Champions of Sound 2008

Hydra Head Records is pleased to announce their second ever Champions of Sound US Tour. Originally conceived in 2003 and also featuring label staples and instrumental metal masters, Pelican, this year's trek sees avant-metal pioneers Kayo Dot, supporting their latest "Blue Lambency Downward," and Cave-In frontman Stephen Brodsky (aka Stove Bredsky), support his psychedelic rock masterpiece that is "The Black Ribbon Award." Joining the bill in major cities such as New York, Philadelphia, and Boston, are the almighty Zozobra, whose latest, "Bird of Prey," has been pummeling our eardrums for the past month.

Full tourdates below, if you're lucky enough to live in these cities, do not miss your chance to see one of the best tours to come through town in quite some time.
