Swiss masters of death-infused folk-metal ELUVEITIE have announced their return to North America for a month-long co-headline “Wanderers Towards Rebirth (Kulkija ad Agtegnatos) Tour” with KORPIKLAANI in support of their newly released, critically praised record Ategnatos. The bands will be accompanied on the tour by GONE IN APRIL. Tickets are onsale now at www.eluveitie.ch/.

ELUVEITIE have also revealed a new performance/lyric video for their latest single, “The Slumber,” which can be viewed now at youtu.be/_r6ikITRKXM.

Chrigel Glanzmann (ELUVEITIE) says of the tour: “Hard to find words here and to express our excitement. First of all it’s been incredibly long this tour is overdue! We cannot wait to finally come back to North America! Secondly, we have our brand new album ATEGNATOS under our belts, plus we’ve finally released the much-anticipated second part of our purely acoustic ‘Evocation’ cycle since we’ve been to North America the last time. And so we cannot wait to share all the new songs with you! And last but not least it feels simply great to once again tour with our very dear friends and fellow road warriors of Korpiklaani! Long story short: We’re super excited and very much looking forward to soon tour in the USA and Canada again! See you all soon!”

Jonne (KORPIKLAANI) adds, “We are very much looking forward to the second North American leg of our Kulkija world tour. This time it will be a co-headlining tour with the Switzerland’s own Eluveitie. First half of the North American tour at the end of the last year was a great success, so it is only natural that we will return there this soon.This will be our seventh North American tour, and we’ve played over 1000 shows around the world since 2003. Yet this still feels like we’ve only begun and have just now got the wheels properly rolling. However, before North America we still have a tour in Australia and New Zealand in May and of course a busy summer raising our pints around the various festivals in Europe.”

KORPIKLAANI are currently touring in support of their latest studio album Kulkija. To celebrate, the band released a special tour edition, which includes the Beer Beer CD, featuring 14 different versions of the eponymous track. Taken from this CD is also “Bier Bier,” sung by TANKARD‘s Gerre, who even wrote the lyrics for the adaption.Watch the lyric video for the German “Beer Beer” version here: /www.youtube.com/watch?v=LfxfnAm7PK8

Recordings of Ategnatos took place in their beloved New Sound Studio with their engineer of choice Tommy Vetterli. “Yet it was radically different as we only had four weeks to record this time around – as compared to the eight weeks we had for Origins.” By taking mixing duties to the skilled hand of renowned studio wizard Jens Bogren in his Fascination Street Studios in Örebro, Sweden, ELUVEITIE returned to the very spot where they mixed their now legendary Slania album more than ten years ago.

With Ategnatos, the dedicated nine-piece not only worked with a real string quartet (a premiere!) and granted Fabienne Erni’s sublime mastery of the harp the room it deserved; they also undertook a holistic upgrade resulting in some of the most catchy, most aggressive or most epic tunes the Swiss Metal nobility has ever offered.

Jonas Wolf | guitars
Matteo Sisti | whistles, bagpipes, mandola, bodhran
Nicole Ansperger | fiddle
Alain Ackermann | drums
Chrigel Glanzmann | vocals, whistles, mandola, bagpipes
