After successfully headlining the North American “PaganFest” tour last spring, battle metal bad-asses Turisas will once again return to the States in 2013 to kick your teeth in.
Supporting them on the trek (the dates for which you can find at the end of this post) will be Firewind — whose overall appeal is completely lost on my feeble brain — and Stolen Babies.
“Back to America straight out of the studio,” the band says. “We’ve spent the last six months off the road writing some new killer tunes and are just about to start recording them as we speak. The great memories from our previous tour last spring is making us even more excited to hit the road again after this long break.
“We’re coming up with new cool and crazy ideas for this tour, and who knows, maybe we’ll even try out and premiere some completely unreleased new material,” says the band. “One thing is certain, after 9 months off the road there’ll be some serious energy to be released on stage! Serve us your weakest piss-light beer! We’ll take it! America here we come!”
