Anneke van Giersbergen's Vuur Announce Tour With Epica


Former The Gathering singer Anneke van Giersbergen has announced that her new group Vuur will be joining Epica for The Ultimate Principle tour of Europe this fall.

The tour scheduled to get underway in Krakow, Poland on November 9th at the Klub Studio and will finish up on December 3rd with a show at L'Aeronef in Lille, France.

Anneke shared her excitement about the trek: "Right after the release of our debut album this fall, Vuur will hit the road on our first European tour as direct support for the mighty Epica.

"Also part of this amazing line-up is Tunisian Progressive Metal band Myrath. We are recording the album as we speak and we really can't wait to play these songs live! We are looking forward to this tour and seeing you."

Vuur have also announced several music festival appearances this spring and summer beginning with a warm-up show in Leeuwarden on June 9th, followed by performances at the Tuska Open Air, Masters of Rock and Dynamo Metal Fest.

The group is currently working on their album at Sandlane Recording Facilities in Rijen, the Netherlands and Anneke says that the lyrics to the new songs were inspired by cities that she has visited while on tour. "For a long time I've wanted to make a kind of concept album about the cities we've visited, because we tour so much and see so many countries and cities. I often have a strong feeling for a city. It can be anything - sometimes I visualize a city as a man or a character, or sometimes something happened in that city and I want to write about that."
