He also announces his #NEWGOREORDER tour which Phase 1 launches thisThursday, May 1 in Albuquerque.
The two-month tour passes through 20 American cities, following Albuquerque with Phoenix and San Francisco and then mostly reaching into the eastern side of the country including stops in Miami, Nashville, Atlanta, Orlando and Chicago, to name a few. He'll also dip into Canadafor dates in Edmonton and Vancouver. Festival plays include appearances at Sunset Music Festival in Tampa, EDC New York over Memorial Day Weekend and Spring Awakening in Chicago. At each show, he'll perform a round-up of mind-blowing music, making fans privy to some of the material that will be featured on his new album.
The thrills don't stop there-he'll soon be premiering the official music video for "Unicorn Zombie Apocalypse." BORGORE tapped horror movie director James Cullen Bressack to lend a spooky vibe to the forthcoming visuals.
