INTO ETERNITY Prepares To Hit The Road In Canada

Founding guitarist/principal songwriter Tim Roth of Canadian extreme progressive metallers INTO ETERNITY has issued the following update:

"Today we are leaving on tour for the Summer Slaughter Canadian tour. The band is from Canada, but we have never done a 'proper' full Canadian tour, all the way across the country. The band is really excited to play some new venues and it will be our first time ever in Thunder Bay. It's been three years since we played Calgary, Edmonton and Prince George, so we are interested to see how those gigs go. Playing out east in Toronto, Montreal and Quebec City is a great way to start this tour for us because we always hit those cites on our U.S. tours, so we hope to see our die-hard friends there! The band is also pumped to play in Winnipeg, which is always killer and Regina, our hometown. The band has never come through town on a tour before, so this will be cool for us to chill at home for one day! Vancouver will end this tour and it's our singer Stu's [Block] original hometown. I remember last time we played there with THE HAUNTED; it was insane! It was our biggest merch night of that whole tour, so we are happy to come back. I hope those caf├ęs are still open downtown and we'll be heading to Scrape Records to spend some of our tour money I'm sure...ha!"

HardTimes.ca recently conducted an interview with Tim Roth of. Watch the 10-minute chat below.

Due in North America on September 2 via Century Media Records (August 25 in Europe), INTO ETERNITY's first conceptual offering, "The Incurable Tragedy", marks the band's first recording effort with Justin Bender (guitars) and Steve Bolognese (drums), who came aboard shortly after the group finished Gigantour '06. This CD was inspired by the deaths of Tim Roth's (guitar, vocals) two best friends, brothers Dave and Danny Stephenson, who succumbed to cancer within two months of one another. To make matters worse, Roth's father was diagnosed with cancer as well. Showing no mercy, the disease claimed his life last year, just 10 days before Christmas. Roth channeled his emotions into a moving and riveting album which is sure to propel the band to new heights within the genre. "The Incurable Tragedy" features a slew of tracks with the band's trademarked heavy grooves, stop-on-a-dime time changes, reflective lyrics, memorable choruses, shredding solos, and vocals that range from guttural growls to soaring harmonies.

"The Incurable Tragedy" track listing:

01. Prelude to Woe
02. Tides of Blood
03. Spent Years of Regret
04. Symptoms
05. Diagnosis Terminal
06. The Incurable Tragedy I (Sept. 21, 2006)
07. Indignation
08. Time Immemorial
09. The Incurable Tragedy II (Nov. 10, 2006)
10. A Black Light Ending
11. One Funeral Hymn for Three
12. The Incurable Tragedy III (Dec. 15, 2007)

Roth commented on the album's conceptual inspirations: "The color green is the theme of the album. The new site runs with the green theme as well. Before Dave died, he got a killer green IE icon tattoo on his forearm. Since then, fans from all over have got this same tattoo, but different colors of course. Dave and I had talked about this fifth release back in 2006 and we agreed to go with the color green and then he got his cool tattoo. Dave never got to see it all come to life, but here it is done today for you all to see."
