William Control has spent most of last year on the road supporting industrial act Combichrist. Now, the Aiden frontman will embark on his own headlining tour with the help of his backing band The Neuromantic Boys.
The Punishment Tour kicks off on May 6 at the Music Garage in Salt Lake City, Utah and concludes at the Studio Seven in Seattle, Washington on June 11. California alternative metal outfit Requiem and Brooklyn alternative industrial act Justin Symbol will join him as special guests. Tickets for this tour are on sale right now. If you're looking for VIP tickets, there's still some left here.
William Control will be touring in support of his latest album The Neuromancer, which was released on his own Control Records. Wil Francis started the William Control project in 2008 and released his debut studio album Hate Culture that same year. Over the years, William Control have toured with acts such as Escape The Fate, The Used, and Combichrist. Recently, Wil announced that Aiden will be returning with a new album this year through his record label. With the additional announcement of founding bass player Nick Wiggins' departure from the band, this makes Wil the only original member of Aiden left.
Requiem will be touring in support of their debut album The Unexplainable Truth, which is out on Cleopatra Records. The band recently finished a West Coast trek with Farewell, My Love and recruited new members Angela Peyton (guitar/vocals), Ryan Loomis (drummer), and Corey Cota (bass/vocals).
Justin Symbol released his debut album V Ω I D H E A D back in October.
