Amon Amarth headlining U.S. tour; playing “Surtur Rising” in its entirety!

Amon Amarth is going out on a U.S. headlining run in April in support of their new album “Surtur Rising.” Dubbed “An Evening With Amon Amarth“, the tour will find the band touring without support acts, instead opting to perform two separate sets at each stop.

One set will find the band performing “Surtur Rising” in its entirety, while the other will see the band play a variety of fan favorites from their back catalog. Speaking on their plans, band drummer Fredrik Andersson offered:

“We’re really excited about the upcoming album, Surtur Rising. And what better way to showcase it by playing the full album on our first U.S. tour for Surtur Rising?! It’s definitely a unique opportunity for our fans because not only will the album be performed live but a second set with material from our previous albums will take place. We want our fans to really experience Amon Amarth.”

“Surtur Rising” drops on March 29th via Metal Blade Records.
