Epica Announce Dutch Tour Dates

Dutch female-fronted symphonic metal band EPICA has announced several headlining dates in its home country for January 2008. The details are as follows:

Jan. 05 - Doornroosie - Nijmegen, NETH
Jan. 17 - De Kade - Zaandam, NETH
Jan. 18 - Bibelot - Dordrecht, NETH
Jan. 25 - Burgerweeshuis - Deventer, NETH
Jan. 26 - Groene Engel - Oss, NETH

EPICA has been confirmed as the support act for SONATA ARCTICA on their upcoming European tour in November.

EPICA has set "The Divine Conspiracy" as the title of its new album, due August/September via Nuclear Blast Records. The CD, which is currently being mixed by Sascha Paeth, will feature a session appearance by GOD DETHRONED drummer Ariƫn van Weesenbeek. EPICA has yet to name a full-time drummer following the departure of Jeroen Simons in 2006.

Formed by guitarist, vocalist and songwriter Mark Jansen (ex-AFTER FOREVER) in 2002, EPICA has so far released three albums, among them a full-length soundtrack in the vein of Hollywood composers Hans Zimmer and Danny Elfman. The Dutch metallers have already played in 24 countries, and have completed successful tours in Europe, Mexico, Brazil, Argentina and the USA.
