Unleash the Archers, whose album Abyss won the prestigious Vince Neilstein Best Metal Album of 2020 award, have announced a new batch of U.S. tour dates. These are in lieu of European tour dates that had to be called off because of the pandemic. Once again, Europe’s loss is ‘Muhrica’s gain.
As was the case with their recently completed trek, support will come from Aether Realm and Seven Kingdoms. So I guess that package worked out pretty well!
Unleash the Archers vocalist Brittney Slayes expressed her excitement for the tour in a statement containing not one but TWO winking faces. If only all bands had such confidence in their live show!
“What if we had some good news for a change? ;) When life gives you lemons, make lemonade… So this is us making some lemonade! As you might know, we recently had to cancel our European tour, but we have been working our butts off this last week to do a quick scheduling of dates in the U.S. for this December. To start, we are going to replace the five shows that were cancelled in September (Minneapolis, Chicago, Detroit, Pittsburgh and Rochester) and are super excited to add some additional dates in Canada and the surrounding U.S. as well.
“Again, we are so sorry to everyone in Europe that we are going to be missing, but hopefully everyone who had a show cancelled on them earlier this year in the U.S. will get a chance to come rock out with us before the year is over! Also, Aether Realm and Seven Kingdoms are on board again so that’s some great news too 😉 See you all in December!”
