Amaranthe talk touring with Within Temptation

Amaranthe, the modern metal sextet from Gothenburg, Sweden – have announced that they will be returning to North America in support of their new album.  The band will be providing direct support for Within Temptation.  The tour begins 9/25 in San Francsico, CA and runs through 10/11 in Worcester, MA.  Tickets for all shows go on sale tomorrow and a complete list of dates can be found below. Guitarist Olof Morck commented on the North American tour: \”We could not be more pleased to announce that we will be supporting Within Temptation on their North American tour this fall! I have loved Within Temptation\’s music for almost ten years, so it will be an honor to support them. But most of all, we can\’t wait to see our amazing American fans again, and make a bunch of new ones!\” The band has confirmed an autumn 2014 release date for their new studio album via Spinefarm Records; as yet untitled, this latest outing will be the follow-up to \’Amaranthe\’ (2011, now gold in Sweden) and \’The Nexus\’ (2013). These two releases, which defined the band\’s approach through their signature blend of musical styles and voices, caused an international stir right from the start; not only did \’The Nexus\’ top the rock chart in Sweden, but it went straight to # 1 on the US iTunes Metal Chart as well, whist the videos (from both albums) have continued to clock up millions of views (\’Hunger\’, from Album 1, is now at the 6 million-plus mark). The success of these records saw AMARANTHE  playing to audiences all over the world, and now – following shows across Europe, including an appearance at the Bandit Awards in Stockholm where one of the band\’s three singers, Elize Ryd, received the \’Rock n\’ Role Model\’ Award – the six will head back into the studio. AMARANTHE are currently on tour in Europe.  A complete list of dates and links to purchase tickets can be found HERE.
