A full list of confirmed shows can be found below.
The band comments on the tour: “It feels so unreal to announce that we will be touring Europe next May 2021, in the splendid company of Enslaved, Intronaut and Crown! It’s been a long time since we last hit the road, so you can’t begin to imagine how rabid we are to jump on the stage again. We are preparing a show that will match the wildness, passion and glory contained in ‘MEAT MACHINE’. Those of you who have attended any of our shows already know that nothing brings us more joy than playing live, so rest assured that we are already counting down the days till we can see your face again in May 2021. Your city must fall!”
The experimental Barcelonian outfit recently released their guttiest work to date; ‘MEAT MACHINE’ last month! Listen to album in full HERE.

OBSIDIAN KINGDOM is devoted to exploring the boundaries of Rock music. The Barcelonan band defies classification to this very day, drawing equally on progressive rock, post-metal, alternative and electronic music. However hard to pigeonhole, it remains consistent with delivering exciting content that never fails to surprise its audience.
Forever on a restless journey to find its true identity, the quintet has been dubbed “the masters of every genre” by the media. Featuring a heavy and intense sound with plenty of contrast, its main features are the ability to portray a wide range of emotions through the use of multiple sonic resources, a deep interest in aesthetics and the sombre quality of the lyrical topics.
‘MEAT MACHINE’ is a frantic attempt at self-discovery, through a head-first plunge into the anxiety derived from sexual frustration, the absurd of reality and the inherent cruelty of a mechanized world. It is a demanding album that reads as an emotional roller-coaster, featuring an abrasive and overwhelming sound that draws equally from noise and art rock, post metal and late 90s alternative music.
