Hot off the press, Finland’s Amorphis, Sweden’s Dark Tranquillity, Portugal’s Moonspell and Finland’s Omnium Gatherum will be teaming up for a lengthy North American crusade this late summer / early fall.
Amorphis guitarist Esa Holopainen declares:
We are extremely excited to start the world tour with new album from North America. There’s been lot of requests to hit the states again after our last tour spring 2017. This time we come over with a killer package. Touring with DARK TRANQUILLITY, MOONSPELL and OMNIUM GATHERUM is almost like having a road trip with best mates around. Every band has a strong fanbase so there will be something for everyone.
The melo-death metal extravaganza launches in New York City at Gramercy Theatre on September 7 [TIX tba]. From there, the trip hits 30 additional major markets in the U.S. and Canada before returning to NY for the tour’s final stop at Clifton Park’s Upstate Concert Hall on October 14 [TIX tba].
Amorphis are returning stateside in support of their soon to be revealed new album, which was produced and mixed by Jens Bogren (Opeth, Amon Amarth, Katatonia).
Holopainen offered more info regarding the impending LP:
We just finished new album recordings with our producer Jens Bogren and result is very bombastic! Album release is tentatively this May and it’s a great privilege to introduce new songs first time for North American audience. AMORPHIS has long history behind so once again we try to offer something for everyone. Impossible but doable. Shine on, see you soon and support live music. That keeps our engines running!
Dark Tranquillity, Moonspell and Omnium Gatherum are touring in favor of their latest full-lengths, Atoma, 1755 and Grey Heavens, respectively.
