Pioneering electro-industrial act Skinny Puppy will return to the road in North America late this fall with this week’s announcement of “The Alliance of Sound,” a 17-date tour that finds the group joined by dark-electronic compatriots VNV Nation and Haujobb.
The tour, which also will feature opening sets by newcomer EBM/industrial act Youth Code, opens Nov. 28 in Toronto and runs through Dec. 20 in Pomona, Calif. (see full tour dates below).
For Skinny Puppy, the tour follows a large-scale North American trek earlier this year in support of the band’s most recent studio album, Weapon.
Industrial fans no doubt will love the idea of a Skinny Puppy-headlined package tour, although it’s still not the “Monsters of Industrial” tour proposed last year by Front Line Assembly’s Bill Leeb.

2 Skinny Puppy shows in one year, hell yeah !!!!!!!
I haven’t been to a Puppy show in ages. Haujobb an VNV make it so tempting.
NO TEXAS DATE?!?! =(
…At least come to Austin.
No Vegas, Phoenix, Texas, DC… Major markets skipped on this tour. On the VNV site it still says ‘many more dates to come’ so does the tour continue in January?
Saw Skinny Puppy and VNV this year already, cannot wait to go see them together! Off to Montreal!
Guess the FrontLine Assembly/Puppy tour plans did not work out? Now, THAT’s a show!
Been following this on litany……no Texas date….that sux. Otherwise that bit of bad news, should be an other worldly show.
You know, a Dec 4 date in NC would fit in nicely between PA & FL.
Moeg – Those ‘many more dates to come’ are for VNV nation only and not more Skinny Puppy dates.
cmy3K – The FLA/Puppy tour possibilities were nothing more than Bill Leeb wishing for such.
finally, Youth Code has more stage presence and energy than many veteran acts in this scene – that ‘newcomers’ label will surely be dropped after this tour ;)
Cool tour for sure :D
Jannus Live (not Landing) is in St. Petersburg, not Tampa. Close enough, I guess.
What’s the best site to order tickets?
