TÝR Announce North American Tour with Children of Bodom

TÝR will be joining Children of Bodom on their “Halo of Blood over North America” tour in early 2014. The tour will embark on February 14 in Quebec City and wraps up on March 28 and 29 with back-to-back shows at Irving Plaza in New York, NY. Additional supporting acts are TBA with announcements coming soon. Tickets and premium packages are available now exclusively at SHOWstubs.com. General tickets will go on sale on Friday, November 8 at 10:00am local time.

Vocalist/guitarist Heri Joensen shares his excitement for this tour:

“Finally we get to announce this one. It’s been in the works for a long time and it’s probably the biggest tour we’ve ever been on. North America, we’re very excited to see you all again soon!”

TÝR performed live on August 10 as part of the Faroe Island’s Summarfestivalurin in Klaksvik. Over 8,000 Faroese were in attendance as the band put on a huge set featuring old favorites, as well as new tracks, including “Blood of Heroes.” The event was filmed and a video for “Blood of Heroes” can be seen now at metalblade.com/tyr.

TÝR’s brand new album, “Valkyrja,” has debuted on charts worldwide! In the US, the album reached #15 on the Billboard Heatseeker’s Chart, #22 on Current Hard Music, #39 on Overall Hard Music, and #70 on the Independent albums chart! On iTunes on day of release, “Valkyrja” reached #4 on the metal chart. In Europe, the album entered at #45 on German Top 100 Album Charts, and #76 on Switzerland’s charts. And in Canada, the record reached #26 on the Metal chart. On iTunes Canada, the record peaked at #2 on the metal chart, #9 on the rock chart, and #73 on the top 200 albums chart!

About:
Valkyrja is a concept album with a story line based loosely around a nameless Viking age warrior who leaves his woman and goes off to impress the Valkyrie on the battlefield so that she may bring him to Valhalla, or to Fólkvangr, the home of Freyja—the goddess associated with love, sexuality, beauty, fertility, gold, sorcery, war, and death. One can say the album is also indirectly about women and how they affect men and what men will do to impress and obtain women.

Front man and founder Heri Joensen goes on to explain;

“the woman that the warrior leaves may represent the earthly women. Freyja, The Lady Of The Slain, may represent the perfection of Women, and the Valkyrie is the link between the two, taking men from earthly to godly women.”

CANNIBAL CORPSE Announces 25th Anniversar​y Shows

Cannibal Corpse will be wrapping up their 25th anniversary celebrations for 2013 with a pair of shows in Florida, which has served as the band’s base of operations since relocating to Tampa from Buffalo, NY in 1994. The shows are scheduled for November 29 in Ft. Lauderdale, FL at the Culture Room and November 30 in Tampa, FL at the Brass Mug. Tickets will be on sale this Friday at ticketmaster.com for the Culture Room and TBA for the Brass Mug.

Founding member and bassist Alex Webster comments:

“We are very excited to be doing these shows in Florida this November. We formed the band in the first week of December back in 1988 so these shows will be happening almost exactly 25 years after our formation. It will be great to celebrate our band’s anniversary in the state that helped put death metal on the map. Also, we are very happy to be able play Ft. Lauderdale to make up for the show we missed there in June. And I think fans in both cities will be happy when they see the ticket price for these shows!”
