After several sold-out shows last year on their inaugural North American co-headlining tour with ELUVEITIE, Finnish epic metallers WINTERSUN will return to North American shores once again for a headlining tour this August/September sponsored by MetalSucks! Joining them are Italian symphonic death metal champions FLESHGOD APOCALYPSE, melodic tech-death kings ARSIS and up-and-comers STARKILL.

“We’re thrilled to return to North America for a full-scale headliner tour in August and September! It will be our first longer own headlining tour ever and this time, without any setlist length limitations, we’ll be able to offer the North American crowds a special show – representing both the Wintersun and TIME I albums. There might also be some surprises in the setlist as well… We are really looking forward to sharing the live magic with YOU, all the fans out there!” Kai, Jari, Teemu & Jukka
