Comments vocalist Maurizio Iacono:
“What better way to complete such an incredible and successful campaign for our latest record Of Ghosts and Gods, than being invited by IN FLAMES to do a string of dates in the States with them!
“We are excited to return to the US for a short run with IN FLAMES, coupled with a few headlining gigs and close off another chapter of our story. Right before this we will be hitting Latin America for a tour and visiting countries we have never played before such as Chile, Argentina,Uruguay, Bolivia and more. We look forward to these last two tours in support of the Ghosts… album. Catch us live and don’t miss the destructive power!“
