Dutch symphonic metal stars EPICA and German heavy metal giants POWERWOLF are teaming up for a European tour in early 2017. This impressive co-headline tour comes in support of the highly awaited new EPICA album, »The Holographic Principle«, which is scheduled for a September 30th, 2016 release and POWERWOLFs spectacular DVD, »The Metal Mass Live«, which will be released on July 29th, 2016. EPICA frontwoman Simone Simons commented: "Woohoow, this autumn we're releasing our 7th studio album and the band have exciting times coming up! A new album means a new EPICA chapter and obviously a new world tour. Early 2017 we'll join forces with our German friends in POWERWOLF and together we'll storm stages all over Europe. If you want to hear our brand-new songs come to live, if you want to see our brand-new visuals and if you simply want to have a good time with us, we expect you on our biggest tour to date! I really can't wait to be back on the road again and to see the music, the energy and our lovely fans become one. Until then!" Matthew Greywolf of POWERWOLF adds: "In early 2017 we will embark on a special tour, sharing stages throughout Europe with the amazing EPICA. Those shows will become POWERWOLFs biggest indoor metal masses to date. Be prepared for an amazing stage set and crazy nights full of metal madness!"
