With new album Dead Planet released last month on Good Fight Music, Hollow Earth announces an extensive North American tour for March and April.
Kicking off March 2nd in Chicago, running through Canada to the West Coast and back, the tour sees Hollow Earth team up with an awesome array of acts, including Trial frontman Greg Bennick's spoken word set, and bands such as Great Reversals, Withdrawal, Heiress, Wake of Humanity, and Outlet.
Reviewing latest album Dead Planet, MetalSucks hailed Hollow Earth as "moody, tribal, and groovy... one of the finest metallic hardcore acts on the scene today." Metal Injection called the album, "between profound beauty and earth shattering tribal hits... sonically precise and larger than life... a benchmark for future releases on Good Fight Music." A sci-fi concept album, Dead Planet uses crushing, Neurosis-level assaults and radiant melodies to paint pictures of outer space grandeur and horror.

"Between profound beauty and earth shattering tribal hits... Sonically precise and larger than life... A benchmark for future releases on Good Fight Music."
"Moody, tribal, and groovy... One of the finest metallic hardcore acts on the scene today."
"Slow motion otherworldly sludge jams. They delicately toe the line between Neurosis' psychedelic mantras and Dangers' incisive diatribes on the absurd modern condition."
"Sometimes sounding like a hardcore band who accidentally stepped on a phaser pedal, and other times like Slowdive getting beaten up in an alley, it surprisingly plays to the strengths of both ideas – big hooks but also a focused approach that still delivers the riff."
"A fascinating new take on post-metalcore, one where riffs and atmosphere can coexist somewhere in space."
