Following a successful North American run of dates on the Blackest Of The Black tour alongside Danzig and Possessed (among many others) as well as a march through Asia to close 2010, Swedish black metal battalion MARDUK are set to return to the U.S. for another round of live performances! The evil will commence on May 27 at the Maryland Deathfest in Baltimore and run through a week's worth of dates, closing on June 3 at the Williamsburg Music Hall in Brooklyn, New York. Support will be provided by Aura Noir, Black Anvil, Panzerfaust and HOD.
Commented guitarist Morgan Håkansson of the latest round of dates: "Seven cities, seven shows,seven bowels of wrath to be unleashed upon mankind! It is with great delight I can announce that MARDUK return to the U.S. and Canada for a handful of select appearances. The calm before the storm!"
