Touring all over Europe in support of their latest release 'Eidolon', New Brunswick's ECMA nominees and Music NB award winning doom duo ZAUM announce they will be trekking across their home country of Canada for the month of August with support from Pembroke, ON crusty metal punk two piece Flying Fortress featuring Brandon Wars (Goat Horn, Zuku) vocals/bass and Steelrider (Goat Horn, Cauldron) drums. The tour will be kicking off on August 3rd in Ottawa and head west for it to wrap up in the east on August 22nd in Sudbury, ON (dates listed below).
The band comments: “It has been a couple of years since we’ve toured within our home country as we’ve primarily focused our efforts overseas since our formation in 2014. Needless to say, we’re super stoked for this summer adventure across this giant beauty of a country in support of our newest record Eidolon. We were actually just fresh back from our showcase at Roadburn 2017 (with the likes of Baroness and Chelsea Wolfe) and thought, there’s really no better Canadian band and dudes to do a Canadian tour with than our old buds in Flying Fortress – and luckily the stars have aligned in our favour.”

ZAUM is a passage toward the dark realizations of the old world; a monolithic doomy mantra based meditative experience forged by bass and drums interwoven with sitar, woodwind, string and synth textures. Based in New Brunswick, Canada – observers experience a tranquil resonance whereby the astral and physical planes can co-exist and be understood from a natural perspective.
