Consider the Source is getting ready to hit the road again, and they’ve just added a new run of dates for the fall. Their “Maxx Power Tour” will return to their fully electric format, following the hybrid acoustic/electric shows in support of their latest album, Hybrid Vol. 1: Such As A Mule.

“Maxx Power” kicks off November 4th and will head up and down the East Coast all the way from Maine to Georgia. The final date is scheduled for December 9th at the Pour House Music Hall in Raleigh, North Carolina.

Consider the Source also released a new cover to coincide with the announcement. The band, which carries the title for best Sci-fi Middle Eastern Fusion Prog Rock group, put their own spin on a song by one of their heavier influences.

“Opeth is one of the few bands who influenced the three of us individually during our adolescent years and later collectively as a group,” they explain. “They write extended compositions that are emotionally dark and brilliantly tie together sections of extreme heaviness with mellow acoustic passages. Their top-notch production, tight rhythms, and catchy melodies have become something we strive for in our own original music. We’ve wanted to cover one of their songs for a long time but couldn’t pick just one favorite. We hope you enjoy our interpretation of ‘Death Whispered A Lullaby’ with a couple of our favorite riffs added in at the end from ‘Closure’ and ‘Deliverance.’”

Bassist John Ferrara opens things up with pensive arpeggios before getting more aggressive in his approach.
