Amon Amarth & Sabaton announce massive North American tour (coming to NY)

Amon Amarth live at Irving Plaza earlier this year

Sabaton live at Best Buy Theater earlier this year

Melodic death metal heathens Amon Amarth will set out on a new North American headline tour this fall. The trek is in continued support of Amon Amarth‘s 2013 LP, Deceiver of the Gods. Direct support on the run will come from fellow Swedish power metallers Sabaton, who just recently unleashed their seventh studio album, Heroes. Rounding out the bill will be Ohio blackened-thrashers Skeletonwitch.

The six-week-long tour kicks off in September a continues through November. A stop at the Upstate Concert Hall in Albany, NY will go down on October 17. A show at Best Buy Theater in New York City has been set for October 18. The NYC show will not feature Skeletonwitch, but will be part of Decibel Magazine’s 10th anniversary bash and will also see a special set by British extreme metal supergroup Vallenfyre (Paradise Lost, Alehammer, At the Gates, My Dying Bride), who have never performed live on American soil. Tickets go on sale on Friday (5/30).

UPDATE: Skeletonwitch have just announced a special headline show at Brooklyn’s Saint Vitus the same night as the previously announced Best Buy Theater gig on 10/18, also as part of Decibel’s 10th anniversary celebration. Evoken and an unknown special guest will support. Tickets are on sale now.
