Finnish Folk Metal superstars KORPIKLAANI are proud to announce their North American ‘Wanderers Towards Rebirth (Kulkija ad Ategnatos)’ co-headlining tour with label mates Swiss masters of Death-infused Folk-Metal, ELUVEITIE. The 24-date trek will kick off at The Orpheum in Tampa, FL on September 19th and will make stops in Dallas, Seattle and Montreal before concluding in New York on October 14th. Joining the bands on tour is GONE IN APRIL. Check the confirmed dates below.

Jonne states:

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 below.

Chrigel Glanzmann states:

“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!"

ELUVEITIE are touring in support of their latest album, “Ategnatos”. The band has revealed a new performance/lyric video for their latest single, “The Slumber”, which can be viewed below.
