NEWS: Amorphis, Dark Tranquillity To Co-Headline North America Tour

Amorphis may not have dropped details on their album yet, but that didn’t stop them from planning a whole North American tour in support of it ahead of time! I have to admit, I like that they think that far ahead. Anyway! The Finnish prog metal band will be joined by Swedish melodeath extraordinaires Dark Tranquillity who are co-headlining with support from Portugal’s Moonspell and fellow Finlanders Omnium Gatherum! The tour starts in September and weaves in and out of Canada a couple times as they cover as much of the continent as possible.

Amorphis guitarist Esa Holopainen had this to say in regards to this news:

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

Indeed! Notice how he said they were excited to start the ‘world tour‘, heavily implying that there will of course be Amorphis love spreading to other areas of the world soon as well. Holopainen didn’t leave us completely hanging when it came to an album update. He did say that the band has finished recording for it, Jens Bogren is once again the producer and there’s a tentative release window of the month of May. That’s soon!
