Prog Metal outfit THIRD ION, featuring former members of THE DEVIN TOWNSEND BAND and INTO ETERNITY, have announced a string of dates that will see the band hitting six Canadian cities later this month.
Guitarist Justin Bender comments: “We are so stoked to bring our nerdy brand of prog metal to western Canada! It’s been a crazy year getting this band off the ground and with an album nearly finished, we need a break, so we decided to hit the road. Join us and all the exceptionally killer bands that are opening each show, for our debut shows in six cities!”

09/11 Winnipeg, MB @ The Zoo (w/ Grand Master and Dissolution)
09/12 Regina, SK @ The Exchange (w/ Magnetic and Room 333)

THIRD ION is putting the finishing touches on their debut full-length, 13/8Bit. The band recently posted the lead single off the album, “Capitol Spill,” – check it out below!
THIRD ION is the product of a mutual love of prog, video games, and science. The debut album will contain eight to ten songs, including the title track which is written entirely in 13/8 time signature. 8-Bit musical renditions of every song will be released as well, to pay homage to their 1980s classic gaming inspirations.
