According to The Vault, Dutch female-fronted symphonic metal band EPICA has lined up the following North American dates in the fall:
Sep. 06 - Webster Theater - Hartford, CT
Sep. 07 - The Chance - Poughkeepsie, NY
Sep. 09 - HighLine Ballroom - New York City, NY
Sep. 18 - Pearl Room - Mokena, IL

EPICA is currently recording its new album at Gate Studios in Wolfsburg, Germany. The CD, which is being produced by Sascha Paeth, will feature a session appearance by GOD DETHRONED drummer Ariën van Weesenbeek. EPICA has yet to name a full-time drummer following the departure of Jeroen Simons in 2006.
EPICA's previously announced live DVD, which was filmed on May 4, 2006 at Paradiso in Amsterdam, Holland, has been delayed until later this year, according to a posting on the group's official web site. The band's latest album, "Consign to Oblivion", was recorded in early 2005 and features a guest contribution from KAMELOT vocalist Roy Khan.
