Berlin psychedelic hard rock trio KADAVAR has announced a North American headlining tour, set to kick off on April 4 in Houston, TX. The scheduled five week trek — presented by Scion AV — will see the band take the stage in 25 major markets across the U.S. and Canada, bringing its much talked about live show and deep daze retro-metal to as many music fans as possible. KADAVAR continues to thrill audiences across the globe, touring in support of its latest LP Abra Kadavar, a record that “takes us back to the origins of metal” (Popmatters) and self-titled debut, called “perfectly styled 70s psych-metal from a Berlin trio that cheated on Led Zeppelin with Pentagram” (SPIN).

We are excited to return to North America and our amplifiers are at the ready,” comments KADAVAR vocalist / guitarist Christoph Lindemann. ”We hope you are ready for what we are bringing your way. See you soon.”
