Finnish prog metal sextet Amorphis and Swiss folk metal band Eluveitie have added more dates for their upcoming European and UK tour in November and December.

New dates have been added in Switzerland, Spain, Finland and Austria. Both bands are joined on all dates by Dark Tranquility and Nailed To Obscurity.

"We're happy to announce the remaining shows of our European co-headlining tour with Eluveitie," enthuses Amorphis guitarist Esa Holopainen. "Both bands have shared the same stages at festivals in the past and it's a great pleasure to do a whole tour together now. Eluveitie founder Chrigel Glanzmann has even played on our Under The Red Cloud and Queen Of Time albums, so the musical bondage is absolutely perfect. After our friends from Dark Tranquility and Nailed To Obscurity have been confirmed for this tour, it's needless to say that this line-up is beyond epic."

"It hasn't exactly become lighter in this world lately.," adds Eluveitie's Chrigel Nonetheless, there are still pleasant and joyful news: we can't wait to finally start touring again after more than two really weird years. It almost feels unreal! As if this wasn't enough, we're super stoked to announce the complete line-up for this tour which is definitely one of the coolest packages of our entire career. Being on the road together with dear friends and some of our personal all-time favourite bands: that's really just more than I expected - we can't wait to see you all again!"
