Attention mighty warriors of Europe! Gloryhammer announced as special guest for HAMMERFALL!
One of the most distinctive metal bands in the past 20 years and sometimes hailed as the saviours of heavy metal, HAMMERFALL recently announced the release of their upcoming album 'Built To Last', set to be released on November 4th on Napalm Records. In the wake of what will be the band's 10th studio effort, HAMMERFALL will embark on another celebrated tour over Europe, beginning on January 12th 2017 in Bremen, Germany. Now the band announced special guests GLORYHAMMER to be joining HAMMERFALL on their extensive European Tour, and the support will come from LANCER!
"We got exactly the support bands we wanted", says guitarist Oscar Dronjak. "There is no doubt in my mind that Lancer will be thoroughly enjoyed by all our fans, and Gloryhammer's mighty and epic music will be the perfect lead-in to the HammerFall show that will follow. The World Wide (r)Evolution was a resounding success on every level with half of the shows sold out, and we can't wait to get back on stage again to have a gigantic heavy metal party every night with all our Templar friends!" Known for their energetic and engaging live shows, HAMMERFALL have been masters of ground-breaking metal anthems since the start of their remarkable career. With an extensive world tour taking place over the past 2 years, the band is now gearing up for another run following the release of their upcoming album 'Built To Last'.
