King Diamond - 2014 North American Tour - promo flyer - #440138

KING DIAMOND would like to welcome Jess And The Ancient Ones as the opening act for the North American tour this Fall.

Jess And The Ancient Ones, personally selected by KING DIAMOND himself to be the openers on the trek, is an occult rock band from Kuopio, Finland. This seven-headed entity was given birth by Thomas Corpse and Thomas Fiend, its purpose being the exploration of magical realms beyond the mundane. The band’s lyrical concept is based upon the personal occult experiences of the writers, which combined with music, creates a strong mystical atmosphere. With the vocal talent, Jess, as their frontwoman and three guitars in the lineup, JATAO draw inspiration from Heavy Metal and Rock groups of the classic era, such as Mercyful Fate, Roky Erickson, Iron Maiden and Abba.

Watch their latest video for “Astral Sabbat” on YouTube HERE. For more information, visit their official website at THIS LOCATION.

In other news, the Atlanta, New York, Chicago, San Francisco, and Los Angeles shows on the tour are SOLD OUT! Additionally, only a handful of tickets remain for the Seattle date. Get your tickets now before they are gone!
