TRIBULATION announces North American tour with DEAFHEAVEN this October/November 2015
This October/November, Sweden's TRIBULATION will return to North America for their first stateside run in support of their recently released new album, The Children Of The Night. DEAFHEAVEN will also join the band on the trek (plus ENVY on select dates), making this one tour not to be missed!

TRIBULATION comments: "We are very much looking forward to our third tour in North America. Together with DEAFHEAVEN, who are bringing something unique to the genre, we will explore the darkest corners of our inner, but also where it is as most beautiful. Pain is inevitable, suffering is optional. Come and meet us at the doorstep to the Other."

On their latest album, TRIBULATION combines foreboding death and black metal with vintage rock/metal, as well as dark wave-- offering nods to influential bands of the aforementioned scenes, but refusing to fall into mere mimicry. With a willful drive, an irresistible groove, bewitching melodies and a haunting atmosphere, The Children Of The Night is guaranteed to turn heads of both newcomers and the initiated alike. Join them in death, life, and beyond!

For a preview of The Children Of The Night, fans can listen to the following previously released singles:
--"Strange Gateways Beckon":
For fans in Germany:
--"In The Dreams Of The Dead":
--"The Motherhood Of God":

Read on for a few worldwide reviews of TRIBULATION's critically acclaimed new album:

"2015's 'Album-of the-Year' contender." -- DECIBEL MAGAZINE (USA)

"...'The Children Of The Night' is the best album I've heard in a long time. And you can choose to stay outside, but this one is inviting you in, and showing you something you won't see anywhere else, something you might not see ever again." -- (USA)

"This is another step forward for a band who continue to grow with every album. They blend the more classic metal elements in with their more ethereal colors with ease." -- NO CLEAN (USA)

"...I'm calling it right now: ['The Children Of The Night' is] gonna appear on a whole bunch of year-end lists come December, take my word for it. And it's totally deserving of that honor..." -- METAL (USA)

"... a dramatic work for lovers of a different kind of death." -- METAL HAMMER (DE)

"... to-the-point songwriting with vocal hooks and great atmospheric guitars." -- ROCK HARD (DE)

"When everything is summed up in December, this might very well be the album of the year, in all categories." -- EXPRESSEN (SE)

"An album that blurs the lines between basking in twilight, and losing your mind in the abyss." -- KERRANG (UK)

"Sweden's coolest band is following up the best album of the century by going their own way and creating a new record that forever will be remembered in the history of metal." -- CLOSE-UP (SE)

"Fearless crossing over thresholds both musically and spiritually, TRIBULATION are becoming one of the most luminous bands in the occult metal firmament." -- METAL HAMMER (UK)

"In 1975, QUEEN released 'A Night At The Opera' by many regarded as the highlight of their career and a milestone in the history of rock. 40 years later TRIBULATION does the same for death metal with 'The Children Of The Night.'" -- GAFFA (SE)

"The strength to this album is the change between atmosphere and adrenaline, the opulent guitar work and over and over again the gaze into the abyss. Many have flirted with goth before - but it never sounded as convincing as on this album." -- DEAF FOREVER (DE)

"... simply one of the most impressing albums I have heard lately." -- ROCK TRIBUNE (BE)
