Insomnium To Return To UK In January 2017 As Part Of Winter’s Gate European Tour

Insomnium Download Festival 2015

Fans of melodic death metal rejoice, for the Finnish masters Insomnium are returning to UK shores in early 2017. Their short three date trip to England in January will form part of a much larger “Winter’s Gate” European tour taking place in January. The tour is named for Insomnium’s forthcoming concept album Winter’s Gate, which will tell a story of Vikings over the course of one epic forty minute long song. Quite frankly we can’t wait for the tour or the album! Details of where to catch Insomnium can be found below:

The band, and more specifically their main man, singer Nillo Sevänen, want to tell you how excited they are to be taking their concept album on the road early next year:

”We are very excited to get back on the road again! Last autumn a serious illness in my family forced us to make some drastic decisions and for example cancel one tour altogether. Since then things have progressed very well and steadily so everything looks a lot better at the moment. We’ve only made festivals and short trips this year but in 2017 we’ll be back on making longer tours all over the world.

The forthcoming Winter’s Gate album has been mixed by Dan Swanö and it sounds amazing. Playing this 40 minute monster song will be an interesting challenge in a live situation but we can’t wait to do this! This European tour in January will be a rare opportunity for our fans to hear the whole epic song live, so it will be a very special show every night.”
