Melancholic progressive metallers AMORPHIS will return to North America with a co-headlining trek with DARK TRANQUILLITY this September/October. Joining them are Portugal's premier gothic-metallic-force MOONSPELL, and Finnish melo-death contingent OMNIUM GATHERUM.

AMORPHIS will be touring in support of their soon to be announced new album, produced and mixed once again by Jens Bogren (OPETH, AMON AMARTH, KATATONIA).

Guitarist Esa Holopainen commented: "We are extremely excited to start the world tour with new album from North America.

"There's been lot of requests to hit the states again after our last tour spring 2017. This time we come over with a killer package.

"Touring with DARK TRANQUILLITY, MOONSPELL and OMNIUM GATHERUM is almost like having a road trip with best mates around. Every band has a strong fanbase so there will be something for everyone."

Holopainen continued and offered this update from the studio as well: "We just finished new album recordings with our producer Jens Bogren and result is very bombastic! Album release is tentatively this May and it's a great privilege to introduce new songs first time for North American audience.

"AMORPHIS has long history behind so once again we try to offer something for everyone. Impossible but doable.

"Shine on, see you soon and support live music. That keeps our engines running!"
