Zygnema Announce 16-City Reform Rebirth European Tour
The Mumbai metallers will head out in March and April for club shows, in addition to releasing a new single
After a gap of nearly six years, Mumbai thrash/groove metallers Zygnema will return to Europe for a nine-country tour that runs from March 22nd to April 6th.
Zygnema, who last performed at Norway’s Inferno Metal Festival in 2013, will head out on what will be their fourth visit to Europe. Previous shows include a short tour in Germany in 2011, playing metal festival Wacken Open Air in 2012. Guitarist Sidharth Kadadi says their new tour was more or less starting from scratch. “It took us six months to compile this properly. We are working with a small agency who helped us to compile this tour. It’s going to a be mad independent tour where we will be playing to a set of new audience. Always fun to do that,” he says.
The Reform Rebirth European tour, which takes its name from a song off their 2015 album What Makes Us Human Is Obsolete, kicks off in Maribor, Slovenia on March 22nd, travels to Italy, France, Switzerland, Germany, Poland, Czech Republic, Hungary and Croatia. Kadadi mentions that in terms of investing into an overseas tour, it’s their first step towards a bigger goal. “We have carefully curated this tour and we are pretty sure we won’t come back home all dried up and exhausted,” he says.
In addition to the tour, there’s a new single called “I am Nothing” in the works that the band will release as a surprise, with a music video. Zygnema will perform at Hard Rock CafÃ©, Pune on January 24th, at Hard Rock CafÃ©, Mumbai on January 27th and at annual metal festival Fireball in Guwahati on February 24th as warmup for Europe. Kadadi adds, “If needed we might just announce a last minute gig to soak in all the energy from Mumbai. We are going to miss those wild pits. But we certainly are going to instigate the same while we are on the road.”
