After releasing Improvised. Electronic. Device. last year, Front Line Assembly (Metropolis) was forced to cancel its U.S. tour due to “unforeseen and problematic issues.” Just as they promised, though, the group has planned a new set of dates for 2011, scheduled to kick off this May.

The tour, which starts May 15 in Winnipeg, will feature support from Die Krupps and Bill Leeb. In a press release, keyboardist Jeremy Inkel relayed the challenges the upcoming tour will pose:

First and foremost, since we pretty much play everything live, it puts a whole new spin on the studio music. Having guitars and drums and vocals performing the songs as a whole versus studio cuts, it really gives it an organic feel. The band’s personalities mixed with the visuals and lights creates a wonderful live aspect of the band, and the vision that we have. The fact that we have had one of the best responses ever for an FLA album, we actually can’t wait to go out there and play this music, which as a performer is very exciting and inspiring for us all. It’s the reason we like to make this music, to achieve it live and give fans a great experience, as well the feedback from the audience is priceless for us.”
