It's been five years since Finnish metal band Wintersun touched down on North America, and fans have been waiting for their long awaited return. Fortunately, the band are slated to rock the country this fall in support of their recent album The Forest Seasons, which became the number one album in their home country and peaked at number two on the Heatseekers Albums chart in the United States. Joining the four core members on this trek is Asim Searah, who started touring with the band last year.
Their headlining tour, which begins on the east coast on Sept. 14, will include performances inside The Mayan in Los Angeles on Sept. 23, The Regency Ballroom in San Francisco on Sept. 24, the Gothic Theatre in Denver on Oct. 3, and the Majestic Theatre in Detroit on Oct. 7.
As support, the band will be touring with Australian group Ne Obliviscaris, who will be promoting their third studio album Urn, and praised guitarist Sarah Longfield, who will be plugging the re-release of her 2017 studio album Collapse // Expand.
Tickets for this tour go on sale to the general public tomorrow (June 8) at 10 a.m local time. Their full routing can be seen below.
