Turisas: Supports for UK-Tour: Chthonic (TW) and Kiuas (FIN)
Finnish battle metal group TURISAS are pleased to announce the support bands for the upcoming UK headline tour, which will start on 27 October 2011.
Violinist Olli Vänskä says: "We're glad to be able to announce what we feel is a really strong support package for the UK shows - both bands have been to the UK before but probably haven't yet had the exposure they deserve - we'll try to change that! Make sure you get down to the shows early to experience something a little bit different!"
The support bands will be cult Taiwanese metallers Chtonic, plus fellow Finns Kiuas. The tour consists of 17 dates, including 2 co-headline gigs with Devin Townsend Project and appearance at Leeds' Damnation Festival. The dates on the tour are as follows:
