The Italian symphonic metal band Sleeping Romance will be touring Europe in September 2018 to promote their new album “Alba” (Napalm Records). As a special guest, the successful Slovak melodic metal band Within Silence will come along.

Since the release of the debut album “Enlighten” (Ulterium Records), Sleeping Romance has been working hard. At the end of 2013, the band went through Europe as a support for Theocracy, and the Italians immediately made a reputation. As a result, several tours soon followed, with the band gaining a foothold, especially in the Netherlands and Belgium.
