Earlier this year, it looked like Jinjer's future as a band was completely up in the air. The Ukrainian metal band had to pull out of their slot of March's Knotfest Roadshow tour in order to aid their loved ones back in their embattled home country, and in an interview with BBC that same week, bassist Eugene Abdukhanov said, "I'm not thinking about my job, my business, my band, popularity, anything like that. I am only thinking about my family because they are outside of Ukraine. They really need me, and I cannot be with them."
However, after a few months of taking time away from the band to fundraise and provide aid for their fellow citizens, Jinjer returned to the stage at Switzerland's Greenfield Festival back in June for their first show of 2022, and after announcing a U.K. tour slated for 2023, the band have announced that they're actually returning to the road for a U.S. tour later this fall.
Jinjer will be the headlining act, while P.O.D. will serve as direct support alongside three other openers; Vended, Space of Variations and Malevolence. The hefty trek kicks off October 31st in San Diego and will travel throughout the U.S. for about a month, then break for a three-date Australian tour in early December before the band come back to the States and play a few shows that wrap up in L.A. on December 22nd.
Tickets go on sale Friday August 26th at 10 a.m. local time and will be available here. See the full routing below.
