INSOMNIUM recently announced a new split 7" with OMNIUM GATHERUM, which will be "double A-sided" (meaning, each band has their own front-cover side) and contain one track from INSOMNIUM, "Out To The Sea" (which previously appeared on the now sold-out Shadows Of The Dying Sun deluxe CD box-set edition), and one track from OMNIUM GATHERUM, "Skyline" (which will appear on the band's new album due out February 2016). Featuring artwork by Olli-Pekka Lappalainen (who previously created designs for both bands), this tour exclusive 7" is limited to 500 copies and available at all shows while supplies last. See below the track-listing:

INSOMNIUM / OMNIUM GATHERUM split "double A-side" 7" (black vinyl; limited to 500 copies)
Side A
1. Out To The Sea (INSOMNIUM)
Side A
1. Skyline (OMNIUM GATHERUM)

INSOMNIUM will be touring in support of their recently released new album, Shadows Of The Dying Sun. Born out of the melancholy, sorrow and dreariness of long winter nights, their 6th full-length is even more intense and dynamic than its predecessor (2011's acclaimed masterpiece, One For Sorrow). With each new album, the quartet seems to bring their songwriting craftsmanship closer to perfection; Shadows Of The Dying Sun is irrefutably "...melodic death metal done right" (METAL INJECTION.net).

For a preview of Shadows Of The Dying Sun, be sure to check out the following previously released singles:
