RIVERS OF NIHIL will return to the road this Fall on a North American tour supporting The Contortionist. The month-long trek – which begins on September 11th in Dallas, Texas and runs through October 15th in Indianapolis, Indiana – will feature the band performing their latest full-length, The Work, in its entirety!

Comments guitarist Brody Uttley, “We can’t wait to hit the road with The Contortionist this September. On the heels of playing Where Owls Know My Name in its entirety in 2019, we’ve decided to offer our fans another full album live experience. The new songs that we’ve been playing from The Work have been going over in a huge way live, so we hope to make this one the most immersive live experiences that we’ve ever brought out. This one is sure to be one to remember. See you there.”

RIVERS OF NIHIL released The Work last Fall on Metal Blade Records. The band has never fit neatly into a box, but with 2018’s Where Owls Know My Name, they transcended all labels applied to them. Returning in 2021 with The Work, they’ve forged further into new territory, delivering an album that’s as cerebral as it is visceral, and that covers a staggering sonic range, definitively placing them in a category of their own. Inarguably a dense, heavy collection, The Work is far too dynamic to be considered a solely metal record and there is a genuine warmth that shows through, particularly tracks like “Wait” and the gorgeous “Maybe One Day.”

Additionally, the band has incorporated far more clean vocals alongside the screaming that tears through many of the record’s heavier tracks. Courtesy of their friend Zach Strouse, saxophone once again adds extra layers of atmosphere to the collection, utilizing baritone, soprano, and alto saxes to great effect.
