Swiss new wave of folk metal pioneers ELUVEITIE and Finnish epic metallers WINTERSUN, will co-headline a North American tour this Winter! The trek will commemorate ELUVEITIE’s 10th anniversary as well as serve as WINTERSUN’s introduction to North American shores. This momentous event will also include the German pagan metal band VARG.

“We are very excited to tour US and Canada for the first time in November/December, ” commented WINTERSUN mstermind Jari  Mäenpää. “We´ve had lots of requests from the fans before, but finally we are able to come there and kick some ass with new material from the Time I album and of course play the old stuff too! Hope to see you guys there. Let´s make it special!”
