Amaranthe detail return to UK

Amaranthe have confirmed a five-date UK tour for March next year.

They’re on the road to support third album Massive Addictive, launched this week via Spinefarm. The follow-up to 2013’s The Nexus is their first with co-vocalist Henrik ‘Scarpoint’ Englund.

Singer Elize Ryd this week discussed her struggle against sexist attitudes from metal fans, arguing that her situation was different from other women. She said: “I am one of three singers in the band. Usually, when someone has a bad comment, they put focus on me – even though there are five other guys they could have criticised.”** **

Mar 17: London O2 Academy

Mar 19: Glasgow ABC2

Mar 20: Manchester Club Academy

Mar 21: Nottingham Rescue Rooms

Martin Kielty

Not only is one-time online news editor Martin an established rock journalist and drummer, but he’s also penned several books on music history, including SAHB Story: The Tale of the Sensational Alex Harvey Band (opens in new tab), a band he once managed, and the best-selling Apollo Memories (opens in new tab) about the history of the legendary and infamous Glasgow Apollo. Martin has written for Classic Rock and Prog and at one time had written more articles for Louder than anyone else (we think he's second now). He’s appeared on TV and when not delving intro all things music, can be found travelling along the UK’s vast canal network.
