NILE ANNOUNCE 'ART OF NOISE II' TOUR;

On the heels of their appearance as part of the recent "Blackest of the Black" Tour, Relapse Records recording artists NILE have announced their third U.S. headlining tour in support of their critically acclaimed album In Their Darkened Shrines.
The tour, dubbed the "Art of Noise II" will kick off September 30th, 2003 and will criss-cross the United States. Support on the tour will be provided by KREATOR, VADER, AMON AMARTH and GOATWHORE. The "Art of Noise II" Tour follows NILE's successful "Art of Noise" Tour that took place last January / February featuring NILE with guests NAPALM DEATH and STRAPPING YOUNG LAD.
Guitarist / vocalist Karl Sanders commented, "We're very happy to give music fans a package that will certainly be a quality metal bill comprised of a variety of excellent bands. We're looking forward to starting the tour and getting out there to see all of the NILE fans soon."
In addition to the Art of Noise II Tour, NILE have announced their first headlining tour of Japan as well as their first European festival appearances. NILE will headline the eighth installment of Japan's "Extreme the Dojo" Tour, which will begin on July 13th at Tokyo's Club Quattro. NILE will also appear at Italy's "Gods of Metal" Festival, the "Fields of Rock" Festival in the Netherlands (alongside METALLICA, MARILYN MANSON and DISTURBED), Germany's Wacken Open Air Festival and Switzerland's Z-7 Festival, amongst a plethora of additional European appearances.
