Finnish battle metallers Turisas just announced that Taiwanese melodic black metallers Chthonic and Finnish power metallers Kiuas are filling the support slots on their upcoming UK & Ireland Tour, taking off by the end of October to mid-November.
On November 7th (Belfast) and 8th (Dublin), instead of Chthonic and Kiuas, Canadian musician Devin Townsend will join as co-headliner.
Violinist Olli Vänskä says: "We're glad to be able to announce what we feel is a really strong support package for the UK shows - both bands have been to the UK before but probably haven't yet had the exposure they deserve - we'll try to change that! Make sure you get down to the shows early to experience something a little bit different!"

They need to do a tour here in the states. I just recently went to a bar in Boston, USA where there was a blind man playing guitar. After a while I noticed that they were Turisas tunes. Great old man. We sat there and talked all night.
