‘Eluveitie’ To Perform Entire ‘Helvetios’ Album On North American Tour


Swiss folk metallers Eluveitie will perform their latest concept album, ‘Helvetios’, in its entirety during the band’s upcoming North American co-headlining tour with Finnish epic metallers Wintersun.

Commented Eluveitie: “We cannot wait to be back to North America in support of our two recent releases, for the first time headlining with material from our latest concept album. To celebrate this occasion, we have decided to treat our North American fans to a very special show, one that in fact we have only performed once before: Besides a selection of our all-time hits, we will be playing the full album ‘Helvetios’ from beginning to end, live on stage, every night!”

Eluveitie and Wintersun have announced several in-store appearances scheduled around their North American co-headlining tour. The trek will commemorate Eluveitie‘s 10th anniversary as well as serve as Wintersun‘s introduction to North American shores. This momentous event will also include the German pagan metal band Varg.
