Power metallers HELLOWEEN are touring the “United Forces” tour of North America in May 2023 with Swedish metallers HAMMERFALL. Tickets will go on sale on Friday, September 30 at 10 a.m. local time.
HELLOWEEN singer Andi Debris comments: “We can’t wait to be back and celebrate our new album with our fans in the U.S. and Canada!”
HELLOWEEN released their self-titled studio album in June 2021. Adored by fans and critics alike, the record catapulted straight to the charts, earning the No. 1 position in Germany and Spain, the Top 5 of seven countries, and the Top 15 multiple times worldwide.
The cover artwork for “Helloween” was painted by artist Eliran Kantor, who has previously worked with HATEBREED, SOULFLY, TESTAMENT, ICED EARTH and SODOM, among others.
HAMMERFALL‘s latest studio album, “Hammer Of Dawn”, was released in February via Napalm Records. The LP was produced by longtime collaborator Fredrik Nordström (IN FLAMES, OPETH),who handled mixing, mastering, drum recording, and shared the duty of recording guitars and bass with guitarists Pontus Norgren and Oscar Dronjak. Jacob Hansen (VOLBEAT) produced the lead vocals.
Singer Joacim Cans spoke about the new album: “It’s hard to describe in words how extremely happy and proud I am about the outcome of ‘Hammer Of Dawn’. It was a struggle, for sure, but in the end we pulled it off and delivered a solid, vital and positive new album. Everyone is on top of his game and together we have created yet another milestone in HAMMERFALL history.”
