We Are The Catalyst have confirmed their first-ever UK headline tour - taking place immediately after the Delain support slot they won via Metal Hammer.
They’ll play 13 shows during October and November after their appearance at Bloodstock earlier this year that led to the contest win.
Frontwoman Cat Fey says: “The UK is fast becoming a second home for us. We are so excited to be coming back for our first headline tour – and we can’t wait to open in Birmingham for the mighty Delain, who personally picked us for the show.”
Guitarist Kristoffer Andersson adds: “The UK crowds love their metal, and there’s nothing like playing to audiences who really know their music.”
We Are The Catalyst continue to support debut album Monuments, released in May.
