INFINITE SPECTRUM: NYC Prog Metal Outfit Confirms North American Tour With Fates Warning
NYC progressive metal troupe INFINITE SPECTRUM has been confirmed as direct support for Fates Warning on a three-week tour in the weeks ahead.
INFINITE SPECTRUM's latest album Haunter Of The Dark, released in June of 2016, is a full-length concept recording based on the short story by master of horror, H. P. Lovecraft, showcasing the band's interpretation of the story to life through ambitious compositions featuring an abundance of dynamic, virtuosic playing, and powerful, melodic vocals. Teaming up with Grammy award-winning engineer Chris Theis, the band created a remarkable sonic journey combining theatrical elements with the progressive metal genre, the band has crafted their own brand of musical storytelling, which includes elements of radio-style drama for a uniquely cinematic listening experience.
Having supported the album with solid bouts of live performances last year, INFINITE SPECTRUM's newest conquest sees the band confirmed to provide direct support for the mighty Fates Warning. At press time, the tour is confirmed to run from June 11th through July 1st, with sixteen shows booked across the Eastern US and lower Canada.
Two weeks after the tour with Fates Warning, the band is set to take part in Progpocalypse Now!, a special progressive rock concert event where INFINITE SPECTRUM will join The Tea Club and Crazy Swedes at Brooklyn's Knitting Factory.

Outburn Magazine's featured 9/10 review praised, "While Haunter Of The Dark may only be a sophomore outing, INFINITE SPECTRUM plays with all of the technique and finesse that more experienced counterparts like Symphony X are known for, and in the pantheon of epic concept albums, this record will surely be remembered." Bloody-Disgusting noted of the album, "If you're a fan of bands like Symphony X or Dream Theater but always wanted them to have a little bit of a horror twist, this is right up your alley," and Music Street Journal wrote, "While still possessing a strong metal edge, they are much more melodic than the death metal bands and not as suffocating in their approach. Their musical style can best be compared to the likes of Symphony X, Dream Theater and Circus Maximus, although with a much darker edge. They are the only Lovecraftian prog metal band I know of."
