You can hear it in ‘Omens.’ You can see it in our performances, and if you’re around us for five minutes, you can feel it.” Regarding the tour with Killswitch Engage, Morton stated, “Our scene grew from a small, loosely connected network of underground shows in basements and warehouses, into a global phenomenon that helped define an entire generation of modern heavy metal. We are thrilled to announce ‘The Omens Tour,’ which celebrates not only the perseverance and impact of that original movement, but also the creativity and originality of the bands that it influenced.”
