Ensiferum - Announce First Ever Acoustic Tour

After performing several shows in Finland and recording a bonus Live DVD, which is available together with the recent album Two Paths, released in September, 2017 by Metal Blade Records, Ensiferum will present their acoustic show for the first time in Europe live. The tour will run from December 4th, 2018 through December 22nd, 2018. In addition to playing some songs that never have been played outside of Finland, Ensiferum will present the acoustic version of selected songs from their repertoire.

Bassist Sami Hinkka comments on tour: "Hi folks! As some of you might know, we did a bunch of acoustic gigs in Finland back in 2016 and we even recorded the last gig in Helsinki and included that as a bonus DVD for the Two Paths album. We had talked about bringing Ensiferum's acoustic spectacle abroad for years but there was never a proper time for it. This summer, airlines lost our gear twice and since we never want to cancel a show we asked the promoters to arrange us acoustic guitars so we could do on-the-spot acoustic shows instead. We had fun and the fans seemed to also enjoy them very much! So, we decided that now the time is right for our first acoustic tour outside of Finland. On this upcoming tour, we will have our dear friend Laura Dziadulewicz to sing and to play keyboards. She's also a member of the band Medeia and you might remember her from our Unsung Heroes album where she sang "Celestial Bond". Here is a link to Medeia's last video, check it out (YouTube).

"Just to tell you guys a bit more about the whole idea of these acoustic gigs. Ensiferum has always had acoustic elements and also whole acoustic songs on the albums but those have been impossible to add to traditional metal gigs. So, we decided to create a setlist that would include songs that haven't ever been played outside of Finland. Not just acoustic songs but also some very rare songs that we rearranged to fit the acoustic atmosphere. Most of the setlist will be songs that have never been heard outside of Finland, so even if you've seen us in recent years, this show will blow your mind. Partying, beer, mosh pits, singalongs & crowd surfing has always been a big part of Ensiferum's metal gigs. So how about this time? Fear not, it's not going to be a ballads-only-evening, because we also include some old hit songs that have been through an acoustic metamorphosis to keep the party spirit high. So, see you all in the acoustic mosh pit!"
