This summer is about feature a whole lot more goblins. Nekrogoblikon has announced a short run of dates in August, in addition to new material being on the way.

Here’s what the band had to say about the trek and new materials:

Stoked to announce that we’ll be on the road with Swashbuckle and Rainbowdragoneyes around our appearance at HEAVY MONTRÉAL this year! We’ll also be debuting new material on this run, so be sure to check it out!

Something about a pirate metal band and a goblin metal band sharing the same stage just seems right. And if you’re wondering what the hell Rainbowdragoneyes is, it’s apparently a one-man band featuring corpse paint and “Extreme Chiptune Dance Metal”, according to Facebook. So he’ll probably fit in nicely.
