    Los Angeles, CA, August 26, 2008 – Finnish warmongers TURISAS are set to make their much anticipated return to North American shores this fall as direct support to Dragonforce. The massive two month trek, which kicks off on NOVEMBER 3rd, is the follow up to the group's highly successful run as part of Pagenfest 2008 this past spring, which also featured their fellow countrymen Ensiferum, Tyr and Eluveitie. The tour will also be in support of their forthcoming and first official DVD (more info on that TBA). The critically acclaimed new offering, The Varangian Way, was recently reissued with a DVD jammed packed with live performance footage. Be sure to visit www.myspace.com/turisasofficial now to view their complete touring itinerary and to check out their "Rasputin" video.

    Warlord (vocals) further states: "Our first North American tour this spring was a success: the turnout was way over our expectations and the crowds were crazy as hell. That's why we are well excited to be returning to the new continent this fall. So lock up your livestock, beer and daughters as the battle metal legion is coming your way!"

    Central to The Varangian Way is the group's concept of a journey through the East-European river route through the lands of modern day East Europe. The Northmen who traveled this path in the 9th-11th centuries were called Varangians. Key to the album's concept is a search for self and identity, both of which are explored by the protagonist in The Varangian Way's eight songs. Truly a display of the band's dedication to the conceptual elements of the album, TURISAS made sure to include cultural influences from the lands the Varangians would have traveled through.



    29.08.2008 - TURISAS HEADLINE DATES ADDED TO THE US/CAN -TOUR

    We will play 5 headliner shows in connection with the US/CAN tour with Dragonforce this autumn. The support act of the Dragonforce -tour, Powerglove, will join us for 2 shows.

    (shows added to list above)

    I'll definitely be at the Seattle show.

    May even hit the Vanc, BC show too at the end of the run.


    Now to hope I find the right person to beg or bribe for a photopass, the Showbox SoDo has a photopit. :D

    Plus one of my favorite bands of all time, Turisas. Again!

    Plus Powerglove....I missed em last time and really regretted it.

    Awesome tour. Can't wait for this :kickass::kickass::kickass::kickass::kickass:

    A lot of people.....because all their songs sound the same and they're too popular. I like Valley of the Damned and the other 2 are good...the new one is kinda gay though.

    But yeah....I saw Dragonforce about a year ago and they were so fun live. There was like 5 mini-circle pits.

    Plus Turisas. Duh. Amazing.

    And I cannot wait to finally see Powerglove live

    Atlanta :kickass:

    Epic.

    You will either have a sense of humor and enjoy the awesome music or think it sucks because it's too corny and video game metal.

    Anyone know if I'd be able to meet Turisas and get a picture or two with the band if I were to buy a VIP ticket?

    I'd buy a VIP ticket, or at the least purchase Turisas' alcohol for the evening for such an opportunity.

    waiting for the band outside would be probably a cheaper solution than buying a VIP ticket I guess

    At least here in Seattle, all venues are non-smoking, just wait for one of them to have a nic fit and catch them outside then. Worked in Seattle last time. :devil:
