Following their maiden voyage on the 70,000 Tons of Metal Cruise earlier this year, viking metallers Amon Amarth have just announced their triumphant return to the US in support of their upcoming release, Surtur Rising. Dubbed “An Evening with Amon Amarth,” the tour will embark on April 14th in Chicago, with the band performing two separate sets at each stop on the trek.

Drummer Fredrik Andersson commented:

“We’re really excited about the upcoming album, Surtur Rising. And what better way to showcase it by playing the full album on our first U.S. tour for Surtur Rising?! It’s definitely a unique opportunity for our fans because not only will the album be performed live but a second set with material from our previous albums will take place. We want our fans to really experience Amon Amarth.”

Surtur Rising, Amon Amarth’s eighth studio offering, will see a March 29th release date through Metal Blade Records. In anticipation, the band has launched with album news and pre-orders available for North America and Europe.
