Support bands announced for upcoming tour

British progressive protagonists THRESHOLD recently announced their 11th masterpiece “Legends Of The Shires”, scheduled to be released in autumn 2017, which is being produced by Karl Groom and Richard West. Furthermore, they have also announced the dates for the “Legends Of The Shires” – Tour 2017 where you’ll be able to fully experience songs from the new album on stage.

Today, the band reveals the support acts for this tour: Get ready for DAMNATION ANGELS and DAY SIX!

Richard West comments: “We’ve got two excellent bands joining us for the tour. We met DAY SIX when they supported us for a few shows back in 2011 and we’re very happy to have them back for a whole tour. DAMNATION ANGELS were a crowd favourite when they opened for us last year, so it’s great to have them back as main support for 2017.”

British symphonic metal act DAMNATION ANGELS was formed in 2006 and their most recent record “The Valiant Fire” (2014) marked their second studio album.

They comment: “We’re excited and ready for round two with our good friends THRESHOLD! The last tour was incredible, the fans were amazing and we can’t wait to return. This time playing a longer, more diverse set of our brand of symphonic metal. Let’s be ‘avin it!”

Dutch progressive rock band DAY SIX released their album “The Grand Design” in 2010 and is ready to properly present a new album on this upcoming tour.

The band states: “This is one of those rare moments in live where things just fit seamlessly: while we are scheduling studio recordings for our new album, THRESHOLD was looking for an opening act for their European tour. When? Exactly when we planned to have the new DAY SIX record finished! We are more than happy to go on tour with THRESHOLD and to be opening the shows for these wonderful guys and amazing musicians!”
