US blackened sludge trio Tombs just announced a co-headlining European tour with hardcore outfit The Secret. The tour takes off by the end of July to mid-August. Get the dates after the jump.

About the tour poster, creator Glyn Smyth says: "I wanted to create an image that recognized both bands' existing imagery and subject matter whilst setting it in a new context. The solar and lunar symbols here reference both bands recent releases, overt in the case of The Secret (Solve Et Coagula LP) and subtle in the case of Tomb's (their upcoming album Path Of Totality is the name given to the shadow cast by the Moon during a solar eclipse). The solar symbol in this case is Sol Niger, the "black sun" of the alchemical process.

The final composition took these ideas and placed it within the related realm of early Gnosticism. "The Mother Of Dark Light" in this case is Sophia, the feminine aspect of the divine who in error gives birth to the material, visible universe we inhabit and are currently trapped."
