After successfully headlining the North American "PaganFest" tour this past Spring, battle metallers Turisas will once again return to the States in February/March 2013 for a headlining tour featuring Firewind and Stolen Babies as special guests!

In regards to the trek, the band comments: "Back to America straight out of the studio! We've spent the last six months off the road writing some new killer tunes and are just about to start recording them as we speak. The great memories from our previous tour last spring is making us even more excited to hit the road again after this long break. We're coming up with new cool and crazy ideas for this tour, and who knows, maybe we'll even try out and premiere some completely unreleased new material. One thing is certain, after 9 months off the road there'll be some serious energy to be released on stage! Serve us your weakest piss-light beer! We'll take it! America here we come!"

Hailing from Finland, Turisas is currently finishing work on their latest studio album, which they are looking to release in summer 2013. See below for a list of tour dates (with more to be announced soon!):
