Vreid Announces North American Tour Dates

Norwegian black metal act Vreid will embark upon a North American headlining trek this August. Sponsored by MetalSucks and Metal Injection, The Black Path Of America Tour 2011 will commence on August 25th in Toronto and trample through 14 cities before coming to a ceremonious close on September 10th in San Diego. Vreid will be joined by pagan black metal co-headliners Kampfar and Canadian death metal ensemble Necronomicon.

Commented Vreid bassist, Hváll: “It is with great joy we can announce our first headlining tour in North America. The Black Path Of America tour is packed with ten US and six Canadian shows. We did our first full North America tour in 2009 on the Heathen Fest, and the reaction we got was overwhelming. We had amazing shows in Montreal, Cleveland and San Francisco — to name just a few — and are glad to see all those cities plus many more on the list for our upcoming tour. Our latest album, V, is doing fantastic, and has become a monumental release for us. We can’t wait to return to the Wild West to unleash songs new and old with our own production. Joining us on this tour are our good Norwegian friends of the legendary Kampfar and Necronomicon from Canada. It’s a killer lineup, and we hope to see as many of you as possible at the shows.”

Man I've been listening to Vreid a ton lately, especially "Milorg" which is an album I highly recommend. Go see them if you can! It would definitely be worth it.
