Norwegian black metallers Dimmu Borgir and Finnish melodic progsters Amorphis have announced a 2020 co-headline tour.
The two bands will be joined by Wolves In The Throne Room for the January and February run next year, kicking off at London's O2 Kentish Town Forum, and finishing up in Hannover, Germany.
"We're going to crush Europe in January next year, and together with Amorphis, we'll make sure that Nordic darkness will create a perfect winter's storm," say Dimmu Borgir. "See you all soon!"
"When the idea of doing a co-headline tour with Dimmu Borgir came up, it sounded great, but at the same time we were really surprised," adds Amorphis' Esa Holopainen. "However, the more we thought about it, the more it sounded like a perfect match. Musically we are different, but deep down, it's not really by that much. There's a lot of similar elements where both bands take their inspiration. Both bands are absolutely unique on stage. It is needless to say that this tour is going to be a true killer with a massive production, that will undoubtedly bring even more coldness into people's hearts in January 2020. We would also like to welcome Wolves In The Throne Room to open the evenings."
"We are ready to blaze forth across Europe with these two titans of heavy metal!" continue Wolves… "Dimmu Borgir and Amorphis are bands that we love and we are looking forward to supporting them on this tour. We will be playing songs off our new album – released by Century Media in February – as well as some classic Wolves material. Thank you!"
