WINTERSUN guitarist Teemu Mantysaari is featured in a new video interview, conducted at this year's Tuska Open Air in Helsinki, Finland where the band played the main stage. Teemu shares his background and early days as musician, how he joined Wintersun in 2004, the band's approach to performing their intricate and multi-layered arrangements live, the guitar gear he prefers, and more.

After several sold-out shows last year on their inaugural North American co-headlining tour with ELUVEITIE, Finnish epic metallers Wintersun will return to North American shores once again for a headlining tour this August/September. Joining them are Italian symphonic death metal champions FLESHGOD APOCALYPSE, melodic tech-death kings ARSIS and up-and-comers STARKILL.

Says Wintersun: "We're thrilled to return to North America for a full-scale headliner tour in August and September! It will be our first longer own headlining tour ever and this time, without any setlist length limitations, we'll be able to offer the North American crowds a special show - representing both the Wintersun and Time I albums. There might also be some surprises in the setlist as well... We are really looking forward to sharing the live magic with YOU, all the fans out there!"
