Candlelight Records recently announced its second North American label tour package. Set to kick off January 9 Candlelight II: Phoenix Rising will feature the long-awaited stateside return of Dark Funeral (Sweden), Enslaved (Norway) and introduce newcomers Abigail Williams (USA). The tour will visit 20-plus cities before concluding on February 4.

Dark Funeral guitarist/founding member Lord Ahriman says, "since we announced the first European tour dates for our latest album Attera Totus Sanctus earlier this year, there has been a constant and completely overwhelming flow of mails from the US and Canada asking when the hell we will tour North America. Well finally dates are being booked! Last time we toured the US supporting Cannibal Corpse in 2002 we had a blast. Everyone we met during that tour was really cool. The crowd was totally awesome. It'll be killer to finally return overseas! I have the feeling that this is going to be one hell of a tour and we hope see you in January!"

Enslaved guitarist Ivar Bjornson adds, "I have awaited this moment since I don’t know when and now it is official: an extensive Enslaved tour in North America is becoming reality. We have been working every possible angle of getting over to present our music for years. We are looking forward to seeing each and every one of you at the shows. You won’t be disappointed; neither will we."

The tour continues Candlelight's growing commitment to the live forum. Recent Candlelight artists to visit the US include Vader (Poland),Destruction (Germany), and Emperor (Norway). This fall Candlelight will present tours from Dismember (Sweden), Epica (Netherlands), 1349 (Norway), Sahg (Norway), Daylight Dies (USA) and Witchcraft (Sweden), with additional festivals and tour announcements to soon follow.

Dates and ticket on sale information for Candlelight II: Phoenix Rising will be announced shortly. The first date to be revealed is as follows:

January 9 - Springfield, VA @ Jaxx
