Here’s the official statement:
North America’s premier heavy metal magazine is launching the maiden edition of its annual earth-scorching tour this April. The inaugural Decibel Magazine Tour will feature not just the long-awaited stateside return of Polish Behemoth, Swedish black metal provocateurs Watain, the Devil’s Blood and In Solitude.
Beginning in April and laying waste through a gargantuan 26-date run, the Decibel Magazine Tour (presented by Metal Blade Records, IndieMerchStore.com, FYE, ESP Guitars and Good Fight Entertainment) not only offers four diverse European artists hand-picked by the magazine, but doubles as Behemoth’s first U.S. tour since vocalist/guitarist Adam “Nergal” Darski’s well-documented battle with-and triumph over-leukemia.
“Considering the fact that we’ll be sharing the stage with the most evil and uncompromising bands around-Watain, the Devil’s Blood and In Solitude-this already makes it a legendary bill that you can’t miss out on!” promises Nergal. “Watch out. We won’t show up-we will ARRIVE with all the strength and might!”
More details, including tour dates, venues and ticket info will be announced at www.decibelmagazinetour.com on January 24th. Every ticket purchased through Top Spin will come with a commemorative laminate, and all fans that purchase their ticket through Top Spin will be entered to win an ESP Guitar.
