Arkona Coming To America

11/02/2011
.
Arkona are hitting the North American road for the first time, first as headliners and then as direct support for Korpiklaani.

Arkona will be touring in support of their brand-new album "Slovo," and will begin a string of headlining Canadian dates on November 11th.

They will then join up with Korpiklaani on the 25th, as they enter the United States, and then finally conclude back in Canada on December 18th.

Arkona had the following to say: "After a long absence due to endless touring worldwide and recording a new album, 'Slovo,' Arkona tours North America for the first time. Again and again, traveling thousands of miles and visiting dozens and dozens of cities, Arkona brings the 'Word' - or 'Slovo,' in Russian - to every soul which respects the legacy of their ancestors and those still-sleeping hearts which are still alive with the will of our fathers. After more than 300 concerts, two years of hard work went into our new creation 'Slovo,' which has received positive reviews worldwide, thus giving the group the ability to rise one more step up. Moreover, this tour will be celebrating the 10th anniversary of the group, which means that in addition to the presentation of new songs from the album 'Slovo,' you will get to hear classic songs from all ARKONA albums. By tradition, Arkona invites all brothers and sisters to a grand celebration!"
