Dutch symphonic heavyweights EPICA have announced a select number of exclusive shows in support of the 10th anniversary of their album "Design Your Universe". The disc holds a special place in the hearts of EPICA's fans and includes such fan favorites as "Kingdom Of Heaven" and "Design Your Universe".
To celebrate the 10th anniversary of "Design Your Universe", the band will return to a number of venues they played while touring on the album back in 2009-2010.
Singer Simone Simons comments: "After all those years, 'Design Your Universe' remains one of my all-time favorite EPICA albums. I know that the message behind the title song also resonates with a lot our fans because there are so many 'Design Your Universe'-related tattoos. The title track and 'Unleashed' are songs that I hold very dear and the memories we made in that time of our career. I am looking forward to go back in time with you all while we play more songs from our 'Design Your Universe' album."
Guitarist Mark Jansen adds: "'Design Your Universe' is very dear to me. It's an album that was written during a very inspiring time. The title track shows us that we can we all create our destiny and it's still one of my favorite tracks to play live. Also, quite a few other songs of the album deserve to be played again, and we will! Our set is gonna be filled with 'Design Your Universe' songs, so don't miss one of these opportunities."
