Sonata Artica, Delain, & Xandria team up for Fall 2014 North American tour

Napalm Records Artists DELAIN and XANDRIA are teaming up with Sonata Arctica for a North American tour this fall. The tour kicks off September 3rd in Teaneck, New Jersey and will run through October 15th in Tampa, Florida. XANDRIA will open the tour and DELAIN will provide direct support to Sonata Arctica. Tickets for the shows are available now at

DELAIN will be touring in support of their forthcoming album which is scheduled for release this May via Napalm Records. More information on their new album will be released shortly.

DELAIN singer Charlotte Wessels spoke about the bands return to North America with Sonata Arctica and XANDIRA:

“After the great experience of touring North American grounds for the first time last fall and meeting so many US Delainers, we are really excited to announce our quick return to the other side of the big pond in 2014 with Sonata Arctica and XANDRIA. We already had the pleasure of touring with Sonata Arctica in Europe a few years back, and if this experience was anything to go by, you surely don’t want to miss out on our upcoming tour! See you all on the road. We can’t wait!”

XANDRIA will release their new album Sacrificium this April on Napalm Records. Fans can expect to hear selections from the new album as well as classic XANDRIA material.

XANDRIA commented on their first North American tour:

“We are very happy and feel honored to share the stage with such great bands. Touring the US and Canada always was a dream for us and we are totally psyched about this upcoming journey. We are very much looking forward playing to most of you for the very first time. See you all on the road.”

    I guess its better than Within Temptation. Crossing over into pop and rap/alternative trash. They’re aren’t even metal, nor never really were, anymore.
