HAMMERFALL Announce Special Guests And Support For Upcoming European Tour
September 27, 2016, 2 years ago
HammerFall will embark on another celebrated tour over Europe, beginning on January 12th, 2017 in Bremen, Germany. Now the band announce that special guests Gloryhammer will be joining HammerFall on their extensive European Tour, and the support will come from Lancer.
”We got exactly the support bands we wanted”, says guitarist Oscar Dronjak. ”There is no doubt in my mind that Lancer will be thoroughly enjoyed by all our fans, and Gloryhammer's mighty and epic music will be the perfect lead-in to the HammerFall show that will follow. The World Wide (r)Evolution was a resounding success on every level with half of the shows sold out, and we can’t wait to get back on stage again to have a gigantic heavy metal party every night with all our Templar friends!”

HammerFall have released a music video for “Hammer High”. The track is featured on the band’s new album, Built To Last, due for release on November 4th via Napalm Records. “Hammer High” is the next Instant Gratification track for all of you ordering via iTunes and is now available as a standalone single, available through all digital outlets.
Guitarist Oscar Dronjak previously stated: "Built To Last is our 10th studio album in 19 years, incredibly enough, but I think we sound more alive and vibrant than ever before! We have worked our asses off to make sure this album is a worthy successor to (r)Evolution, and I have no doubt in my mind that we have created one of the strongest records we have ever done. I am immensely proud and excited about this album, and I am confident all our Templars of Steel will agree once they hear it in November."
The album artwork, designed by Andreas Marschall, and tracklisting can be seen below.

HammerFall will embark another celebrated tour throughout Europe, beginning on January 12th, 2017 in Bremen, Germany.
Known for their energetic and engaging live shows, HammerFall have been masters of ground-breaking metal anthems since the start of their remarkable career. With an extensive world tour taking place over the past two years, the band is now gearing up for another run following the release of their yet untitled album.
“It’s been a hectic time juggling the remaining shows of the tour with song writing and, ultimately, recording, so the name of this venture feels very fitting”, says guitarist Oscar Dronjak. “The World Wide (r)Evolution was a resounding success on every level with half of the shows sold out, and we can’t wait to get back on stage again to have a gigantic heavy metal party every night with all our Templar friends!”
