Cognitive, the New Jersey-based technical death metal unit, has confirmed a 17-show spring 2020 U.S. headlining tour supporting October 2018 release, Matricide. Opening acts include both Cryptodira and Hath.

Speaking about the news, guitarist Rob Wharton stated, “After taking some time off to write our new record we wanted to scratch the itch of getting back on the road. We’ve focused hard on writing our new songs and we’re glad we did. It’s been a while since we did a headliner so we decided to make it special and get a diverse lineup of bands. We have been a fan of Cryptodira for a long time, and their brand of death and math metal is inspiring to say the least. We took Hath out last January prior to them releasing their critically acclaimed album Of Rot and Ruin, so we’re thrilled to bring them out now that everyone knows who they are. We’re excited to hit some new cities and just thankful to be on the road again. Keep an eye out for us being in a town near you!”
