Music News: Epica Announce European Co-Headline Tour With Apocalyptica

This fall Dutch Symphonic titans Epica and Finnish Cello masters Apocalyptica will join forces for the ‘Epic Apocalypse Tour’. The tour comes in support of Epica’s upcoming album which will be released later this year. Support on all dates will be provided by Helsinki prog metallers Wheel.

Epica’s Simone Simons comments: “To celebrate the upcoming release of our long awaited 8th album, we are going to bring the ‘Epic Apocalypse Tour’ to Europe together with our friends from the mighty Apocalyptica. It’s a great new step as we’ll be playing some bigger venues which allows us to add some new exciting production to the show as well. We couldn’t be more excited to present our new songs and to finally tour with Apocalyptica. See you there!”

Apocalyptica’s Eicca Toppinen adds: “This is all about adventure, exploration and bringing the dynamic excitement of symphonic metal to yet more fans both old and new. Cell-0 is, for us, a return to our roots while exploring new artistic universes within that realm, and this tour will help our horizons expand even further. So come one, come all, because we are going to present a great night of entertainment”

    Owner/Editor/Writer/YouTuber - Heavy Metal and reading, two things I have always loved so they are the two areas you will find most of my reviews. Post apocalyptic is my jam and I always have a book on the go and have for decades now. From a metal perspective, age has softened my inadequacies and I now operate with an open mind, loving many bands from many sub genres but having a particular admiration for the UK underground scene. In my other time, when not focused on Dad duties and work, I try to support the craft beer movement by drinking as much of it as I can and you will also find me out on the streets, walking. I love walking, I love exploring new places and snapping nature photos as I go.
