Finnish heavy metal giants BATTLE BEAST will make their long awaited return to North America in early 2022 in support of their upcoming record “Circus of Doom,” which will be released on January 21st from Nuclear Blast.
The band will share the stage with DRAGONFORCE and will join the tour beginning March 20th in Denver, CO through April 23rd in Berkeley, CA, with a stop at the Commodore in Vancouver on March 13th.
Commenting on the tour, vocal powerhouse Noora Louhimo states:
”Battle Beast is coming to you sounding and looking better than ever before! We are very excited to unite our forces with Dragonforce for a North America tour. I think this will be an epic combination of heavy metal energy and our fans will be getting 300% of explosive entertainment with our new album ”Circus of Doom” let loose on stage. Get ready to be mesmerized with high screams, new horns and new Battle Beast.”
BATTLE BEAST’s eagerly awaited 6th studio album, “Circus of Doom,” features 10 tracks that blend true heavy metal with pop and rock-vibes, paired perfectly with Louhimo’s inimitable voice. “Our goal was to make an interesting and absorbing album, with both lighter party songs and heavier stuff as well. In a way the whole album is like a joyful day at the circus. Full of enchanting surprises and wild carnival atmosphere,” explains keyboardist Janne Björkroth.
The band just revealed a stunning music video for the first single, “Master of Illusion,” directed by Markus Nieminen, that you can watch here:
In addition to the single release, the band also recently kicked off the physical pre-order for “Circus of Doom.”
Since their 2011’s debut album “Steel,” BATTLE BEAST have achieved over 200 million digital streams. Alongside the huge #1 success of their last three albums in the album charts of their home country, Finland, their last album “No More Hollywood Endings” (2019) reached a remarkable #11 in German album charts.
