Insomnium announce headline European tour

Finnish melodic death metallers INSOMNIUM have announced a headline European tour for early 2017!

With the band set to release their brand new studio record, Winter’s Gate, in September INSOMNIUM will tour Europe in early 2017 in support of their new album. With Winter’s Gate being a concept record, one full 40 minute track, the band will be playing the entirety of the record on the tour.

“We are very excited to get back on the road again! Last autumn a serious illness in my family forced us to make some drastic decisions and for example cancel one tour altogether” says frontman Niilo Sevänen. “Since then things have progressed very well and steadily so everything looks a lot better at the moment. We’ve only made festivals and short trips this year but in 2017 we’ll be back on making longer tours all over the world. The forthcoming Winter’s Gate album has been mixed by Dan Swanö and it sounds amazing. Playing this 40 minute monster song will be an interesting challenge in a live situation but we can’t wait to do this! This European tour in January will be a rare opportunity for our fans to hear the whole epic song live, so it will be a very special show every night.”
