Up and coming metallers BEAST IN BLACK recently finished their first festival season, incl. appearances at well-known festivals such as Tuska Open Air (FIN), Norway Rock Festival (N), Nova Rock (A) and Sabaton Open Air (S) amongst others. The band with former BATTLE BEAST guitarist Anton Kabanen previously toured as support for RHAPSODY and BEYOND THE BLACK in support of their debut album »Berserker«, which was released on November 3rd, 2017 through Nuclear Blast Records. In addition, the group also played two own (sold out!) headline gigs in Finland as well as a number of Japanese shows with TURISAS amongst others. To round off their »Berserker« touring cycle worthily, BEAST IN BLACK will embark on another European trek supporting Finnish symphonic metal giants NIGHTWISH at the end of the year. But before the aforementioned journey starts, the quintet is pleased to announce great news for early 2019: BEAST IN BLACK will be touring as headliners in support of their upcoming, yet untitled sophomore record. Totalling 15 shows, the tour will guide the band through 6 different countries. Special guest will be Finnish electronic crossover band TURMION KÄTILÖT. Further details can be found below. Comments the band, "Finally, the time has come for us to announce something that we have waited so long for and most bands only dream of - our first European headline tour where we will present the second BEAST IN BLACK album. More details about our new release will follow very soon, stay tuned!" BEAST IN BLACK »European Tour 2019« w/ TURMION KÄTILÖT Presented by Metal Hammer (D), Rock It!
