FLOOR touring for first time in over eight years


Floridian heavy trio FLOOR are about to embark on their first proper tour in over eight years. Since disbanding, FLOOR‘s overdue notoriety has slowly grown, due in part from laying the foundation for guitar player/vocalist Steve Brooks’ non-stop activity in TORCHE.

Reuniting to celebrate the release of their massive Below & Beyond discography/box set, FLOOR returned for a few key shows over the past year to an overwhelmingly positive response. As a result, the band is now hitting the road for the first time since 2003. In regards to the tour, Brooks had the following to say:

“It’s a celebration. Celebrating our 19 years together, apart, back together, apart and back together again! Dropping bombs like it’s Floorld War III!”
