Watain: announces North American headlining tour with IN SOLITUDE, TRIBULATION
Watain:  announces North American headlining tour with IN SOLITUDE, TRIBULATION
With the release of their forthcoming full-length, The Wild Hunt, drawing near, Swedish black metallers WATAIN are now ready to announce their first North American tour in support of the album. Featuring IN SOLITUDE and TRIBULATION as support, this month-long headlining trek (aptly named "The Wild Hunt North America") showcases some of Sweden's finest metal from coast to coast. See below for all upcoming dates.

WATAIN comments: "Starting the first full tour for 'The Wild Hunt' in North America seems quite appropriate, considering how many severe experiences and sleepless nights that country has bestowed upon us while riding through its strange wilderness...A thousand years and a thousand deaths have passed since we last visited the States, so prepare yourself to face something very, very old and very, very hungry. Deformed from both victory and defeat, distorted by a constant influx of powers residing beyond the borders of this world, we now return to join forces with our ever loyal US supporters. With us we will have two acts that have the capacity of transforming the audience into one big open wound before we go on stage, ready then to receive the lethal yet illuminating venom of WATAIN."

Due out August 20th in North America, The Wild Hunt is a sonic and lyrical tour-de-force that explores WATAIN's roots, such as BATHORY and DISSECTION, while also remaining truly unique. Having lost none of their integrity, WATAIN continues to push the boundaries of the scene with their fifth full-length, refusing to compromise their sound and vision. Amid the tracks teeming with the band's classic sound, The Wild Hunt also features clean vocals (a first for the trio!) which, as front-man Erik puts it, "...is just us being brutally personal and honest. It shows another important facet of the WATAIN world." As this new album will soon prove, WATAIN truly lives in a world all their own.
