Amon Amarth announces USA tour with Goatwhore

After touring the world this past year in support of their new album, JomsvikingAmon Amarth will head back out on the road this spring for a USA tour with Goatwhore! Starting April 30th, the trek also features select appearances by Amon Amarth at some of the nation’s premier music festivals: “Welcome to Rockville”, “Carolina Rebellion”, “Dark Lord Day”, “Northern Invasion”, and “Rock on the Range”. See the full tour itinerary below.

Amon Amarth comments: “United States! We return to your lands this Spring and we will raid and plunder your little cities as we please. For the first time we will be sailing our longships towards the curious native celebrations called ‘The Loudest Month’ (Welcome To Rockville, Northern Invasion, Carolina Rebellion & Rock On The Range) where we will sack and burn them to the ground and feast on the spoils. Our good friends in the almighty Goatwhore will be joining us on this voyage on all headline shows. You have been warned.

As the band’s first concept record in their storied career, Jomsviking tells a tragic, original tale of conflict and revenge, backed by the Swedes’ trademark melodic, anthemic metal – which was produced and mixed once again by Andy Sneap (Megadeth, Testament, Accept). For their efforts, Amon Amarth landed on the global charts this past year (including a #11 spot on the USA Current Album Billboard Chart!).

If you like Heavy Metal you are going to love the mayhem and chaos that an Amon Amarth and Goatwhore show have to offer. When asked about the tour Goatwhore‘s Ben Falgoust said “We are looking forward to hitting the road with Amon Amarthand playing some raw as fuck metal for you people. Show up with your anger and let’s make some chaos happen. I know you all need to vent some issues. Let’s do it together and crush the opposition. I also hope by the end of this tour I can try to be as cool as Joe Grindo from Theories.”
