Dutch Symphonic Metallers Epica will embark on a Nationwide UK tour this coming November, they are in support of 2014’s critically-acclaimed studio album The Quantum Enigma.
Epica performed a magical set in London in December last year selling out The London Forum as part of their European Enigma tour. The band are now thrilled to announce dates across the UK for this winter.
Epica guitarist Mark Jansen commented:
We had such a great time when we played an one-off UK show at The Forum last year that we will come back for a short run of UK dates this autumn. We will be joined on this run by Eluveitie and Scar Symmetry. I am very pleased to tour with this strong package. I’m sure you all won’t regret coming out to one of these shows and partying with us. See you!!!
Support comes from 2 Nuclear Blast label mates. Switzerland’s Eluveitie released a new album last year, the Celtic Folk influenced Origins (reviewed here), which they performed at a string of sold-out UK dates last Autumn (Glasgow date reviewed here).
Eluveitie frontman Chrigel Glanzmann is excited to be back in the UK:
We’re some eight months into the Origins World Tour; from Switzerland to India, from Europe to North America, from clubs to festivals, this is shaping up to be our most extensive tour yet, and it has already included some of the most memorable Eluveitie shows to date. Yet 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 – and, finally, the UK again!
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 flavour to metal and are known as top live acts, so we are certain that every single night is going to be one to remember. We are looking forward to see you there!
Swedish melodic death metal band Scar Symmetry complete the bill, performing their first UK dates since the release of their new album The Singularity Phase I: Neohumanity , also released in 2014.
