Failure Announce US Tour, Add Troy Van Leeuwen To Lineup

Failure tour poster with Troy Van Leeuwen

Failure has announced a fall US tour as they continue to tour behind their June release The Heart is A Monster (InResidnece). Joining the group will be former member Troy Van Leeuwen (Queens Of The Stone Age, A Perfect Circle) who played on their landmark Fantastic Planet album, as well as four songs on the most recent release.

Ken Andrews commented on Troy Van Leeuwen’s return for the tour:

 

This is a very special tour to me for a couple of reasons.. One reason is the fact that we have some very cool bands joining us: Hum, Torche, Local H, And You Will Know Us by the Trail of Dead. The second reason this tour is so special to me is that we have managed to secure our dear friend and former band mate, Troy Van Leeuwen as the fourth member of Failure for this tour. I’m personally excited by this as it’s going to allow us to expand our live sound and repertoire. Think “Snow Angel” and “I Can See Houses” from The Heart Is A Monster, as well as a few gems from the past like our cover of “Enjoy The Silence.”

 

Failure has also confirmed appearances at The CMJ Festival, Aftershock Festival, and their Australian live debut an appearance at Soundwave 2016.

 

Soundwaves Founder AJ Maddah took to Twitter and personally confirmed Failure’s appearance, saying

Getting Failure to play Soundwave 2015 is my personal definition of success! Fantastic Planet changed my life.”
