CHIMP SPANNER are set to spend the summer travelling across the USA, as they join the amazing 'Intrinsic 2012 tour'. Featuring headliners, THE CONTORTIONIST, as well as the lengendary JEFF LOOMIS and label mates, 7 HORNS 7 EYES, the tour is presented by METALSUCKS with additional sponsorship from Royal Family Clothing and Guitar World Magazine.
Kicking off in Indianapolis, IN, dates will run through July and August.
Comments Chimp Spanner mastermind, Paul Ortiz: "Hey all! Well, enough of you asked for it, so...Chimp Spanner is finally coming to America! I'm beyond stoked to be playing alongside The Contortionist, Jeff Loomis and label mates 7 Horns 7 Eyes. This tour will be a little unusual, however; I'll be enlisting the help of Greg and Anup from Jeff Loomis's band. We all would have loved the first US tour to be the full package but as I'm sure you guys know, getting off this little island is expensive at the best of times so this was the best hope of getting over there this year and making an American debut. Next time it'll be all of us, with just a little help from you guys. So check out the dates, come down and rock out with us! See you all soon."
