AMON AMARTH – To Return To North America This Fall With Sabaton And Skeletonwitch
Critically acclaimed, Billboard-charting metal unit, AMON AMARTH, will be reconquering North America this Fall. This time around, the band will bring fellow Swedes, Sabaton, along for the ride. Additionally, Skeletonwitch will once again be opening the show, with the exception of New York City where fans will be treated to the first-ever North American performance from extreme metal supergroup, Vallenfyre as part of the Decibel Magazine 10th anniversary celebrations (which will include additional news and events to be announced soon).
In February of this year, AMON AMARTH devotees in Los Angeles witnessed the exclusive appearance of the band’s epic Viking ship stage setup. For this tour, New York enthusiasts will take in the Viking ship spectacle at the Best Buy Theatre on October 18th. Tickets will go on sale on May 30th. Keep an eye on amonamarth.com/tour for details.
Comments the band of the upcoming trek: “Yes, we are coming back to North America, and this time we’re doing Canada and the US together with our friends in Sabaton and Skeletonwitch! We can also announce that we’ll be bringing the Viking ship to the show in New York City! So get ready North America, this time we’ll take no prisoners!”
AMON AMARTH’s latest full-length, Deceiver Of The Gods, was released in June of 2013. The album debuted at #19 on the Billboard Top 200 chart, making it the band’s highest-charting album to date. Check out music as well as the epic video for “Father Of The Wolf” at THIS LOCATION.
