RAISED FIST Issues Tour Update

Swedish rock heavyweights RAISED FIST will release their fifth album, "Veil Of Ignorance", on September 7 via Burning Heart Records. The CD was recorded at Dugout Productions in Uppsala, Sweden with producer Daniel Bergstrand (IN FLAMES, MESHUGGAH).

Commented the band: "It's now pretty much only a week or so till we drop our new album, 'Veil Of Ignorance'. Stay awake and look out for the first video, for 'Friends And Traitors', that will be up any day now.

"The dates for the record release differ from 7th to 9th of September depending in what area of the world you live in. The record will also be released on iTunes globally at the same time. Check your local stores!

"The touring will be kicking it off in Australia starting on the 10th of September. Going out with one of Australia's finest, CARPATHIAN. Only five shows in the major cities so get your tickets now.

"Back on European soil we will then do two finish shows in Helsinki and Mikkeli, supported by Denmark's PILGRIMZ. And about 10 days later we will give Sweden and Norway what they deserve. Four shows once again supported by PILGRIMZ and U.K.'s YOUR DEMISE.

"The European tour will kick off a few days later, on the 16th of October in Bochum, the heart of Europe. We're doing 16-17 shows ending the whole run in Athens. Touring with us are another one of Australia's new crazy punkers DEEZ NUTS and the superb hardcore act ENDWELL, straight out of New York.

"Last but not least, we are currently planning a USA tour. We will start off in South America then work our way up to Mexico, and then continue into Canada to once again hit the country of cold. 'Crisse de calisse de tabarnak!!' After Canada, we hit a couple of dates in the states (Los Angeles and New York with more cities to follow). Yeah, you read it right!

"Nothing more to say, only things to do! Se you all in the pit!"

Formed back in 1993, RAISED FIST is an established name within the heavy music scene. The band gained legendary status within the hardcore scene and became a well-respected name within the metal community.
