Fresh off a successful tour with Intronaut, instrumental progressive quartet SCALE THE SUMMIT will return to the road this fall during a North American tour with Tesseract. The three-week trek — which immediately follows Tesseract’s tour with Katatonia and Cult of Luna — kicks off in Canada on Oct. 9 and also features opening act Anciients.

In addition, SCALE THE SUMMIT was recently invited to take part in next year’s Cruise To The Edge with legendary English group Yes, with whom they will also take the stage this weekend at the inaugural progressive rock festival Yestival at the Susquehanna Bank Center in Camden, NJ. This marks another addition to the impressive list of groups SCALE THE SUMMIT will have performed alongside, a who’s-who of progressive metal ranging from modern genre leaders Protest the Hero, Periphery and Between The Buried And Me to iconic acts such as Dream Theater, Cynic and Devin Townsend.
Upon its June release, SCALE THE SUMMIT’s new album The Migration cracked the Billboard Top 200, peaking at #3 on the magazine’s Heatseekers chart. Recorded at Basement Studios with Jamie King (BTBAM), The Migration received a perfect 10/10 score from Outburn Magazine and a near-perfect 4.5-star rating from Alternative Press, who labeled the album “post-rock at its most melodic and dynamic best.”
