Posted by on February 6, 2018

L.A. prog rock outfit Sifting has announced that they will be direct support for the eight East Coast dates of the Sons of Apollo tour. Guitarist Richard Garcia expresses his excitement for the upcoming tour:

“It’s a huge honor to tour with Sons of Apollo. We’ve been listening to the music these guys have been making since we were born, so sharing the same stage with them every night is a dream come true! We’re beyond excited and we’re ready to make our return to the East Coast. We hope to see some familiar faces as well as meeting new ones! We’ll see everyone soon!”

During this tour, Sifting will be supporting their recently released Not From Here, which was produced by Ryan Williams (Velvet Revolver, Rage Against the Machine) and Steve Evetts (Senses Fail, The Dillinger Escape Plan, Suicide Silence).
