After a 12-year absence from North America, Norwegian Viking metal veterans EINHERJER have announced plans to ransack the continent this spring. The band will kick off the “Dragons Over Vineland” Canadian tour, on which they’ll be supported by PANZERFAUST, in Toronto on March 15. Prior to this, EINHERJER will play a showcase at the prestigious South By Southwest festival in Austin, Texas, in addition to headlining the 2013 Heathen Crusade Metalfest in St. Paul, Minnesota. Full dates can be found below.
EINHERJER will tour in support of its acclaimed 2011 Indie Recordings debut (and fifth album overall), “Norrøn”, the first new release from the band in eight years. Recorded at Studio Borealis in the band’s home town of Haugesund, Norway and produced by vocalist/guitarist Frode Glesnes, the six-track album was mixed and mastered by Matt Hyde (SLAYER, CHILDREN OF BODOM).
