I’ve been a fan of this band from the very first note of the album “Slania” that feels like it had come out so very long ago and can honestly say to the fans out there that each and every concert that this band does is more exciting than the last. That makes me super psyched to share the news that Eluveitie is once again heading our way with a sure to be bang up tour for their newest album “Origins”. They’ll be bringing along both Tyr and Metsatoll as well who are worthy of honors themselves. Check out the full press release and dates along with the poster below and then I will return with some closing opinion on the matter.
Swiss folk-metal pioneers, ELUVEITIE, will return to North America once again for a headlining tour this Fall! The band will be touring in support of their highly-anticipated follow-up to Helvetios (2012), with the release of their new album, Origins, this August.
“In September, 2013, our massive Helvetios world tour came to a well-deserved end. After just over 200 shows, spread over 3 continents and including over 30 countries, it was time begin work on a new album,” comments drummer Merlin Sutter. “Now that we’re finally holding Origins in our hands, we can’t wait to share it with you – and what better way to do so than with a tour! We are extremely excited to kick off our new tour in North America this time, and you can expect us to make every single night one to remember. We’ll bring along some of the most exciting new ELUVEITIE music yet, as well as a hand-picked line-up featuring our friends from the Faroe Islands, the magnificent TYR, and the excellent Metsatöll from Estonia. See you this Fall!”
