Pain Of Salvation have announced a European headline tour for later this year.

The autumn shows have been organised in support of their latest album In The Passing Light Of Day and will kick off at the Columbia Theatre in Berlin on August 31 and conclude with a show at Strasbourg’s La Laiterie on September 20.

The new dates will follow six South American shows which have been re-scheduled from earlier this year. They’ll get under way from next week, with Pain Of Salvation also due to play a handful of summer and winter shows in Europe and Russia.

Speaking about the upcoming performances in South America, the band say: “We are super thrilled to return to South America, and we are looking forward to meet all our wonderful fans there again! 

“We have secretly been playing a few songs during rehearsals that we haven’t played in a long time, and we plan to bring some of them to the stage for this trip. 

“The fans in South America always give us something special, so of course we want to return that favour, with interest.”
