Firewind Announce Frets of Fury North American Tour

Ozzy Osbourne's new guitarist Gus G's other group Firewind have announced their first ever headlining North American tour, dubbed the "Frets of Fury."

This tour kicks off on October 9th and also features Arsis, White Wizzard and Nightrage.

Gus G. states: "We couldn't be happier to announce our first full North American tour! It's been over three years since FIREWIND toured from coast to coast across the U.S. and we're coming back stronger than ever with a killer package. We put a lot of thought into who we wanted to go out with us and truly believe that each band on this bill brings something special to the table making this a very diverse line-up. However, shredding guitar driven metal remains the prominent feature across the board.
"In fact there's more to it than just that, as this package is somewhat of a musical family tree. Not many people know this but Arsis' guitarist James Malone and I went to Berklee together back in 1998. We had an instrumental band together for awhile, which later became FIREWIND. James is a kick ass shredder and I'm glad our bands are finally touring together.

"Also, most people don't know that I played in Nightrage for few years. I did two albums with them and their main-man Marios Iliopoulos is a phenomenal guitar player. He also filled in on bass for FIREWIND this year, when Petros was unable to tour. Nightrage is one of my favorite bands and you definitely got to come down early to check them out. White Wizzard are currently making noise worldwide and they're definitely a band to watch out for as well. We're proud to have these great bands on board with us, making this such a high quality package for all metal fans."

No Dates were provided with the announcement.
