Seoul, Korea-based metalcore band VASSLINE will be embarking on a three-week U.S. tour beginning in early September. Confirmed dates so far are as follows:
Sep. 04 - Dayton, OH @ Dwell in Darkness
Sep. 10-11 - Chicago, IL @ The Scoreboard
Commented VASSLINE guitarlist Chainsaw: "We are very thrilled to go our very first U.S. tour, which should be the very first U.S. tour ever made by a Korean metal/hardcore band. We are very excited to meet and see all the great metal/hardcore bands and fans. It might be strange to play in a foreign country, but we are pretty sure that it's going to be a GOOD ONE! We'll see you there."
In related news, VASSLINE are scheduled to film a video for the second single off their "Blood of Immortality" album, "Flowers in the Sand", before the end of the month. The clip will be directed by VASSLINE frontman Woosuk, who also co-helmed band's first video, "Assassin of Death".
Commented Chainsaw: "This track is very last song we wrote (for 'Blood of Immortality'). Many of us may confront personal limitations, and sometimes this limitation is not likely to be conquered. And certain people accept it as a fact that they are at the end and lose their will to live. The last thing we need is abandonment. This song tells you not to give up, not to accept the failure, and not to confirm an end. In musical aspect, I tried to put some influence from old school punks like [7 SECONDS], to give feelings like [SLAYER]'s 'Undisputed Attitude', punk music played by metal band."
