Currently touring across North America as part of the "Tyranny & Bloodshred" tour, Greek melodic metal masters FIREWIND checked in with a brief comment on how things are going. Guitarist Gus G. comments: "We're on our 2nd week on the 'Tyranny & Bloodshred' tour and it's only been killer shows so far! The East Coast American and Canadian audiences have shown a lot of love to Firewind and it's a great feeling returning to America. Also the vibe between all the bands and crew is fantastic, like a big family! It's great to share the stage with kick ass bands like Dark Tranquillity, Divine Heresy and the mighty Arch Enemy! See you out there!"

Meanwhile, FIREWIND has already announced their return to UK stages directly upon returning from the North American trip, as they have now also been confirmed to appear on the famous Download festival in Donington (UK), which among others features acts such as Kiss, Judas Priest, Motörhead, Disturbed and Kid Rock.

You can catch them on the Friday 13th June at Download Festival, Donington Park.

Furthermore, FIREWIND is also confirmed for a comprehensive UK headlining tour in September and Gus G. adds: "It's no secret that in the UK we have loyal and hardcore FIREWIND fans. And we're extremely happy to announce our first extensive UK headline tour which includes 9 shows in England, Scotland and Ireland, for the first time!"
