SONATA ARCTICA – announce North American tour dates

SONATA ARCTICA – announce North American ... - 2014-01-14 12:00

2014-01-14 12:00 - Celebrating their 15th year in existence as a recording artist, Finnish Melodic Metallers SONATA ARCTICA are proud to announce their 2014 North American tour in support of their upcoming eighth studio album, »Pariah’s Child«, due out in the U.S. & Canada on April 1st.

The 33-show trek launches in Teaneck, New Jersey on September 3rd, hits nine Canadian cities, and wraps up in Tampa, Florida on October 15th. Dutch Symphonic Metallers DELAIN will be direct support; XANDRIA from Germany will open each night.

SONATA ARCTICA keyboard player Henrik “Henkka” Klingenberg checks in from the frozen tundras of Finland with a special message for North American fans: “Good Morning America! It's been what seems like an eternity since we last did a proper tour in the States and Canada, which makes this so much more anticipated, at least for us. After a lot of ‘if’s, ‘but’s, and what have you, we can finally announce a proper North American Tour as part of our “Pariah's Child World Tour”. In September and October we'll be coming over for a full tour with our friends in DELAIN and XANDRIA, hitting both new and familiar places all across the U.S. and Canada. As it's been 15 years since SONATA released the first album [1999’s »Ecliptica«], we'll bring out some older stuff that haven't been played in a while along with the best tracks from our latest album »Pariah's Child«. Join our celebration or stay at home and listen to your friends brag about it later. Either way, we're gonna have an amazing time and kick some major ass at these shows!!!”

The “Pariah's Child World Tour” will mark the North American on-stage debut of SONATA ARCTICA’s new bass player, Pasi Kauppinen (SILENT VOICES, ex-REQUIEM, WINTERBORN), who replaced long-time band member Marko Paasikoski this past summer.
