WINTERSUN has just been confirmed to play several shows in UK and Ireland in July. The Finns will rock the stages in London, Manchester, Nottingham, Newcastle, Belfast, Dublin and Bristol.
The band comments: "We're very pleased to announce a UK / Ireland Tour in July 2013! After the great reception we got during our last visit in UK at Bloodstock 2011 we're really excited to finally return to your area with seven club shows in July! Hope to see you there!"
Wintersun's current dates can be found below. The band recently issued an update regarding Time II.
Says the band: "We are starting the mix of Time II and it will be released early 2014. The album will continue where Time I left, but it will be an upgrade in production, it will be equally epic, if not more. It will contain some 'fast stuff' and some guitar shredding (incl. seven solos) like some of you metal heads and guitar wankers have been wishing for. It will also contain some of the most beautiful music ever written, that will bring a tear to your eye."
