Amon Amarth have announced a tour with Dark Tranquillity and Omnium Gatherum in spring 2017.

The band will be promoting their latest album Jomsviking on the forthcoming dates, while fellow Swedes Dark Tranquillity will support their new record Atoma on the trek.

The dates can be found in bold below.

Amon Amarth say: “We are having so much fun on our current European tour we decided we needed to come back and to do it again! We are definitely looking forward to playing some new places.

“This time we will continue the fun and lay waste to the Netherlands, Germany, Italy, Austria, France and Spain with Dark Tranquillity and Omnium Gatherum. The shows will be fantastic, beer soaked nights of heavy metal.

“We look forward to seeing our crazy berserker fans, and we warn you to get ready to fight, pillage and raise your horns.”

Amon Amarth were recently announced as Friday night headliners for Bloodstock 2017 next August – and frontman Johan Hegg said he can’t wait to return to the birthplace of their “Viking rowing” ritual favoured by their fans.

Hegg said: “It’s great that we’re going to be back at Bloodstock. I love it there, it’s a fun festival to play. We always had a great time there, always had a great crowd.

“And of course that is where the ‘epic Viking rowing’ was invented, so that will always have a special place in our hearts.”

Amon Amarth are currently on the road in Europe.
