Amon Amarth say: “We cannot wait to return to Europe and tour the UK with our fellow Swedish Berserkers Arch Enemy and Hypocrisy. We will be bringing our biggest headlining show yet and this truly is going to be an epic heavy metal party that is not to be missed.”

Arch Enemy guitarist Michael Amott adds: “I can’t think of a better way to wrap up an intense and exciting 2019 touring year than heading back to the UK with our Swedish friends Amon Amarth and Hypocrisy.

“This will be a celebration of everything that is awesome about heavy metal, the Scandinavian way.”

Hypocrisy’s Peter Tägtgren says: “Hypocrisy are very much looking forward to this UK run and to share the stage with Amon Amarth and Arch Enemy. This will be epic.”

Tickets for the tour will go on sale from 10am local time tomorrow (June 18).
