EPICA Announce Huge North American Tour with Lacuna Coil, Others

Dutch metallers EPICA – whose live antics we covered here and here – announced today another full-scale North American run set to kick off in September, which means this will be the band’s third trip to North America in 18 months. Last time, they brought Fleshgod Apocalypse with them for the North American Principle tour. This time, however, they’re hitting the road with an epic (no pun intended) lineup of Lacuna Coil, Insomnium Elantris for The Ultimate Principle Tour!

The tour kicks off August 31st at The Royale in Boston before making its way into Canada and out west, before turning back up the east coast and wrapping up right here in NYC at Playstation Theater on September 29th. For Lacuna Coil’s part, they were stateside in 2016 and will be back again in 2017 to rock the hell out of the US and Canada before the tour picks back up in France in November.

This tour is going to be nothing short of incredible, and we’ll work to be there when the curtain comes down on what may very well be the biggest metal tour of the year. We’ll have more for you as it’s available. Check out the tour poster and dates below.
