Tyr and Alestorm to tour North America in 2009

Tyr Today, Napalm Records announces the first batch of confirmed dates/venues for the forthcoming "Pagan Knights" tour, featuring Faroese Viking metallers TYR and Scottish pirate metallers ALESTORM. Since the 2006 Napalm re-release of the band's Eric the Red, TYR have continued to amaze an ever-growing legion of fans with their epic and progressive brand of pagan metal, culminating in this year's highly-anticipated Land, which also saw the band reach North American shores earlier this year for the inaugural "Paganfest" tour. ALESTORM have gained notoriety much through the "word of mouth" route: their debut album, Captain Morgan's Revenge, was released quietly at the beginning of the year but continued to build momentum, so much so that the band's patented "True Scottish Pirate Metal" simply HAD to be heard live on these shores. Joining both TYR and ALESTORM will be SPV recording artists Suidakra. The confirmed dates/venues so far:
