TRIPTYKON - featuring singer/guitarist Tom Gabriel Warrior, formerly of HELLHAMMER and CELTIC FROST - have announced dates for the Weltenbrand Tour 2010, their North American debut with 1349 and YAKUZA rounding out the bill. Dates are below.
Norwegian black metallers 1349 comment:
"2010 is a very special year for 1349. This is the year that saw the release of our pinnacle album DEMONOIR, into which we have channeled the darkest and fiercest contents of our souls and given it an aural form. As the album was released, the band was already on American soil doing the first tour of the touring cycle as main support for CANNIBAL CORPSE. We were obviously rather excited about how the songs would feel and sound live and thus of the crowd's reaction to the new material, but it turned out to work eminently. It felt fabulous! Furthermore, it became clear to us that we had to follow up what we had begun and go back to the States and play a headliner tour in the fall. This intent has turned into cold reality as we now embark on a co-headliner tour with Triptykon.
Many of you are familiar with 1349's bonds to the creative mastermind Tom G. Warrior, and for us it's like pieces of a puzzle that fall into place as we now go on tour with Triptykon on their first journey to the US. We talk about two mighty forces that here will be joined; in 1349 we see it as nothing short of a great achievement that we could make it happen. We can promise you that 1349 will feed off this great happening, and we boldly state that every show on this Weltenbrand tour will be a triumph! We look STRONGLY forward to share some truly magical moments with our American fans on this tour, and judging from the reception we got on our short-but-sweet tour with CC this spring (hails!), this is gonna be a hell of a ride.
To complete the line-up of this legendary 1349/Triptykon-tour, we have invited the splendid weirdos Yakuza as our special guests. 'Come Feel The Fire'...as OVERKILL would have said."
1349 new full length, Demonoir, was recorded at Studio Nyhagen, deep in the woods in Norway with Tom G. Warrior.
