EPICA, ELUVEITIE, THE AGONIST Join Forces For North American Tour; Tickets Now On Sale

This fall, Dutch symphonic metal titans EPICA and Swiss folk metallers ELUVEITIE will join forces to co-headline across North America. This trek, sponsored by Revolver magazine, also has Canada's THE AGONIST supporting on all dates.

EPICA frontwoman Simone Simons says the following about the upcoming tour: "We are ecstatic to finally return to North America. It is time to nurture our long-distance relationship with our fans over in North America. We'll have a wonderful time together and will perform songs spanning our entire discography. You guys better be ready for us."

This will mark EPICA's long-awaited return to North America after the band's tour with MACHINE HEAD in late 2014 got canceled. It will also be the group's first North American run in support of their latest album, "The Quantum Enigma", which hit the charts all over Europe and beyond.

ELUVEITIE's lead vocalist Chrigel Glanzmann states: "We're eight months into the 'Origins' world tour now and far from getting tired! We can't wait to finally return to the USA and Canada; especially because we'll return alongside the mighty EPICA! By Toutatis, this is gonna be fucking awesome!"
