Folk Metallers Turisas have announced the dates for their “Stand Up and Fight” Tour which will begin in March 2011 in London.
Violinist Olli Vänskä comments: “It’s been a while since we’ve played anywhere in the UK or Continental Europe…. Time to fix that! I’m especially happy about doing the British club shows – it feels like so long since we’ve toured there (not counting the odd festival appearance). UK crowds are wild and they’ve always made us feel welcome over there. Thinking back, some of our best ever shows have been in the UK and Continental Europe, and we have no doubt that these shows will be something very special as well. We can’t wait to show off the new look and play some mean new tunes! And as for all you maniacs in Paris, Amsterdam and Vosselaar; by the time these shows come around it will have been nearly two years since we’ve seen you – but believe me, it WILL be worth the wait! We have something particularly savage in mind for you guys!”
The tour is in support of the band’s upcoming album “Stand up and Fight” which will be released on January 28th on Nuclear Blast Records. The band is also planning to tour North America with Cradle of Filth in February.
