The Swiss tech death shooting stars comment: "We are excited to embark on the "Interdimensional Spacegoats Across Europe Tour" with our friends in BLOODSHOT DAWN. This run is a very special one, as it marks our very first headlining tour since the release of our debut record "Illuminance" in 2016. We can't wait to perform for all our European supporters again, while we all just confusedly float through space and reach infinite enlightenment in the presence of the ultimate generous goat god. Please grab your tickets before they are all gone!"

VIRVUM will be touring in support of their latest release 'Illuminance'. The album is still available in the Season of Mist shop.

When a relatively unknown Swiss band released their debut album 'Illuminance' in 2016, only insiders suspected the massive impact it would stir. Yet it was on the strength of this release that VIRVUM were offered to sign on Season of Mist. Now their new home is reissuing 'Illuminance’, which is to be available on vinyl for the first time.

VIRVUM were founded by childhood friends in 2007 and since then the aspiring and hard-working musicians continuously fine-tuned and honed the tracks of their first full-length to match their burgeoning skills.

VIRVUM first got noticed when guitarist and main songwriter Nic Gruhn happily took the offer to join a European tour with California's progressive death metal pioneers FALLUJAH while also opening for such renowned bands as SUFFOCATION and CEPHALIC CARNAGE in 2013. On the return of their guitarist, VIRVUM immediately set out to perform as many shows as possible in order to establish the band in Europe.

In 2015, a first single entitled 'Internal Howl' attracted immediate attention and, that same year, VIRVUM were picked to internationally support big names such as DYING FETUS, FLESHGOD APOCALPYSE, and DEFEATED SANITY among others.

In advance of their self-released debut full-length, VIRVUM received a massive response for the song premieres of "Ad Rigorem" and title track in 2016, while the album was highly acclaimed by critics and fans alike.

With their professional attitude, the exceptional technical prowess of each individual musician, and last but never least the outstanding collective songwriting skills, the Swiss are now ready for the next step. While VIRVUM create a new monstrous record in studio, their amazing debut 'Illuminance' is made available again.
