The time has come to polish your silverwares and raid your girlfriend’s make-up for something vaguely resembling war-paint; Finnish warriors Turisas have announced a 17-date tour of the UK and Ireland this Oct/Nov, in support of their recent album ‘Stand Up And Fight’.

This comes in addition to the previously scheduled performance at the London Forum on 11 October as part of the ‘HEIDENFEST’ package tour with Finntroll, Alestorm and Arkona.


Olli Vänskä, violinist with the band comments; “We did a similar run back in 2008 and it was a massive success. So many international bands only do a 3-4 date tours in the UK, only covering a couple of the major cities: we wanted to dig deeper and played a lot of shows also in smaller towns and cities. The audience seemed really appreciative and we had some super intense shows back then, and I’ve no doubt that this tour is going to be an exploding experience, too. It’s great to be able to return with such a good number of dates!”
