||Avantgarde metallers Vulture Industries have been confirmed as special guests only on the first leg of Leprous' upcoming European tour. The Norwegian group is due to hit the road in September for a series of European dates on the "Coal" Tour, starting in their home country. Vulture Industries have also confirmed that their new album will be called The Tower. Be ready!
