Holy frigging Hell, has this been a few perilous weeks or what? I don’t know about you readers but I have been a bundle of nerves based on this Coronavirus Pandemic and really cannot wait until things are in as normal a state as is possible. Now I’ve been diligently updating my own Events Calendar along with keeping you all as informed as is possible to do. With so many cancellations over the last few weeks its a sigh of relief to share the rescheduling news and the latest comes from our Finnish friends in Swallow The Sun who will make sure that our Metal Month of March comes in like some Doomish Lion. Here is the update and revised dates.
The Press Release:
As we are aware of the global pandemic and current situation, we have rescheduled our North American headlining tour for next year beginning in March-April 2021. We knew this would be a possibility, but we wanted to wait it out until things were certain and for all of us in the music industry, it has come to this, unfortunately. We look forward to seeing you all soon and can only hope to get back to doing what we love.

Continuing on with the sharing of news while under house arrest or self-quarantine as its officially titled, comes the news from Infected Rain. You might remember some weeks ago when everything was “normal”, that Nuclear Blast Records artists Eluveitie had announced a US Tour for the Fall. That was discussed HERE before the world went haywire amid the growing Coronavirus Pandemic. The outbreak caused a number of postponements and cancellations of tours like the one for Insomnium (announced HERE). Now, despite the still growing threat of this deadly virus we are finding bands announce new tours and partnerships and not only will Insomnium join Eluveitie as a co-headliner but Moldava’s Infected Rain will provide support on all dates. Check it out.
