INSOMNIUM Announce New European Headline Dates In October; WOLFHEART To Support

After two highly successful tours in Europe supporting the release of their latest album Shadows Of The Dying Sun, Finnish melodic death metallers Insomnium return to headline in eastern and southern Europe in October. The band are bringing fellow countrymen Wolfheart along as special guests. The tour kicks off from the Baltics and consists of 18 shows.

Insomnium’s Niilo Sevänen comments: "We are thrilled about this tour as we finally get to play in many of those European countries we've never visited before! Over the years we have received a lot of fan messages from places like Greece and Turkey so it's awesome to finally get over there. Our friend, the guitar wizard & grandmaster Jani Liimatainen (Cain's Offering, ex-Sonata Arctica) will be the stand-in man for this tour as Ville is not able to join us due to his busy work schedule. So it will be a very special Insomnium show each night with the guitar hero duo of Vanhala & Liimatainen delivering the goodies!"

Wolfheart’s Tuomas Saukkonen adds: “Perfect timing after the second album Shadow World release, perfect main band and a lot of countries I have never played in so far. Counting hours to get on the road with the wolfpack supporting mighty Insomnium! Cooler than cool = Ice Cold!!”
