Attention heavy rockers, doomheads, retro aficionados, hippies, or simply lovers of timeless rock music: rejoice! Two absolute giants of 70's riff worshipping sound will embark on a tour together in April and May of 2013 – Witchcraft and Orchid. A listing of tour dates are available below, and Nuclear Blat Records also comments on the bands:

"Swedes Witchcraft were one of the first bands who started to recreate the sound of old heroes like Pentagram around 2000 and who only had one goal in mind: to revive the 70s sound with landmark releases such as 'Firewood.' They returned with 'Legend' in 2012 and proved their status as leaders of a whole subgenre once more!

"Orchid from San Francisco are more of a recent phenomenon: the four piece made quite a bunch of heads turn with their debut EP 'Through the Devil's Doorway' in 2009 before they firmly established themselves as the rightful heirs to Black Sabbath's throne with their album 'Capricorn' in 2011. Their second full-length release will be upon us early 2013."
