Canadian Melodic Death Metallers LAIKA will be playing several shows in their homecountry in July together with technical Death Metallers ABHORUPT. The band has issued the following statement about the upcoming tour: "With this new tour we are showing the newer sound of LAIKA and exposing fans to true Winnipeg Melodic Death Metal. We have enlisted Ronnie Ladobruk on guitar to join us on the journey out west. If this name sounds familiar, you may know him from this year’s Canada’s Got Talent! He was part of the Winnipeg Auditions. Ronnie has been putting a crazy amount of effort to make this tour a successful one. He’s an awesome guitarist and we can’t wait to show him the tour life." After the tour LAIKA will be heading into the studio with Ryan Forsyth again to record the long overdue follow up to 2010’s "Crafting The Cataclysm", which was self-released and made available for free download at this location. A sneak peak of two tracks planned to be released on the second album can be heard on the band’s SoundCloud page. All further information at www.laikametal.com, www.facebook.com/laikaofficial
