ORIGIN Welcome Back Drummer Announce Summer Tour Plans

Renowned drummer John Longstreth has rejoined ORIGIN, the cult technical death metal band he played and recorded with over the band’s first two albums ("Informis, Infinitas, Inhumanitas" and "Origin").

ORIGIN will hit the road for an extensive U.S. tour that will last through the better part of the summer. The tour will begin on July 19 in Oklahoma City and circle the U.S. before concluding on August 26. This is the band’s first headlining tour backing their latest release, "Echoes of Decimation". An e-card for "Echoes of Decimation" can be found here. Additionally, ORIGIN have been tapped to make its first European appearance with a headlining performance at Fuck the Commerce festival in Luckau, Germany in May.
