French electronic/metal/etc act IGORRR have announced a 2022 tour with Japanese noise rock greats Melt-Banana and gothy duo VOWWS. Dates begin February 17 in San Diego and hit Albuquerque, Austin, Houston, Tampa, Atlanta, Baltimore, NYC, Boston, Montreal, Toronto, Chicago, Denver, Seattle, Portland, San Francisco, Los Angeles and more. All dates are listed below.

The NYC show happens March 2 at Gramercy Theatre and the L.A. show, which caps the tour, happens March 15 at The Regent. Tickets for the whole tour go on sale Friday, June 18 at 10 AM local with various presale starting beforehand.

IGORRR, who toured with Ministry and fellow French band Carpenter Brut a few years ago, released Spirituality and Distortion last year, which Pallbearer’s Brett Campbell named as one of his 2022 favorites, writing: "Combining breakcore, death metal, glitch, opera, and middle eastern instruments, Spirituality and Distortion manages to be coherent despite its disparate influences. At the very least, it makes for a fascinating and unpredictable listen. It can be funny, bizarre, epic, and heavy as fuck, often all within the same song. If the blue alien woman from the Fifth Element started a death metal band with Venetian Snares, it might sound something like this." You can stream that below.

This will be Melt-Banana's first North American tour in a while. VOWWS toured with Cold Cave and ADULT. in 2019.
