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.”

WILSON Announces Tour With FUCK FACE UNSTOPPABLE

WILSON has just finished what was quite possibly their most debaucherous tour to date, and these dudes have no plans on stopping any time soon.

That being said the non-stop party will continue with a headline date on November 1 in Big Rapids, MI. Then at the end of November, WILSON will hit the road with Bam Margera’s Fuck Face Unstoppable. 

The Fuck Face Unstoppable tour kicks off November 30 in Peoria, IL and runs through December 18 in Montreal, QUE.  That’s not it though; this December the WILSON boys will be playing a special holiday show with fellow Detroit Metallers, Battlecross. 

Frontman Chad Nicefield checked in with an update on the band’s upcoming plans:

“After obliterating our minds and bodies with the spirits (the boozy kind) of what was almost the ENTIRE U.S of A over the past two months, we are excited to announce this next run of the gamut for WILSON.

We expect to not only smear our rock and roll feces all over the face of Canada, but are beyond excited to spend this captivating period of time with the likes of Mr. Margera and crew! We even get to spend a few days celebrating the holidays with our dear fellow Detroiters Battlecross! (FUCK YEA!)

We want you to fully expect WILSON to leave it all on stage every night. Nothing will stop the fuckery, nothing CAN stop the fuckery! Not even sub-zero temps, the mountains of the West or any wussy snow or ice that may try and stick it’s boner in our spokes.

So HO HO HO mother fuckers, WILSON has a bag of shit hawks to send flying in each of your towns!”

The Fuckery will be taking to the high seas next year as WILSON will be taking part in the “Shiprocked” Cruise set for January 26 – 30 2014.  The band will appear alongside Five Finger Death Punch, Papa Roach and many others.

For more information and to book a spot, visit the official site HERE.

WILSON’s video for “College Gangbang” (as heard on The Welding Roo) can be seen HERE.

WILSON are five dudes in a van with beards and big dicks- working harder than your parents.  But instead of giving their all as stockbrokers or auto-mechanics or assistant branch managers their job is to destroy your party.  When that WILSON van cruises into your town that shit is REAL. Real MUSIC. Real LIFE. Real LOUD. Real SWEATY. And real fucking FUN.

“Your children will emerge from the womb looking like tattooed Wookies” – Decibel Magazine

 “An album that doesn’t take itself so seriously is as refreshing as a vodka-spiked limeade on a 95-degree day. (Seriously, lemonade sucks in comparison)” – Metal Sucks

Full Blast Fuckery is the album you put on when everyone’s at the party and you’ve opened the first twenty-something beers with every intention of destroying the place down to the last thing worth destroying” – Metal Injection

“A debut album many bands strive for, but are rarely able to accomplish” -Rock Revolt Magazine

TRIVIUM Free Download, Tour Dates

Trivium have announced the release of their eagerly awaited new album. Vengeance Falls, which follows 2011’s chart-topping blockbuster In Waves, arrives in stores and at all digital retailers on October 15.

The album’s opening track, “Brave This Storm,” is available as a free MP3 download now at www.Trivium.fm.

Trivium vocalist and guitarist Matt Heafy,

Vengeance Falls is the culmination of everything we’ve gone through; the representation of struggle endured from within and experienced from the world. Every failure and every success has led us to this moment. Vengeance Falls is this moment in time.”

Producer David Draiman added,

Vengeance Falls is a masterpiece of metal. It is their finest work to date, and a record so strong that it will blow the doors open to a world they deserve to dominate.”

Long hailed as one of modern metal’s most powerful live acts, Trivium will hit the road hard in support of Vengeance Falls, kicking off with a North American co-headline tour alongside DevilDriver. The dates get underway Thursday, September 12 at Boise, Idaho’s Knitting Factory and then continue through October 17 in San Diego, California. In the meantime, the Orlando, Florida-based band will spend the remainder of this summer lighting up Europe, including upper-bill appearances at such hard rock festivals as Germany’s Wacken, Bucharest, Romania’s Rock The City 2013, Spain’s Resurrection Fest, Sweden’s Getaway Rock Festival, Czech Republic’s Brutal Assault, and Germany’s ELB-RIOT and X Rockfest.
