Israeli Metal Band ORPHANED LAND Announces European Tour With Palestinian Rock Band

Posted by on July 23, 2013 at 2:50 pm

If you do not think music cannot bring people together, think again. Israeli prog metal masters Orphaned Land have announced a 18-date European tour with Palestinian rock band Khalas, also known as the Arabic Rock Orchestra just as Israeli and Palestinian officials have agreed to meet for the first organized peace talks in half a decade.

Orphaned Land will share the stage and the same tour bus with Khalas for the three-week trek to support the release of their sixth full-length, All Is One, which was released last month via Century Media. At a concert in Tel Aviv last week, Orphaned Land vocalist Kobi Farhi explained:

"We can't change the world, but we can give an example of how coexistence is possible. Sharing a stage and sharing a bus is stronger than a thousand words. We'll show how two people from different backgrounds who live in a conflict zone can perform together."

This tour announcement comes during an interesting time given that media outlets have been going wild after U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry's recent announcement that Palestinian and Israeli officials could be traveling to Washington soon to begin peace talks after several years of not wanting to cooperate at all.

Khalas lead guitarist Abed Hathut seemed to agree with Farhi's sentiments, saying:

“We are metal brothers before everything. There is no bigger message for peace than through this tour.”
