While they don't release their new album Time II, and that could be a while but the plan is 2014, Wintersun have announced a North American headlining tour for this summer. The band played a series of sold-out shows last year in North America with Eluveitie and the Finns will now return for a headlining tour this August/September. Joining them are Italian symphonic death metal champions Fleshgod Apocalypse, melodic tech-death outfit Arsis and up-and-comers Starkill.

Tickets will go on sale on June 5th, that's tomorrow.

The band says: "We're thrilled to return to North America for a full-scale headliner tour in August and September! It will be our first longer own headlining tour ever and this time, without any setlist length limitations, we'll be able to offer the North American crowds a special show - representing both the Wintersun and Time I albums. There might also be some surprises in the setlist as well... We are really looking forward to sharing the live magic with YOU, all the fans out there!"

So, I'm seeing Iron Maiden in Nashville on Sept. 5, and it looks like a road trip to Charlotte, N.C., will follow the next day.

Oh yeah, that's right, still I don't really have the money for a festival :| and I've seen Enska live for like 7 times, starting to get boring

I'm rather excited for this tour. It's rare for me to enjoy more than 2 bands In a group that are touring. Wintersun, Fleshgod, and Arsis. It's going to be a night to remember.

Wintersun also played in Finland last October when Time I was released. So they play Finland plenty enough. You just have to keep track of the dates.
