Amon Amarth Announces “Jomsviking 2017” Tour with Goatwhore

The Metal Month of May is going to get its crush on with the news that Amon Amarth will be returning to our shores to throttle us once more as a part of the “Jomsviking 2017” tour and they’ll be bringing along labelmates Goatwhore as well. The full press release I received today is below along with the poster and dates. I’ll return at the close with some additional thoughts.

The Press Release:
After touring the world this past year in support of their new album, Jomsviking, Amon Amarth will head back out on the road this spring for a USA tour with Goatwhore! Starting April 30th, the trek also features select appearances by Amon Amarth at some of the nation’s premier music festivals: “Welcome to Rockville”, “Carolina Rebellion”, “Dark Lord Day”, “Northern Invasion”, and “Rock on the Range”.

Amon Amarth comments: “United States! We return to your lands this Spring and we will raid and plunder your little cities as we please. For the first time we will be sailing our longships towards the curious native celebrations called ‘The Loudest Month’ (Welcome To Rockville, Northern Invasion, Carolina Rebellion & Rock On The Range) where we will sack and burn them to the ground and feast on the spoils. Our good friends in the almighty Goatwhore will be joining us on this voyage on all headline shows. You have been warned.”

Butcher Babies Will Join Megadeth On ‘Dystopia’ North American Tour

Hey there my dear readers, so it wasn’t too long ago that I was discussing the Megadeth tour with you right here on the website and since that time a few things have happened. The first and rather surprising news was that the band Havok was removed from the tour based on differences with the contract about the run of dates. That sucks since I feel Havok is one of the more exciting of the up and coming bands that is out there. The new news is that Butcher Babies is joining onto the tour so if you are a fan of the band this should make you a happy camper and if you’re not…….well. The press details about this are below so dig in. I’ll be back after it all.


The Press Release:
BUTCHER BABIES have announced that they will be hitting the road with the legendary Megadeth this Fall as part of the band’s Dystopia tour in North America. Also joining them will be Amon Amarth, Suicidal Tendencies, and Metal Church. The month long tour starts in Casper, WY on September 20 and concludes on October 16 in Camden, NJ. In addition to the tour, both Butcher Babies and Megadeth will be performing at this year’s “Ozzfest Meets Knotfest” event, which takes place on September 24 & 25 in San Bernardino, CA

Speak about their enthusiasm for the upcoming tour, Butcher Babies vocalist Heidi Shepherd states, “We’re incredibly honored to join forces with some of our idols, legendary musicians and bands! Megadeth is a staple in metal music and we can’t think of a better way to round out our 2016 touring schedule than with these metal gods. Who didn’t grow up with a Megadeth poster glued to your wall with dreams of dreams of sharing the stage with them. Bucket list… Check!”
