Finnish melancholic progressive metallers AMORPHIS will return to North America next March/April for a long-overdue headlining tour. Support on the trek will come from fellow Finns and melodic doom/death merchants SWALLOW THE SUN. AMORPHIS will also appear on select dates with thrash legends OVERKILL and Egyptian-themed technical death metal champions NILE.

"It's been a long time since we toured in North America and Canada," comments AMORPHIS guitarist Esa Holopainen. "To be honest, way too long and at some point we thought we might never be back. In show business, things are not that simple, and no matter how much AMORPHIS would like to tour, or play shows in different territories, usually it just doesn't make sense. Now it makes sense and we really wanted to make this to happen, after receiving so much positive feedback from U.S. fans.

"As it has been quite a while since the U.S. and Canadian fans have seen us, we will cover a lot of material from the latest AMORPHIS albums as well as play classics from 'Tales From The Thousand Lakes' and 'Elegy', which were groundbreaking albums to us and many fans.

"It's a great pleasure to have our country fellows SWALLOW THE SUN to join the tour as well. A great band. So there's plenty of Finnish melancholy on stage and not that many major chords are going to be played. Still we arrive with happy hearts and will rock across U.S. like never before."
