Swedish power metal act Lancer has signed to Nuclear Blast Records for the release of the upcoming third full length studio album "Mastery." The album will be issued on January 13th. In addition, the band will tour Europe with HammerFall and Gloryhammer.

Once again, the cover artwork was created by Dimitar Nikolov (Ross the Boss, Majesty). The final layout was done by Marcelo Vasco (Slayer, Machine Head) and can be viewed below.

As if this wasn't enough, Lancer will be opening for iconic heavy metallers HammerFall on the upcoming European tour, "Built To Tour," in January 2017. Intergalactic space metallers Gloryhammer will be completing this powerful touring package. This tour is not to be missed! All dates and the tour poster can be seen below!

Singer Isak Stenvall stated: "I'm super excited, all the songs are killers, the cover artwork is fantastic and the sound and production is flawless. The fact that we will release the album on Nuclear Blast, and that I just got the news that we're playing in Tokyo in November, plus a European tour with HammerFall and Gloryhammer in the beginning of next year just makes me even more excited over this release!"

HammerFall's Oscar Dronjak says: ”We got exactly the support bands we wanted. There is no doubt in my mind that Lancer will be thoroughly enjoyed by all our fans, and Gloryhammer’s mighty and epic music will be the perfect lead-in to the HammerFall show that will follow. The World Wide (r)Evolution was a resounding success on every level with half of the shows sold out, and we can’t wait to get back on stage again to have a gigantic heavy metal party every night with all our Templar friends!”
