After several sold-out shows last year on their inaugural North American co-headlining tour with ELUVEITIE, Finnish epic metallers WINTERSUN will return to our shores once again for a headlining tour this August/September sponsored by MetalSucks! The band is excited to announce the they will be playing a very special set, which will include a brand new song and the entire Time I and Wintersun albums. Joining them are Italian symphonic death metal champions FLESHGOD APOCALYPSE, melodic tech-death kings ARSIS and up-and-comers STARKILL.
Commented the band: “On the upcoming North American Tour we are exclusively going to play the new song ‘The Way Of The Fire‘ for you live!
We are very much looking forward to these special evenings with all of you, also in light of celebrating a part of the brand new album which will be out 2014. That´s our gift to you and truly something special. We cannot wait for you to hear the TIME II material!
Tickets are selling very fast in some cities. Get your tickets in time to make sure you will be part of this special and unique evening with WINTERSUN before it’s too late.”
