KREATOR & DIMMU BORGIR Announce European Co-Headlining Tour

German thrash titans KREATOR and Norwegian symphonic black metal giants DIMMU BORGIRhave teamed up for a big European co-headlining run in winter 2018.

The tour will take place from November 30 - December 16 with support coming from US hardcore institution HATEBREED and death metal supergroup BLOODBATH.

Commented KREATOR frontman Mille Petrozza: 
I am more than excited to team up with three of the strongest and most unique bands in today's metal world for this killer package. For this run, we have prepared the biggest production in the history of the band to bring the ultimate KREATOR-experience to a hall near you. The European Apocalypse will be THE tour of 2018, and I can`t wait to see all of you in December. Hail to the Hordes!"

Added DIMMU BORGIR guitarist Silenoz: 
"It feels great to announce that we’re finally touring Europe again! It’s been a while, but we can’t wait to share the Eonian energy with our fans - see you all in November and December!"

Stated HATEBREED singer Jamey Jasta:
 “We're honored & excited to share the stage with such influential and important bands. In a world where everyone seems so divided, it‘s important for heavy music to unify & inspire. This tour has something for everyone! Death, Black, Thrash, and Crossover. Prepare to rage, see you in the pit!”

BLOODBATH guitarist Anders Nyström comments: "We‘re honored to be chosen to represent the death metal department in a versatile bill of thrash metal, black metal and hardcore!"
