LACUNA COIL, MOONSPELL, PASSENGER and POISONBLACK will teaming up for a European club tour this winter.

An as-yet-unannounced opener will kick off the proceedings, and will be followed by Finland's POISONBLACK, who feature in their ranks SENTENCED frontman Ville Laihiala on guitar and CHARON frontman J.P. Leppäluo. Sweden's PASSENGER will add a different favour: Anders Fridén, well known as the frontman of IN FLAMES, riff-god Niclas Engelin (GARDENIAN) and Patrik J. Sten (ex-TRANSPORT LEAGUE) will rock the clubs with catchy tunes. Finally, Portugal's MOONSPELL, who are releasing their highly acclaimed album, "The Antidote", on September 29 and the bewitching Cristina Scabbia together with her fellow Italian bandmates from LACUNA COIL will round out these special evenings.
