Veil of Maya to headline reputed college festival Saarang '18. Delhi and Guwahati among other cities on the band's debut India tour list.

On 13 January 2018, hundreds of metalheads from south India will flock to Chennai's esteemed technical college IIT Madras as the American metalcore band Veil of Maya makes a pit-stop for its ongoing India tour. The college's festival Saarang will host the Chicago-born band as the headliners for the 2018 edition.

The tour begins with Delhi on 10 January, before heading to Guwahati the following day. IIT Madras will be the only college venue on the band's debut India tour. With the release of their sixth studio album less than three months ago, one can expect the band to unleash the new singles. Since their divergence from their deathcore sound, they have had several lineup changes and have released 6 hit albums.

Previous editions have seen crowds of over 6000 rocked by the likes of Opeth, Karnivool and Parikrama. Veil of Maya was founded by Mark Okubo, Sam Applebaum and Kris Higler. Their first four albums were Deathcore albums, with peaking at #1 in the US Heats. With the release of Matriarch, and several lineup changes, they diverged into metalcore, with elements of djent and deathcore. The band is known for their heavy and intricate guitar-laden sound. At their live shows, elements of death metal with theatrical samples that transition between each live song form the full-frontal assault of savage guitar work. Their progressiveaggressive take on modern metal delivers low bass tones and mystifying song structure. Their newest singles Overthrow and Doublespeak, from their sixth album False Idol are showing the new era of Veil of Maya, one of definite excitement.
