Voivod celebrate Juno award for Metal/Hard Music Album Of The Year; kick off North America tour

Voivod are touring with YOB in support of their award winning album The Wake

Congratulations are due to Canadian progressive sci-fi metal innovators VOIVOD for winning a Juno Award (Canadian equivalent to the Grammy Awards) for “Metal/Hard Music Album Of The Year” for their current studio effort “The Wake”, which was released via Century Media Records worldwide last September.

After previous nominations for “Nothingface“ in 1991 and “Angel Rat“ in 1993, the 2019 award is a first in the 36 years of VOIVOD history. Well deserved!

VOIVOD’s Michel “Away“ Langevin checked in with the following comment: “We are still floating from winning our very first Juno, for our new album ‘The Wake‘. It is the best source of energy to get ready for the upcoming North American tour with YOB and Amenra. We are also thrilled to go back to Europe this summer! Another highlight for us this year should be our show at the Montreal Jazz Festival in June. See you soon!“
