Finnish Battle Metal masters TURISAS proudly announce their first ever tour in Latin America. The band will play seven shows in March 2013, including dates in Mexico, Costa Rica, Colombia, Argentina, Chile and Brazil.
Straight from the studio, vocalist Mathias “Warlord” Nygård comments: “So it is finally happening then! We’ve been waiting for the chance to do these shows in Latin America for a very long time, and we couldn’t be more excited about this announcement. During the last couple of years, whenever we’ve posted anything – I mean anything – on Facebook, one of the first comments has always been ‘Come to Chile’ – and well, now we’re really coming to you! We love that dedication and believe that these shows will be very rewarding indeed. Brothers and sisters, get ready for one hell of a party!”
