Swedish metal kings, AMON AMARTH, today confirm the details of their North American headlining tour this Spring. Set to run from April 7th through May 21st, the epic trek will find the band joined by fellow Swedes Entombed A.D and young USA metal upstarts Exmortus! Presale tickets are available now at ;AmonAmarth.com. Tickets go on sale on Friday, January 29th at 10AM local time at ;?AmonAmarth.com.
The tour will follow the release of AMON AMARTH’s tenth studio album, Jomsviking, set for unveiling in North America via Metal Blade Records on March 25th. Jomsviking – the band’s first concept record in their storied career – tells a tragic tale of love and revenge, backed by the Swedes’ trademark melodic, anthemic metal, which was produced and mixed once again by Andy Sneap (Megadeth, Testament, Accept) and also features special guest session drummer Tobias Gustafsson (Vomitory). The epic original story is set in the world of the Jomsvikings, the legendary order of mercenary Vikings.
By far their most ambitious project to date, Jomsviking is available for preorder in various formats now at AmonAmarth.com where fans can also view the video for the album’s first single, “First Kill.” Produced by Grupa 13 and directed by Darek Szermanowicz (Behemoth), “First Kill” was filmed in Gohrweide, Germany and Warsaw, Poland and features a cinematic depiction of the violent, brutal lyrics, along with powerful live footage of the band performing with their full dragon head and pyro stage-set.
Johan Hegg will be spinning “First Kill” and his own playlist at two public appearances in New York City and Los Angeles: the NYC event will be held at Saint Vitus Bar in Brooklyn on February 2nd at 9:00PM, while the LA event will be held at Grill ‘Em All in Alhambra on February 9th at 5:00PM.
