New Jersey progressive metallers EAST OF THE WALL have confirmed a co-headlining US tour with Chicgo metal trio DIAMOND PLATE.

Sponsored by MetalSucks and Metal Injection, the “Redacted Pulse Tour” is due to kick off on February 28th in Brooklyn, New York, before tearing its way across the US throughout March and into April.  EAST OF THE WALL will be touring in support of their latest release, REDACTION ARTIFACTS while DIAMOND PLATE will be touring in support of their new album, PULSE, both are out now worldwide.

EAST OF THE WALL comment – “It’s going to feel great climbing back in the van and bringing songs from Redaction Artifacts on the road. And it’s been a good time rearranging some of the old material for the new lineup. Plus, we have Diamond Plate keeping us on our toes every night.”

DIAMOND PLATE comment – “We’re kicking off 2014 with a co-headlining tour, featuring the incredibly talented East of the Wall.  We’ll be playing cities we’ve never been in and songs we’ve never played before.  Redacted Pulse, like a heart stopping, combines the album titles of both bands.  People can expect intensity and musicianship at every show.”

Following the release of their third LP, The Apologist, New Jersey-based quintet EAST OF THE WALL have just confirmed a month-long tour of the country this March and into April.

Having already endured a rigorous self-booked trek of America in the Fall months, this second wave of touring in support of The Apologist will see EAST OF THE WALL laying down their oppressively technical wall of progressive metal dissonance alongside Black Tusk for the entire trek. Performances with Prong, Skeletonwitch, Royal Thunder, Intronaut, Gaza and more killer acts fuel the tour as well. A full list of confirmed dates is listed below, with more to be confirmed and added in the days ahead.

Following years of booking their own shows and tours, EAST OF THE WALL have recently partnered with The Pantheon Agency, and through this new alliance the band plan on dominating stages for the rest of 2012.

Recorded by Andrew Schneider at Translator Audio in Brooklyn (Cave In, Pelican, Keelhaul, Unsane, Rosetta), The Apologist undoubtedly portrays the most challenging and groundbreaking EAST OF THE WALL tunes yet, with incredible response from magazines, local newspapers, blogs and through diehard metal and progressive fanbases across the globe still coming in. Released in late October, the CD/digital release of the album was handled by Translation Loss and the 2xLP via Antithetic Records.

“Imagine the metallic flourishes of the math-rock band Don Caballero lasting much longer, the bombastic gruff of Botch injected with melody, and some super-tight, jazz-inspired guitar work.” – NPR

“…an exemplary bit of complexity dominated by hardcore roars (sometimes ganged) and the all-but inevitable hammerfall–instrumental filligree encircles vocal harmonies like a network of fast-growing sentient vines.” – Decibel

“…one of those albums you have to hear to believe. 10/10″ – American Aftermath

“… the same wonky, jazzy, proggy via post-hardcore East of the Wall-isms… but done in new ways, evolved to the next level, more ambitious.” – MetalSucks

“It’s progressive metal in the truest sense of the word. This album is as raw and musically uncompromising as they come.” – Alternative Matter

The album continues to gain momentum, raking in amazing responses, both from those who have followed the band since their work with The Postman Syndrome, Biclops, Day Without Dawn and more over the past decade or more, as well as brand new fans of the technical, nearly unclassifiable act.   Promos of Ressentiment, interviews with the band and live/tour coverage are all available now via Earsplit. Please get in touch with all press inquiries.

“Put simply, East of the Wall have written a minor prog-metal masterpiece without being assholes about it. 9/10″ – Decibel Magazine

…East of the Wall are that rare band that appeal to artsy indie types and metal nerds in equal measures; their dazzling blend of technical post-hardcore aggression, melody and indie sensibility is really one of a kind.” – Metalsucks

“…a somewhat impenetrable proposition of oddball melodies, mind-bending musicianship and new age-y/fusion/jazz of contempo-prog-metal…” – Rock Sound Magazine

“East of the Wall have done everything different and nothing wrong. This is likely to be the single most eclectic album of 2010. I’m tempted to say that Ressentiment is a masterpiece. 10/10″ – Gravedigger Magazine

“…one of the more unique records released this year…a head trip of immense proportions, and well worth your time.” - Popdose

“It’s rare to hear such divergent styles executed at the high level that East of the Wall have managed to reach with this album. 4/5″ – Decoy Music
