MOONSPELL - Announce North American Tour with Special Guests Swallow The Sun and Witherfall!

In celebration of their nothing short of amazing 30-year career, crowned by the band’s latest and critically acclaimed studio album Hermitage, the undisputed kings of the dark, MOONSPELL, have announced an extensive North American anniversary tour dubbed “American Full Moon”, featuring special guests Swallow The Sun and Witherfall, and kicking off in New York City this August! Tickets are now on sale at THIS LOCATION – see below for all dates!

Since their formation 30 years ago, the Portuguese band has taken the international heavy music scene by storm, followed by a monumental journey through an impressive, enthralling yet varying back catalogue of thirteen records, earning their place as one of the most distinctive dark metal artists of all time. But playing live has always been the motor of the band. For the first time since the world went into lockdown, and in addition to their extensive touring schedule throughout Europe this year, the band satiates the hunger of the wolfpack by announcing an upcoming tour of North America! Says charismatic frontman Fernando Ribeiro:

"American Full Moon is going to be the ultimate celebration of Moonspell’s legacy, past and present. 30 years under the spell can’t be missed by any fans overseas! Joining us will be Swallow The Sun and Witherfall, masters of their own craft who will add their own awesomeness to a tour which will bring us all together under, hell yea, a FULL MOON madness!

We will be revisiting our career and playing classics, new songs and hidden gems alike, so the hype is real, brace yourself for an extraordinary voyage in the amazing company of these bands, probably the best and most heartfelt tour of 2022.”

30 years of MOONSPELL, and blessedly the band doesn’t show any signs of slowing down soon. With their latest record Hermitage, the gothic metal masters proved they still belong to the first league of the darkest art of sounds. To celebrate their band anniversary in style, MOONSPELL also announced many more reissues and new release highlights for 2022! The band is currently putting the final touches on their new live album + DVD/BluRay, recorded live 80 meters deep below the earth, at Grutas de Mira D’Aire (a cave and one of Portugal’s seven natural wonders), while writing their new album which shall see the light of the day in 2023. One can be sure, their upcoming live performances will contain an exciting blend of timeless classics and modern MOONSPELL anthems!
