Amon Amarth added this about tour : “United States! We return to your lands this spring and we will raid and plunder your little cities as we please. For the first time, we will be sailing our longships towards the curious native celebrations called ‘The Loudest Month’ (Welcome To Rockville, Northern Invasion, Carolina Rebellion and Rock On The Range) where we will sack and burn them to the ground and feast on the spoils. Our good friends in the almighty Goatwhore will be joining us on this voyage on all headlining shows. You have been warned.”
Goatwhore vocalist Ben Falgoust also added this : “We are looking forward to hitting the road with Amon Amarth and playing some raw-as-fuck metal for you people. Show up with your anger and let’s make some chaos happen. I know you all need to vent some issues. Let’s do it together and crush the opposition.”
“Jomsviking”was produced and mixed by Andy Sneap (MEGADETH, TESTAMENT, ACCEPT). The epic original story is set in the world of the Jomsvikings, the legendary order of mercenary Vikings.
Jocke Wallgren is named Amon Amarth new drummer in September. Jocke had been sitting behind the scene for all shows on the current “Jomsviking” world tour.
