Ensiferum & Insomnium Euro tour to hit London

Ensiferum have announced a 2015 European tour with Insomnium and Omnium Gatherum.

The three Finnish bands hit the road in March – just weeks after Ensiferum release their sixth album One Man Army on February 23.

In a post on their Facebook page, Insomnium say: “We’ll be moshing alongside Ensiferum and Omnium Gatherum in March and April 2015 around Europe. Finnish melodeath to the max.”

Also on Facebook, Omnium Gatherum add: “We’ve already been busy touring Europe, Asia and North America after the release of Beyond but apart from that we’ve had some secret time to forge some new OG anthems in the woods too, so we’re on a good path towards the next album sessions.

“For now it’s seven songs ready and willing, nothing confirmed with the schedules and all yet, but just to say that the great days of the next chapter are coming nearer.”

The tour lands in London on March 23, when the bands will play at Islington’s O2 Academy.
