OHGR Announces North American Trek

Electronic music icon and Skinny Puppy vocalist Ogre is taking his OHGR project on the road with a 25-date tour kicking off November 18 in San Diego, CA. The tour is in support of the highly anticipated new release Devils In My Details, which arrives in stores the day the tour kicks off.

The opener for the tour is American Memory Project, consisting of two ohGr collaborators, filmmaker/guitarist William Morrison and drummer/composer Justin Bennett. American Memory Project is a unique and startling multimedia project mixing visuals and audio "from the past, the future, and the present in real time."

Devils In My Details is Ogre's third solo disc and most personal and conceptual work to date in his 25-year career. The 11-track disc was recorded with longtime creative foil Mark Walk (Ruby) and is an immersive experience intended to emulate the feel of such 70's progressive rock classics as The Lamb Lies Down On Broadway from Genesis and Tales of Mystery and Imagination by The Alan Parsons Project -- both of which were major influences on Ogre and Walk while growing up. "I'm grateful to be able to make a record like this," said Ogre. "If we were in any other situation, the standard model is to write two hit singles and fill in the holes as best you can. That's the mode a lot of musicians are in right now. We're trying to do things from the heart, regardless of what the commerce end of music dictates."
