Supporting bands for Turisas’ UK headline dates: Chthonic (TW) and Kiuas (FIN)

We are pleased to announce the support bands for the upcoming UK headline tour, which will start on 27 October 2011.

Violinist OLLI VÄNSKÄ: “We’re glad to be able to announce what we feel is a really strong support package for the UK shows – both bands have been to the UK before but probably haven’t yet had the exposure they deserve – we’ll try to change that! Make sure you get down to the shows early to experience something a little bit different!”

The support bands will be cult Taiwanese metallers CHTHONIC, plus fellow Finns KIUAS. The tour consists of 17 dates, including 2 co-headline gigs with Devin Townsend Project and appearance at Leeds’ Damnation Festival. The dates on the tour are as follows:
