Looks like Friday is aiming to be better at announcing tours since they are not only broadcasting something awesome from the Power Metal gods in Hammerfall, but they are doing this one full year in advance. Let’s take a look at the press release down below. I’ll close out with some editorial as well.

The Press Release:
Legendary Swedish metal masters HAMMERFALL are currently traversing North America along with Sabaton on their massive sold out tour, touring in support of their globally dominating latest album Dominion.

Now, HAMMERFALL are pleased to announce a 2020 North American Headline tour, also in support of Dominion. The tour starts September 14, 2020 in West Palm Beach, FL and runs through October 19, 2020 in Silver Spring, MD. Support will come from Beast in Black and Edge of Paradise. A complete list of dates can be found below. Tickets go on sale tomorrow, October 26. VIP tickets will be available at http://www.enterthevault.com

“After the amazing times and reception we have gotten and are still experiencing on tour with Sabaton, we can’t wait to return to North America in 2020. For the past three years we have toured the continent frequently and every time, you showed us that heavy metal is still alive and kicking. So, polish your studs and get ready for the hammer to fall harder than it ever did before,” says vocalist Joacim Cans.

Guitarist Oscar Dronjak adds, “The last three tours have proven to us that North America is ready and willing to once again wield the hammers of Heavy Metal, and it is with great pleasure we announce that we will return to the continent for the fourth time in as many years.”

PiercingMetal Thoughts: This is some really great news because Hammerfall is a band that really brings their A game to the table when they perform. I saw them recently at a place called The Brooklyn Bazaar which will be closed for good by the time that this show happens. In 2020 the Gramercy Theatre will likely be a place that many of the Metal Legions will be going to a few times a week since the Playstation Theater will also be gone and nothing has filled the Times Square void of B.B, King Blues Club yet either. Now let’s discuss the supporting acts. I love everything that I have seen and heard from the band Beast In Black but they have yet to perform in my Metal metropolis. The same can be said for the talented folks of Edge Of Paradise who have not managed to be over on this side of the states more than once unless my math is messed up. I am a fan of their sound for years now and think that a lot of you will enjoy them as well. That’s all I have to say on this stuff my friends so I will close up and let you share your own thoughts. See you next time.
