“We are really looking forward to getting back on the road for our headline shows in the U.S. and Canada, along with great support acts DELAIN and EKLIPSE. This tour will be something very special," says KAMELOT's Thomas Youngblood.
Said DELAIN's Charlotte Wessels: "It has been way too long since our last tour with our friends in KAMELOT! We're hugely looking forward to joining them on tour this fall, and we're hugely looking forward to meeting YOU on the road rocking the U.S.!"
In addition to DELAIN comes the German quartet EKLIPSE, whose unique style and musical approach rounds out a very diverse lineup.
For fans hoping to get a little more involved, the band will be offering up VIP packages at several of the tour stops. The VIP experience includes early entry to the show, a meet-and-greet with the band and an autographed commemorative poster.
KAMELOT's new album, "Silverthorn", which sold 5,400 copies in the United States in its first week of release to land at position No. 79 on The Billboard 200 chart. The band's previous CD, "Poetry For The Poisoned", opened with around 6,100 units in September 2010 to enter the chart at No. 74.
"Silverthorn" was released on October 30, 2012 in North America, October 26, 2012 in Germany and October 29, 2012 in the rest of Europe via Steamhammer/SPV. The CD marks the band's first release with Tommy Karevik, the Swedish vocalist who previously fronted SEVENTH WONDER (a group that he is still a member of).
Tommy first appeared as one of the guest singers on KAMELOT's very successful 2011 Pandemonium World Tour.
KAMELOT supported Finnish/Dutch symphonic metallers NIGHTWISH on their North American tour last summer.
