HammerFall has announced their fall tour “European Outbreak 2011” and will bring the metal legends RIOT (Us), the new hardrock sensation AMARANTHE (s) and hyped newcomers DeathDestruction (s) on tour. The tour will prove the position HammerFall built over the past 15 years. They’re now preparing to put on a sensational live show for the “European Outbreak 2011” Tour that will blow off at the start October 26th in Copenhagen.
RIOT’s founder member Mark Reale comments: “This tour is going to blow a lot of cobwebs away. We’ve been dying to get the band back over the Europe where we’ve always had such a loyal following. This is like a dream come true for all of us, and the timing, with the new album ready to roll, couldn’t be better.”
This will be the first time the legendary ‘Thundersteel’ and ‘The Privilege Of Power’ line-up of Tony Moore (vocals), Mark Reale (guitar), Mike Flyntz (guitar), Don Van Stavern (bass) and Bobby Jarzombek (drums) has played in Europe on a full tour, after the band’s celebrated one-off show at Sweden rock festival in 2009. Having signed with SPV worldwide except for Japan where they are signed to Avalon Marquee, RIOT are currently finalizing their new album Immortal Soul which is due in October. The dates with Hammerfall will therefore also be an opportunity for fans to hear new material from the band’s upcoming – and long-awaited – fourteenth album.
Sweden’s AMARANTHE have gone from zero to a sensation in the metal world in just months time; supporting KAMELOT on tour in Europe right after the release of their debut album, playing Japan several times in 2011, including the mighty LOUDPARK festival and charting high on several national album charts, AMARANTHE could make even seasoned metal veterans green with envy.
Sporting a line-up spearheaded by a unique combination of three singers, AMARANTHE are instantly recognizable both in recording and at one of their spectacular live shows. The music fuses the most cutting edge of melodic metal with immediate and catchy choruses that will leave you humming for days. AMARANTHE will finish up their hugely successful debuting year with a massive tour with Gothenburg metal legends HAMMERFALL. A Special Edition rerelease of their debut album is also scheduled for fall 2011, which will feature heaps of bonus content, including new songs, tour documentaries, behind the scenes footage and much more!
Olof Mörck, founder of Amaranthe comments: “All of us in Amaranthe are mighty proud to go tour with our metal brothers from Gothenburg, the legendary HammerFall! To take part on this huge tour that will take us to every corner in Europe is sure to be a pleasure, and we hope their fans will receive us kindly! We are sure to do our best to deliver as good of a show as possible, every single night from October through November! See all of you on tour this fall!” Website: http://www.myspace.com/amaranthemetal
