1349 To Return to North America in October

Spread the metal:

Norway’s 1349 will bring it’s sonic plague back to North America in October for a co-headline tour with Triptykon, entitled, “Weltenbrand World Tour.” Chicago’s Yakuza will also  appear on the bill. This will be their second trek on this side of the Atlantic in support of their album, “Demonoir,” which was released in April on Prosthetic Records in North America.

The band released the following statement: “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 U.S. 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.”

Limited edition picture discs of “Demonoir” are still available through the Prosthetic Web-store. (store.prostheticrecords.com/index.php/vinyl/1349-demonoir-pic-lp.html)
