AMON AMARTH Frontman Checks In From Denver

AMON AMARTH frontman Johan Hegg has posted the following tour update at the group's official web site:

"Today [Friday, Nov. 18] we've reached Denver, Colorado, and the Gothic Theatre. So far the tour has been great, and it's been really cool to see all of you fans, and to feel your support. Thank you all!

"On another note, it has come to our attention that a lot of our fans miss our set on this tour due to us being the opening act, that we have a limited set time and that the venues sometimes don't let people in fast enough. One of the worst examples is the show at the House Of Blues in Chicago, where a lot of people missed our set completely due to exaggerated security messures and a strict cerfew. It's completely fucked up that people who are at the venue way before doors open can't get in on time to see all the bands. Unfortunately this is totally out of our control, and nothing we can do anything about.

"Let me just clarify that in no way is this the blame of anyone on this tour, band or crew, but rather a local venue problem. We're truly sorry that this is the case, but hope that we will see all of you again when we come back to the U.S. in the future."

AMON AMARTH are currently touring North American with CHILDREN OF BODOM and TRIVIUM in support of their latest album, "Fate of Norns", available on Metal Blade Records.
