Portuguese metallers MOONSPELL are preparing to embark on their first North Amercan headlining tour in five years. Supporting MOONSPELL on the appropriately labeled "Nocturnal Mourning" tour are KATATONIA and DAYLIGHT DIES.

This is the first American tour for MOONSPELL in support of "Memorial", the band's latest release. This time around fans can expect "better and bigger production," stated vocalist Fernando Ribeiro.
