ABSOLVA announce their first tour dates for 2015, returning to Sound Control for a hometown Manchester show on 22nd February to begin the UK shows, before travelling to Germany, Belgium, France, Netherlands, Poland and Czech Republic. The tour this time takes the title "In Some Wild Universe" from the "Anthems To The Dead" album.
Chris Appleton says "We're very lucky to be able to add my brother LUKE APPLETON of ICED EARTH on 2nd guitar for these tour dates. With drummer Martin already shaping a formidable rhythm section with bassist Karl, the prospect of adding Luke's quality and precision on guitar is too good to miss. I'd like to record once again my sincere thanks to JON SCHAFFER of ICED EARTH for giving us his blessing".

Chris adds.... "A new setlist is being put together for 2015 which will include songs from "Flames Of Justice" and "Anthems To The Dead" but also some brand new songs which the band is currently working on. Writing has begun towards a 3rd studio album in 2015 and we're very happy to say Luke will be co-writing which is a mouth-watering prospect".
