Amorphis Unveil North American Tour Dates With Sylvaine + Hoaxed

Amorphis will release Halo, their 14th album, in February and two months after that, the Finnish band has set their sights on a headlining North American tour with Sylvaine and Hoaxed.

The 23-date run through the U.S. and Canada features a diverse billing as all three bands offer a unique sense of duality in their music. Amorphis have long stood as a malleable act, true to their name (but not to the spelling of 'amorphous') just as capable of discharging death-addled grooves and roars as they are at spellbinding listeners with resplendent melodies and sing-song passages.

For the Norwegian post-black metal act Sylvaine, this will be her first-ever North American tour as she supports her fourth album, Nova, which drops on March 4. Openers Hoaxed, a ghastly rock duo from Oregon, will be out touting last year's self-titled EP.

"We are more than excited to announce that we are touring North America in the Spring 2022 to support our upcoming album Halo," began Amorphis in a press statement. "We’ve been missing you, live gigs, and touring like never before! We are looking forward to the shows as well as bringing Sylvaine and Hoaxed with us as special guests. Limited amounts of Amorphis VIP packages with meet and greets are also available. We hope to see you there, meanwhile take care, stay healthy, and shine on!"

"We can't even begin to tell you how excited and honored we are to announce our very first North American shows as a part of the Halo tour, together with the great Amorphis and Hoaxed," added Sylvaine. "We've countless times been asked when we'll be playing in North America, so it's with extreme joy we share that 2022 is the year we finally make it happen! We can't wait to come play Nova for you all. April can't come soon enough!"
