The organizers of the 70,000 Tons of Metal Cruise have issued the following announcement about confirming Tyr for the 2013 edition:

"After crossing the North Atlantic 70,000 Tons of Metal stopped at the Faroe Islands to pick up some of their good old friends. Please welcome TÝR on board The World's Biggest Heavy Metal Cruise! Now they continue their journey into the Norwegian Sea, course East South-East. And what are their Scouts on the European mainland doing... how far East will they go?

"Are you ready to start next year in style? Just imagine: In January 2013, 40 Heavy Metal bands and 2,000 fans from all over the World will go to the Caribbean to take over the luxury cruise ship 'Majesty of the Seas' for 5 days and 4 nights. Book your cabin now at this location and be part of Heavy Metal History made in the Caribbean once again on 70,000 Tons of Metal, The World's Biggest Heavy Metal Cruise! The Original Metal Cruise: Home of the biggest open air stage to sail the oceans!

"And they also spare no expense to remove the seats in front of the stage in the theater, or do you really like seated Heavy Metal shows? This is 70,000 Tons of Metal, The World's Biggest Heavy Metal Cruise where you enjoy unrestricted festival access to all live shows on board. And don't forget, every band plays twice! There are also Open Mic Nights, Clinics, Work-Shops, the infamous 70,000 Tons of Metal Karaoke, Bars that never close, you heard right: They don't close, two full days at Sea, a fun-and-sun-filled day on a beautiful Caribbean Island and an opportunity to mingle side-by-side with the artists that all join us for the entire trip. It's like everyone has a backstage pass!"
