After their tour of Europe last year, it seems melodic metalcore group Sable Hills are interested in heading back. The band has confirmed that they will return to Wacken Open Air in August, which is noteworthy because they were also present last year at the German festival. Whether this means the band will plan another European tour remains to be seen.

The German metal festival has long since sold out, so it is hoping for fans that they have more plans for shows on European soil. Besides this news, the four-piece metal band shared the news that they have a one-man show planned for 11 June at Daikanyama Unit where they will play their most recent album Duality in its entirety, as well as performing new tracks and hits.
The band was formed in Tokyo in September 2015 by brothers vocalist Takuya and guitarist Rict. The band is currently further amplified by bassist UEDA and drummer Keita. Sable Hills are known to present very melodic, yet punchy and energetic songs. The metal band is often referred to as ‘the future of metal’.
Recently, the band organised their own festival called FRONTLINE FESTIVAL, where more than 10 bands performed, such as Sailing Before The Wind, Ailiph Doepa, Dexcore, Graupel, Asunojokei and many more. They were also seen at Knotfest Japan, coldrain’s Blare Fest and even in the Philippines and Taiwan for shows.
