Rivers of Nihil Announce Headline Dates on Contortionist Tour


Technical and progressive death metal fans will be in nerd heaven next month when The Contortionist hits the road to perform Language and Exoplanet in their entireties, especially because they’re bringing along Rivers of Nihil on those dates to perform 2021’s The Work in full.

It’s a pretty large tour and Rivers of Nihil just expanded it for themselves, announcing a number of solo headlining shows on off dates. The entirety of the tour is listed below, with asterisks denoting Rivers of Nihil solo shows.

Writing about The Work in 2021, our beloved founder and former editor Axl Rosenberg said:

“Rivers of Nihil’s new album, The Work, is every bit as good as, if not better than, their last album, Where Owls Know My Name. That’s a big deal, because even the Metal Internet couldn’t find any reason to complain about Owls. Rivers of Nihil have always been great, but now they’ve pulled off the rare feat of producing two back-to-back masterpieces, propelling themselves (assuming there’s any justice in the world) to the next level of Heavy Metal Glory.”

In other words: go see Rivers of Nihil.
