Earlier this year, we spoke to Ensiferum’s Petri Lindroos as he assured us the group will return to North America at least one more time before 2019 ends. Luckily, these Finnish folk metal titans have kept their word as they will return for a North American tour in November. This time around, the group has invited Kalmah, Abigail Williams, and Aenimus. This is a tour you do not want to miss, which also marks Kalmah’s second-ever North American trek. Perhaps, this time around, there will be more Pikachus in the pit.  

Ensiferum’s Sami Hinkka expressed his excitement:

“Hi folks! It’s time to get back on the road for one last time before we head to studio to record the next Ensiferum album. We couldn’t be more thrilled about the upcoming North America tour! It’s gonna be fireworks of metal for the whole evening because we’ll share the stage with awesome bands: Kalmah, Abigail Williams and Aenimus!” 

Kalmah are known for their few Swamp metal words as the group commented:

“Everybody knows what Santa Claus does but what happens when these two bearded creatures appear at once? I mean Swamplord and that other to the other guy…” 

Abigail Williams added:

“After taking a year off to complete our new album, we will hit the road with our friends Ensiferum, Kalmah and Aenimus in November. Expect a set list full of new songs and a couple of old favorites.” 

Aenimus, another group who we recently caught up with also commented on the upcoming trek: 

“We are thrilled to be a part of the ‘Path To Victory Tour’ this Fall with Ensiferum, Kalmah and Abigail Williams. With this tour being such a diverse line up, we hope to see lots of new faces and perform for people who otherwise may not have heard of Aenimus. We will be returning to some of our favorite cities in the US and Canada, and some exciting new markets.”
