Imperial Triumphant announces USA headlining tour with Cloak, Couch Slut; launches live video for "Metrovertigo"; set to appear at Roadburn 2023 mainstage


After releasing their latest record, Spirit of Ecstasy, earlier this year to critical acclaim, avantgarde metal trio Imperial Triumphant are back today with a video for the album track "Metrovertigo" - to coincide with their announcement for a USA headlining trek in 2023! See below for all dates, featuring support from Cloak and Couch Slut (who will be special guests during Imperial Triumphant's performance, providing guest vocals, horns, and more!). For a preview of their stunning live show, be sure to check out the clip of "Metrovertigo" (filmed in London and created by CAM SHUCK PRODUCTIONS) here:


Zachary Ezrin (vocals, guitar) comments: "Imperial Triumphant will be bringing the chaos of New York City to the eastern coast of the USA this winter. We are excited to be accompanied by black metal band Cloak and fellow metropolitans Couch Slut on this excursion. This will be our first headline tour since 2021 and we are elated to bring our golden ritual to a few select cities. We will be joined by horns and special guests making this tour one not to be missed."
