AMORPHIS Confirmed As Second Headliner Of PROGPOWER USA IX

January 15, 2008

Finland's AMORPHIS has been confirmed as the second headliner of ProgPower USA IX. America's premiere metal festival returns to Center Stage in Atlanta on September 26 and September 27.

"AMORPHIS may not fit the stereotypical profile, but they truly are a progressive giant in this scene," said ProgPower USA promoter Glenn Harveston. "From their death metal roots to the current moody atmosphere, they have done it all. Any band that can survive for sixteen years by doing it their own way deserves to be a headliner."

AMORPHIS's last performance in the U.S. was in 2003.

Joining the band are festival headliner ICED EARTH, Florida's JON OLIVA'S PAIN, Poland's RIVERSIDE, Germany's IRON SAVIOR, Denmark's VOLBEAT, Sweden's ANDROMEDA, Florida's ROB ROCK, Italy's ELVENKING, France's SPHERIC UNIVERSE EXPERIENCE, Austria's SERENITY, and Italy's PATHOSRAY.

Tickets for ProgPower USA IX go on sale March 1 and limited to 900 tickets. Advance gold badges are sold out for the seventh consecutive year.
