A few months ago, Swiss metal legends ELUVEITIE announced their terrific return to the stages of European venues together with their Finnish partners in crime AMORPHIS - today, both bands can even announce that no less than Gothenburg, Sweden's melodic death metal pioneers DARK TRANQUILLITY and German melodic death/doom outfit NAILED TO OBSCURITY will be accompanying them as special guests in November/December. While formers have already been haunting the clubs of the continent in support of their current "pandemic" offering »Moment« (2020) with Finnish folk metallers ENSIFERUM in April/May 2022, latters are working on their fifth full-length whose first appetizer was released in the form of new single, 'Liquid Mourning' in January. That's why fans shouldn't only be excited to witness strong performances but especially to hear new material from all four bands. More than enough reasons to not miss out on these shows: so what have you been waiting for? Get your tickets NOW! The final itinerary can be found below.
Founding member Chrigel Glanzmann comments on the upcoming tour:
"It hasn't exactly become lighter in this world lately. Nonetheless there are still pleasant and joyful news. We cannot wait to finally start touring again after more than two really weird years. It feels unreal almost!
As if this isn't enough we're super stoked to announce the line-up of this tour - definitely one of the coolest tour line-up's in our entire career. Being on the road together with dear friends and some of our personal all-time favorite bands - that's really just more than I expected! We can't wait to see you all again!"
AMORPHIS guitarist Tomi Koivusaari adds:
"We are happy to announce our remaining shows of the European tour with Eluveitie. Both bands have shared same stages on festivals in the past and it’s a great pleasure to share a whole tour together. Chrigel Glanzmann has played Amorphis’ Under The Red Cloud and Queen Of Time albums so the musical bondage is absolutely perfect.
After our friends from Dark Tranquillity and Nailed To Obscurity were confirmed for this tour it’s needless to say that this line-up is beyond epic. Get yer tickets folks!”
DARK TRANQUILLITY singer Mikael Stanne comments:
"We are super excited to announce that we will be going out on the road together with our friends Amorphis, Eluveitie and Nailed To Obscurity this winter. To tour such an amazing package will be the perfect cure for the winter blues. You will not want to miss this! See you out there!”
NAILED TO OBSCURITY states:
"After already having played shows in the U.S. but also a few gigs in Europe earlier this year, we're hungrier than ever to get back on the road as soon as possible. We're super stoked that we'll even get the chance to return to European stages in the same year now - and what a hell of a line-up that is! We are honored to be a part of this and can't wait to meet all the amazing people and friends from the other bands and crews and everyone out there who is going to come to enjoy this fantastic touring package. See you all soon!"
