Kreator, Arch Enemy for UK tour

Kreator have confirmed a European tour at the end of the year with support from Arch Enemy, Sodom and Vader.

It includes a run of UK shows in December, although they’ll only feature the headline band and Arch Enemy.

Kreator frontman Mille Petrozza says: “In 2013 we were mainly playing for our fans overseas – we want to change that now.

“In time for the reissues of Endless Pain, Pleasure To Kill and Extreme Aggression in all kinds of formats, we’ll end the Phantom Antichrist tour cycle in Europe.

“This will be your last chance to see Kreator live in clubs for quite a while, because we’ll be busy working on a new album in 2015.”

Petrozza vows fans will be impressed by a “new multimedia stage show” and the setlist will include a “bunch of surprises.”

Arch Enemy will be showcasing latest album War Eternal, recorded with new vocalist Alisse White-Gluz, who was hired after Angela Gossow decided to concentrate on her management career.

Not only is one-time online news editor Martin an established rock journalist and drummer, but he’s also penned several books on music history, including SAHB Story: The Tale of the Sensational Alex Harvey Band, a band he once managed, and the best-selling Apollo Memories about the history of the legendary and infamous Glasgow Apollo. Martin has written for Classic Rock and Prog and at one time had written more articles for Louder than anyone else (we think he's second now). He’s appeared on TV and when not delving intro all things music, can be found travelling along the UK’s vast canal network.
