Kataklysm, Soilwork, and Wilderun To Embark on a Nearly Three-Month European Tour


With all the talk lately about bands being unable to tour Europe because of rising costs and a lack of tour buses, today’s announcement that Kataklysm and Soilwork will be heading out on a massive tour through the continent for nearly three months sounds like wishful thinking. Add in a third supporting band with WIlderun joining the mix and you’ve got a fairy tale.

But it’s not a fairy tale and not a dream. For roughly three months, those three bands are going to be screaming all over Europe, each supporting their respective latest studio releases after COVID fucked eveyrthing up for a couple years.

Kataklysm frontman Maurizio Iacono said the band was very much looking forward to making the trip from Canada to Belgium to start the tour on February 3, 2023.

“We are excited to announce that we are finally returning to Europe. We look forward to support our latest album Unconquered, which we didn’t have the chance to do, due to the pandemic. We will be visiting the four corners of Europe with our friends in Soilwork, We are energized, determined and ready to bring the Kataklysm impact to Europe once again. This promises to be an incredible night of metal anthems, see you there!”

Similarly, the band Soilwork said they were excited to take Övergivenheten out on the road. Though they don’t have to travel very far as a Swedish band to start an European tour, it will be their longest European tour since losing their guitarist David Andersson, who passed away at 47 years old this past September.

“We look forward to take Övergivenheten out on the European roads in February and April 2023. We are currently touring the new album in Australia and the response is just out of this world. Övergivenheten means so much to us as a band, so we simply cannot wait to bring it to our European fans.”

Speaking of Övergivenheten, we still have some copies of the killer white ocean blue splatter vinyl variant over on the MetalSucks store. Be sure to check that out if you want to familiarize yourself with the music before catching the band live.
