Hammerfall & Delain Co-Headlining Bill

Europe’s melodic metal powerhouses Hammerfall and Delain kick off a co-headlining tour in April. The 2017 North American excursion features stops in major markets across Canada and the U.S.

The quest begins with three dates in Canada before hitting the East Coast and winding through the Midwest. Then the metal forces will land back in Canadian territory before unleashing their sonic assault on the West Coast. The last leg wraps in the South in May.

Swedish Hammerfall is supporting its forthcoming tenth studio album, Built to Last, which drops Nov. 4 and is the band’s debut on Napalm Records. The lead single, “The Sacred Vow,” is available for streaming now.

“We haven’t done a proper tour in North America since 2010, so I hope the fans realize how unique this is for both us and them,” Hammerfall guitarist Oscar Dronjak said. “This is very exciting! Get ready for one hell of a heavy metal party each and every night!”

Delain hails from the Netherlands and will be performing tracks never before heard live from its latest release, Moonbathers. The band is celebrating the 10th anniversary of its debut album, Lucidity, so you’re sure to hear all your classic favorites as well.

“We are proud to announce that we will embark on our first ever co-headline tour through the U.S. in April/May 2017 with Hammerfall!,” Delain frontwoman Charlotte Wessells said. “After extensively touring the U.S. on several support runs in the last years we’re excited to hit the road in support of our new album, Moonbathers, and offer our U.S. fans the full Delain experience. Check out the dates below and let us know where you’ll be attending. See you on the road!”
