Air guitars at the ready for the ‘Spinefarm UK Tour’!

Kiuas, Metsatöll + Celesty confirm a run of nationwide shows this October. For the first time in the label’s history, three acts signed to the Spinefarm label will embark on a series of UK shows. The Finnish 5-piece Kiuas take headlining position and will fly the flag for epic heavy metal, with the support of authentic folk metal provided by Estonia’s Metsatöll with dramatic power metal supplied by fellow Finns Celesty.

Kiuas recently released their latest album, ‘Lustdriven’, supported by the single/video ‘Of Love, Lust & Human Nature’, following hard on the heels of ‘Aio’ – Metsatöll‘s first release for the Spinefarm label. Celesty’s latest offering, ‘Vendetta’, came out in 2009, and saw the six heading deep into symphonic / progressive rock territory, with tracks such as ‘Lord (Of This Kingdom)’, ‘Like Warriors’ and first video ‘Fading Away’ showing that musical ambition doesn’t have to lead to any loss of power. Latest news from the Celesty camp is that the band have a new frontman, with previous singer Antti Railio having recently been replaced by Tony Turunen – brother of former Nightwish frontwoman, Tarja.

The full list of UK dates is as follows:-
20 Oct Wrexham, Central Station | 22 Sheffield, Corporation |
23 Glasgow, Ivory Blacks | 24 Nottingham, Basement | 26 London, Underworld | |
