Faroese-based folk metal band TYR have announced a headlining North American tour for this spring, featuring support from Orphaned Land, Ghost Ship Octavius, and Aeternam.

TYR founding frontman Heri Joensen states: “It’s been way too long since we visited Vinland, and we’re hellbent on having a blast of a time on this trip!”

The adventure kicks off in Brooklyn at Knitting Factory on May 5 [TIX go on sale on 3/30] and hits 18 more U.S. and Canadian markets before coming to an end in Atlanta, Georgia.
