Chosen by an official jury, Swiss Folk Metal band ELUVEITIE has been nominated for a Swiss Music Award in the category Best Live Act National, together with Genevan KADEBOSTANY and DSDS winner Luca Hänni. For the first time, fans were able to help – one of the three nominees has been voted into the finals via MBudget Wildcard. Here also ELUVEITIE made it into the final three acts (together with Luca Hänni and Bastian Baker). The good news has been spread live on Thursday, January 31, 2014 live at the show "Living Room" on JOIZ – with all nominees witnessing. You can place your vote here TILL SUNDAY (March 2nd): http://www.swissmusicawards.ch/de/#12-154 – also from outside of Switzerland. And the good news won’t end, as ELUVEITIE have announced their first Japanese tour for June. Aside from Tokyo (where the band will play three shows due to frequent request), this journey will lead them to Nagoya and Osaka. ELUVEITIE’s current record »Helvetios« was released on February 10, 2012 via Nuclear Blast and can be ordered here: http://shop.nuclearblast.com/en/shop/item/groups/51000.1.html?article_group_sort_type_handle=rank&custom_keywords=ELUVEITIE%20-%20Helvetios
