With a phenomenal start to 2008 after the second headlining UK tour as well as their first European headlining run with Century Media labelmates NORTHER, TURISAS have confirmed that they will once again be gracing UK shores after having been confirmed as main support on the fall tour with DRAGONFORCE.

Warlord Nygard had the following to say on the forthcoming tour: "We just made it back from a very successful European tour which included an impressive 13 dates in the UK. We were really surprised how amazing the turnout was, with many of the UK shows selling out, considering we had only played one of the cities before. The crowds were crazy and now we're extremely pleased that we're able to come back in autumn to do it all over again. Were joining up with DRAGONFORCE on their UK tour and this something we're already hugely looking forward to. We are also extra excited about the shows in Ireland, which will be our first ones on the island that we've been unfortunate enough to miss out on previous tours. As you can imagine, Olli is sharpening his bow already as his one-man mission is about to reach its climax ... All in all, it's going to be a great package no-one should miss out on. Right now were just about to head out on a voyage to begin our assault on the U.S. as part of the Paganfest, so well either see you at the summer festivals or in the autumn.
