With a musical career spanning three decades, KREATOR, ambassadors of Germany’s distinctive brand of smoldering thrash metal, will be returning to North America once again, this time as direct support to Sweden’s unstoppable melodic death metallers ARCH ENEMY.
Sponsored by Dean Guitars, the 26-show co-headlining “War Eternal – American Tour 2014” features support from California’s HUNTRESS and Chicago’s STARKILL (on select dates). The trek launches on October 23rd in Baltimore, Maryland, includes eight Canadian shows, and ends on November 23rd in Cleveland, Ohio.
“It’s been three long years since ARCH ENEMY last played North America, but now the wait is over!” states ARCH ENEMY guitarist Michael Amott. “We’re riding a veritable metal tsunami in Europe with our new album War Eternal and look forward to spreading the chaos on this North American run! ARCH ENEMY is very proud and excited to be teaming up with Teutonic thrash titans KREATOR as well as HUNTRESS and STARKILL! Miss this show at your own peril!”
“Both bands have been talking about touring together for many years, now it becomes reality,” states KREATOR guitarist frontman Mille Petrozza. “KREATOR and ARCH ENEMY on one bill in the USA and Canada! We are looking forward for another killer run in support of our album Phantom Antichrist before we will start writing new stuff in 2015! With ARCH ENEMY’s new album War Eternal being a monster, this will be THE metal tour of the fall. Don’t miss it!”
