Delain add UK dates to European tour


Delain have announced a seven-date UK tour in addition to their previously-announced European dates.

Watch a trailer video below for the road trip, which supports the launch of latest album Moonbathers.

The band say: “We’ve never had so many milestone events in one year – the release of our EP Lunar Prelude, our fifth studio album Moonbathers, our upcoming 10 year anniversary celebrations. And there’s still more to come.

“All of this while playing our most heavy touring year ever. We’re on a roll, and Moonbathers is here to embody that. We hope you’ll enjoy this new effort and join us in making 2016 the biggest year for Delain ever!”

The follow-up to 2014’s The Human Contradiction was released last month. Tour support comes from Everygrey and Kobra And The Lotus. Full dates can be seen below.
