After releasing their latest, full-length album ‘Shiki’ in 2022 and now their new live album ‘Live: Eastern Forces of Evil 2022’, SIGH will be bringing their signature brand of Metal to the masses across Europe and the UK this autumn.

This will be a headline tour for Sigh and features Laster as a special guest throughout the tour as well. The tour will be both a celebration of the 30th anniversary of the band’s debut album ‘Scorn Defeat’ and will also see the band performing material off their new album ‘Shiki’.

This will also be the first to run feature their new guitarist Nozomu and promises to be one for the ages.

Mirai elaborates on the tour below:

“Although we played in Europe here and there, it’s been a while since we actually “toured” there. We really cannot wait to be on the road again. This tour includes Poland where we have never played before. Also, it’s been almost 30 years since we played in Ireland last time!  

This tour is not only to support the latest album “Shiki” out on Peaceville last year but to celebrate the 30th anniversary of our debut album “Scorn Defeat”. With the new guitarist, Nozomu, on board, I can assure you that Sigh has by far the strongest line-up ever. Don’t miss The Eastern Forces of Evil!”
