Threshold reveal Legends Of The Shires tour dates


Threshold have announced a run of winter European tour dates in support of their upcoming 11th album.

Titled Legends Of The Shires, it’s scheduled to be released later this year via Nuclear Blast, with the band playing 12 shows in November and December.

Theshold keyboardist Richard West says: “We’ve got two excellent bands joining us for the tour. We met Day Six when they supported us for a few shows back in 2011 and we’re very happy to have them back for a whole tour.

“Damnation Angels were a crowd favourite when they opened for us last year, so it’s great to have them back as main support for 2017.”

The band launched live album European Journey last year, which followed 2014 studio title For The Journey.

Frontman Damian Wilson said on its release: “We’ve become really good friends – we care a lot about each other and we’ve become really close. So we thoroughly enjoy making music together.”
