Atlanta, Georgia's HALCYON WAY are about to hit the road with the legendary Queensryche for a month-long USA tour to support their Billboard-charting 4th album, Conquer. The tour starts on January 7, 2016 in San Jose, CA and continues their string of high profile tours in the USA & abroad with bands such as Saxon, Skid Row, Fates Warning, UDO, Delain, and Fozzy.  The tour runs through February 4th in Salt Lake City, UT, a complete list of dates is below.
 
Conquer hit the shelves to universal critical acclaim in August of 2014 and the band has performed on three continents since then to promote its release.  The lead single, "Web Of Lies" spent 6 weeks on the CMJ Hard Top 10.  Conquer was produced by guitarist Jon Bodan and Lasse Lammert (Alestorm, Gloryhammer), who has mixed all of the band's releases.
 
Check out the video for the song "Web of Lies" HERE.
 
"HW is super excited to hit the road in the USA again to support our Conquer release, and to be able to go out with Queensryche, who are an all-time favorite band of mine, is incredibly cool.  The guys are on a huge upswing with their new album, and we're proud to help them kick off their touring season for it."
 
Guitarist Jon Bodan about the upcoming tour:
 
"HALCYON WAY have been looking for another great tour to get onto for USA to support the Conquer release, and getting to go out with Queensryche for a month is going to be an amazing experience.  'Operation:Mindcrime' is probably my favorite album of all time and I consider these guys to be a big influence on my playing & writing style.  So we're really excited about getting out there in front of our fans again in the USA, and also for hitting the road with Queensryche.  Then as soon as we get back off the road, we're going to get back to work on our 5
th album, which is mostly written already."
 
The band recently started pre-production for the follow-up to Conquer and plans to hit the studio in Spring of 2016.

HALCYON WAY CONFIRM RELEASE DATE, REVEAL ARTWORK AND TRACK LISTING FOR CONQUER

Artist: 
HALCYON WAY Confirm Release Date, Reveal Artwork and Track Listing for Conquer
  Conquer Available August 19th in North America on Nightmare Records
And August 23rd in Europe via Massacre Records
 
Award Winning Atlanta, Georgia Progressive Metallers HALCYON WAY have confirmed an August 19 North American release date and an August 23 European release date for their new album Conquer.  The album will be released on Nightmare Records in North America and via Massacre Records in Europe.  The artwork and track listing for Conquer have now been unveiled.
 
Singer Steve Braun commented on the new album: 
"We are super stoked about how this entire album has come out, from music down to the artwork.  Once again our good friend Travis Smith has taken our basic artwork concept and made it into a masterpiece. The artwork visually shows the struggles we as a band have faced and how it could have destroyed us, yet at the same time shows how we've emerged from the rubble as a solid unit ready to conquer ANY obstacle in our way.  For us we raised the bar with Building the Towers back in 2010, and with the new album Conquer we've surpassed our wildest dreams."
 
A video for the song "Web of Lies" from the new album can be viewed HERE.
 
HALCYON WAY was founded in 2001 and released its successful debut album "A Manifesto For Domination" in 2008 (via Nightmare Records).
 
HALCYON WAY's sound cannot be neatly slotted into any sub-category of metal; but it can be described as heavy, catchy, technical, and above all, focused on mature song craft.  The band draws influences & inspiration from many metal bands from Megadeth to Dream Theater, Testament or Chimaira.  The focus of the songwriting is on catchy hooks, vocal harmonies à la King's X or Stryper, and on heavy, technical, but ultimately accessible instrumentation.
 
Conquer Track Listing:
1. Conquer
2. Web Of Lies
3. Conceived In Torment
4. Home
5. World Comes Undone
6. Militant
7. Hatred Is My Cause
8. The Poisoned Apple
9. Save Your Tears
10. Every Second Counts (USA Bonus Track)
11. King Of Ruin
12. Eviscerate The Morning Sun
