Sumerian Records will be celebrating it’s 10 year anniversary with the announcement of the “10 Years In The Black Tour” featuring label artists Asking Alexandria and Born Of Osiris.

Supporting acts include I See Stars, After The Burial, Upon a Burning Body and Bad Omens that will round out the North American tour, which launches on Oct. 25 at Seattle’s Showbox Sodo and wraps up in early December.

“I can’t remember the last time I was this excited for a tour,” Asking Alexandria guitarist Ben Bruce said. “Not only is this our first true North American headlining tour in two years, as well as our first real U.S. headliner with Denis [Stoff] as our vocalist, but this is also a tour celebrating the incredible 10 year journey of Sumerian Records. We couldn’t be more proud to headline such a pivotal tour package and to celebrate the music Sumerian has released.  The tour will include our biggest production to date and the first trek out in support of our new album, The Black. This is going to be something incredibly special.”

“To see the celebration of a decade of Sumerian culminate with this tour is a true reflection of the communal spirit and vision that this label was built upon,” said Sumerian Records Founder Ash Avildsen.  “Fans will get to see five headliners all go out together, which is very rare these days because of tour politics, egos, money and everything else that gets in the way of giving music lovers an unforgettable line-up. The fact that these five bands are sharing the stage together and still bringing an opening act to kick off the show makes this a truly special tour. I comment them all. Stay tuned for for lots of upcoming announcements about different activities for bands and fans to interact at at these shows that go beyond just watching them perform on stage.  Mark my words: This will be the most progressive and interactive tour we have ever done. See you on the road.”
Asking Alexandria released The Black in March 2016.  Born of Osiris released their fifth album, Soul Sphere, in fall 2015, and are about to kick off the Sumerian Alliance tour in Europe.  I See Stars just released the album Treehouse this year. Minneapolis’ After The Burial also have a recent release, Dig Deep, which arrived in February 2016. Upon a Burning Body are currently working on what will be their fourth album. Bad Omens release their self-titled debut in August 2015.
