Obsidian Kingdom have announced plans to play across Europe later this year.

The Spanish outfit were already confirmed for several festival appearances this year, but will also take part in Shining and Intronaut’s co-headline tour as special guests.

The run of dates are in support of their latest album A Year With No Summer, which was released earlier this year.

Frontman Rider G Omega says: “As much as we love making music, there is nothing we like more than playing it for you night after night, all over the world.

“We could not be happier to announce that we will be touring Europe in the unfathomable company of the frantic Norwegian jazz-metal act Shining and the LA progressive metal band Intronaut this September.”

Earlier this month, Obsidian Kingdom introduced their new guitarist Eaten Roll I. The 20-year-old – real name Irene – was brought into replace keyboardist Zero Aemeour Iggdrasil, with Seerborn Ape Tot moving to keyboard duties.
