Coming January, Dutch symphonic metal titans EPICA will return to North America for their rescheduled Enigma tour. This trek will have Portuguese metallers MOONSPELL as special guest and STARKILL as the opener.
EPICA front-woman Simone Simons says the following about the upcoming tour: “We were really disappointed when we were forced to drop our tour with ELUVEITIE because of my father’s life threatening accident. Luckily, my father is doing much better at the moment and it is time to return to North America to finish what we started. Unfortunately due to recording commitments, we are only able to reschedule part of the tour. We’ll try to catch up on those missing shows as soon as possible and with a new album in our pocket! We can’t wait to be back in North America together with our friends from MOONSPELL. See you at one of the shows.”
The band will tour in support of their latest album The Quantum Enigma which charted worldwide.Watch EPICA’s video for “Victims of Contingency” on the Nuclear Blast YouTube channel: https://goo.gl/geQugJ
