This October/November, Polish black/death overlords BEHEMOTH will hit the road across North America to headline the "Ecclesia Diabolica America 2018 e.v." tour. Featuring special guests AT THE GATES and WOLVES IN THE THRONE ROOM, this is one show not to be missed!
A special BLABBERMOUTH.NET presale will begin on Wednesday, July 18 at 10:00 a.m. local time and end on Thursday, July 19 at 10 p.m. local time. When prompted, type in the presale code "BLABBER" to access tickets before the general public.
BEHEMOTH singer, guitarist and mainman Nergal comments: "I hereby announce BEHEMOTH's triumphant return to the North American shores this fall. We will be in the noble company of AT THE GATES and WOLVES IN THE THRONE ROOM, who will be supporting us on our 11th opus.
"Even though it's only been a few moments since we played for you, our American legions, we cannot wait for this tour to start! It's gonna be the first headlining run supporting new music and we are bringing all the artillery, which means the biggest production thus far! 'Ecclesia Diabolica America 2018 e.v.' arrives soon and we want you to celebrate this sonic pandemonium with us!"
AT THE GATES frontman Tomas Lindberg adds: "AT THE GATES have not done a support tour since 1996. When we got invited to this tour, we immediately saw the logic to the package. This is three bands with their own unique sound, three bands totally dedicated to finding the core of their art. Three important bands. It all made sense to us, and we are flattered to be part of this. I truly believe that this is the one tour not to miss this year. Get ready to drink from the night itself together with us."

BEHEMOTH's long-awaited follow-up to 2014's "The Satanist" album is tentatively due before the end of the year. The new disc was mixed by Matt Hyde, who has previously worked with SLAYER and HATEBREED, among others.
Back in January, Nergal stated about what fans can expect from the band's next disc: "[2009's] 'Evangelion' was the most perfectly recorded and perfect sounding record, but then 'The Satanist' was something else. The new one is going to be something else once again, I'm sure about it. So when people tell me, 'You need to top 'The Satanist''… I don't need to top anything. I just want to make sure we take curves with our career. We're gonna take a different direction in order not to get stuck in the same pattern."
BEHEMOTH's latest release was the live DVD/Blu-ray "Messe Noire".
