Dutch symphonic metal band EPICA and Swiss folk metallers ELUVEITIE have joined forces to tour Europe this fall. This tour will see EPICA and ELUVEITIE co-headline in Germany, Poland and Czech Republic. EPICA will be the headliner on the dates in Italy, France and the UK. Swedish progressive melodic Death Metal band and label mates SCAR SYMMETRY will be the opener for all dates.
EPICA guitar player Isaac Delahaye says the following about the tour:
“Oh boy, I'm super stoked for this! What better way to end our »The Quantum Enigma« world tour than to team up with a band who's - just like us - mixing two different genres into something special; a great metal band with a catchy folk topping. Yummie! Add some delicious riffing from our favourite Swedes, and you can expect a lot of coolio and three bands on top of their game. You wanna hear an orchestra? You wanna see a fiddler? You wanna steal tasty soloing ideas? Or do you just wanna have a great metal night in the pit? We've got it all.“ and ELUVEITIE states "From Switzerland to India, from Europe to North America, from clubs to festivals, our »Origins« world tour is shaping up to be our most extensive one yet. But we are far from tired! Better yet, we have saved a proper highlight for autumn 2015: together with the incredible Epica, we are getting ready to bring what’s bound to be the tour of the year to the stages of Europe. We are extremely excited to share the stage with such accomplished and talented artists, and are already working our asses off to present you the strongest Eluveitie show ever! Both bands bring their unique flavor to metal and have earned their reputation as top live acts, so we are certain that every single night is going to be one to remember."
EPICA and ELUVEITIE will tour in support of their latest album »The Quantum Enigma« and »Origins« which both hit charts all over Europe. SCAR SYMMETRY will tour in support of their upcoming album, which will be released this fall.
