Portuguese dark metal pioneers MOONSPELL are proud to announce their upcoming Latin America tour for April 2018! After last year’s cancellation beyond the band’s control, MOONSPELL will finally return to South America while kicking off on April 22nd in Bogotá, Colombia.
Says vocalist Fernando Ribeiro:
“We consider this a fresh start after last year’s events and want all our wolves and witches in South America to know we will be coming back more often for you and will present you with one of the best shows that MOONSPELL ever had on the road, as witnessed by thousands already in Europe. We will be showcasing our new album 1755, on a show that mixes Theatre and Music as well as revisiting our classics and albums in between for the delight of the loudest crowds on earth: Colombia, Chile, Brazil, Argentina and Mexico, brace yourselves, the earth will shake!!! Under the spell!”
MOONSPELL‘s brand new and 13rd studio album titled 1755, has been successfully released on November 3rd 2017 with Napalm Records. 1755 marks the year of the horror when a giant earthquake destroyed the band’s hometown and city of Lisbon. Almost 100.000 souls lost their lifes, and this tragic event still belongs to one of the disastrous catastrophes in European history and nature. From the first second, the conceptual dramaturgy of MOONSPELL‘s new album feels like a detonation of the mind. Playful and mean-spirited. 1755 is their magnum opus, a musical masterpiece and the dark adventure into medieval times. Produced by Tue Madsen (Meshuggah, The Haunted, Dark Tranquility, Dir En Grey, Die Apokalyptischen Reiter), naturally this album is sang completely in portuguese and will outclass all standards you have ever heard from MOONSPELL before: Emotional, technical and completely earthshaking!
