Starting April 30th, the trek also features select appearances by Amon Amarth at some of the nation’s premier music festivals: “Welcome to Rockville”, “Carolina Rebellion”, “Dark Lord Day”, “Northern Invasion”, and “Rock on the Range”.
Amon Amarth comments: “United States! We return to your lands this Spring and we will raid and plunder your little cities as we please. For the first time we will be sailing our longships towards the curious native celebrations called ‘The Loudest Month’… where we will sack and burn them to the ground and feast on the spoils.
Our good friends in the almighty Goatwhore will be joining us on this voyage on all headline shows. You have been warned.”
Goatwhore‘s Ben Falgoust (vocals) adds: “We are looking forward to hitting the road with Amon Amarth and playing some raw as fuck metal for you people.
Show up with your anger and let’s make some chaos happen.
I know you all need to vent some issues. Let’s do it together and crush the opposition. I also hope by the end of this tour I can try to be as cool as Joe Grindo from Theories.”
As the band’s first concept record in their storied career, Jomsviking tells a tragic, original tale of conflict and revenge, backed by the Swedes’ trademark melodic, anthemic metal – which was produced and mixed once again by Andy Sneap (Megadeth, Testament, Accept).
For their efforts, Amon Amarth landed on the global charts this past year (including a #11 spot on the USA Current Album Billboard Chart!).
