Oni Kicks Off Select U.s. Tour Dates With Devin Townsend Project

Technical/progressive metal band ONI further solidified themselves as an unmistakable talent to watch with the recent announcement of their impressive tour support plans. Tomorrow, ONI joins up with the great Devin Townsend Project for select dates running through May 5, and then starting May 16, opens two dates with another massive line-up: Gojira, Deafheaven and Code Orange. See below for a full listing of dates.

Get a taste of ONI's head-turning, unmatched live assault via their brand new music video for "Spawn and Feed", viewable now via ONI's Facebook page and YouTube channel. The video features footage taken from 23 concerts in 13 countries across Europe during the band's tour with Children of Bodom earlier this year. "Spawn and Feed" is cut from ONI's breakout 2016 Backlight Media/Metal Blade Records release, Ironshore.

Ironshore, which hit stores in November 2016, can be ordered now via and/or streamed via  Spotify. Ironshore was produced by Josh Wilbur, primarily recognized for his work with top metal artists Lamb Of God and Gojira. Upon release of the album, ONI undoubtedly introduced the metal world to the wonders of Xylosynth, which you can witness first hand via this superhuman playthrough for the track "Barn Burner" here.

Did you know that?

The Who were originally called The Detours, then changed their name to The Who after a suggestion by Townsend´s friend Richard Barnes. Their first manager, Pete Meaden, renamed them The High Numbers, and they released one unsuccessful single, Zoot Suit, under that name. When EMI dropped them the band sacked Pete Meaden and went back to being called The Who.

It is said another possible reason was because of Peter Townshend´s grandmother, who would always refer to popular bands as "The Who?" mainly because of hard hearing.
