Polish extreme metal greats Behemoth have announced their ‘Ecclesia Diabolica America 2018 e.v.’ tour, featuring direct support from At The Gates and opening support from Wolves In The Throne Room.
Regarding the upcoming run, Behemoth leadman Nergal comments:
I hereby announce Behemoth’s triumphant return to the North American shores this Fall. We will be in the noble company of At The Gates and Wolves In The Throne Room, who will be supporting us on our 11th opus. Even though it’s only been a few moments since we played for you, our American legions, we cannot wait for this tour to start! It’s gonna be the first headlining run supporting new music and we are bringing all the artillery, which means the biggest production thus far! ‘Ecclesia Diabolica America 2018 e.v.’ arrives soon and we WANT you to celebrate this sonic pandemonium with us!
At The Gates mainman Tomas Lindberg adds:
At The Gates have not done a support tour since 1996. When we got invited to this tour, we immediately saw the logic to the package. This is three bands with their own unique sound, three bands totally dedicated to finding the core of their art. Three important bands. It all made sense to us, and we are flattered to be part of this. I truly believe that this is THE ONE tour not to miss this year. Get ready to drink from the night itself together with us.
New York City’s PlayStation Theater will host the trek on November 3 [TIX on 7/20]. All newly announced dates are listed below.
In more news, Behemoth recently wrapped up production on their 11th full-length album, the follow-up to 2014’s The Satanist, which drops this fall via Metal Blade / Nuclear Blast.
In addition, Behemoth recently concluded a string of tour dates with Slayer, Lamb of God, and Anthrax; with Napalm Death having replaced the band for the remaining of the tour. The run comes through UNY and LI soon, get dates.
At The Gates and Wolves In The Throne Room are touring in support of their latest releases, To Drink from the Night Itself on Century Media and Thrice Woven on Artemisia Records, respectively.
