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.”
