As previously reported, MESHUGGAH's Tomas Haake will make an appearance at Tom Lee Drum Centre in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada on February 8 from 3:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. before the Vancouver date of the Swedish metal band's North American tour.

Intent on decimating the boundaries of extreme music with their metric art, MESHUGGAH has returned to North America as part of a 17-show headlining tour presented by MySpace Music. Direct support to MESHUGGAH is provided by the legendary progressive metal band CYNIC. Opening all shows are technical progressive death metallers THE FACELESS from Los Angeles.
