Norwegian prog metallers Enslaved have announced a joint headline US tour with Finnish melodic death metal band Insomnium for April. Support comes from US metal band Black Anvil.

The tour takes place just after the release of Enslaved's upcoming new album Heimdal which will be released through Nuclear Blast records on March 3.

"Neither you nor we will believe how much we are looking forward to coming back to the US of A and Canada in April 2023," enthuses Enslaved's Ivar Bjørnson. "We have a new album (and more if you want to be technical), Heimdal, to show you - spoiler alert: it will lay venues waste. Yes, we are that confident. We also have some rather cosmically awesome (!) bands joining the trek in co-headliners Insomnium and support Black Anvil - how could this become anything but the most spectacular event of 2023?"

Enslaved will also be appearing at Denmark's Winter Metal Magic festival in February, Incineration in the UK in May and at Mexico Metal fest in November
