Eluveitie, Insomnium, & Infected Rain Cancel North American Tour

Eluveitie, Insomnium, and Infected Rain have cancelled their North American tour due to the coronavirus pandemic. That trek was supposed to take place in September/October.

Eluveitie commented:

“Dear fellow metalheads,

You all have probably already suspected it – and it is with a heavy and bleeding heart that we have to confirm your apprehension:

Due to the current covid-19 pandemic we are now forced to cancel our upcoming North American tour.

Believe us, we are as much bummed as you are. Even more since we don’t know how long this crazy situation is going to last.

The only thing we can sincerely promise you is that we won’t give up, we won’t leave you hanging and that we will get a new North American tour up as soon as it will be possible again! And of course we’ll keep you posted on this!

And until that day we’ll do our very best to still give you as much as we can through the distance! If you’re not doing it already, please check our official social media channels as well as those of our particular band members – you’ll find a lot of worth watching stuff!

We’re with you all! Be safe!”

Insomnium & Omnium Gatherum Announce Livestream Concert

Insomnium and Omnium Gatherum will be joining forces for a special livestream concert on April 10. This news comes after their North American tour was cancelled due to the coronavirus pandemic.

The following was said in a press release:

“Insomnium & Omnium Gatherum announce exclusive live stream concert!

Finnish melodic death metal heavy hitters Insomnium and Omnium Gatherum, in cooperation with East Coast Events, AK Sound & Music Service, livevideo.fi and Framenoir, announce a very special and exclusive live streaming event, taking place on Friday, April 10th, 2020, at 18.00 CEST.

Like many other bands Insomnium and Omnium Gatherum were forced to cancel their ongoing North American tour from one day to another, which brought them into an unforeseen miserable situation.

Markus Vanhala comments on behalf of both bands: ”If someone had asked me to do a livestream with ticket sales two weeks ago, my answer would’ve been ‘hell no’. But the world changes, apparently really fast, when you’re in quarantine. Insomnium and Omnium Gatherum double trouble North American tour went pretty bad with the cancellation and the country (=WORLD!) shutting down right after we arrived at the airport to New York City…

So this is what we can offer back for now, before this tour can be rescheduled sometime next year, hopefully. After staring two weeks on the wall inside four walls at home quarantine, I have discovered a hellish urge to go back on stage and play. Even if it would be an empty hall and pose for the camera eyes only, but to play with my booyas as live in concert as we can at the moment!

With this stream production we try to help the cultural field, concert promoting, our own crew, local entertainment companies and a bit also, our poor ourselves, as cancellation of the gigs and tours destroyed our income. Thanks for the huge support to our beloved fans!”

Both bands will be playing live on April 10th, the viewer is going to be able to comment and react on the performance in real time. This offers the opportunity for the fans to react and interact during the show. During the change over the band members of both bands are available for a live chat as well.

The live stream takes place on: www.eastcoastevents.fi/streamtv
The ticket sale is already on and available on the same platform. The recording will be available for 48 hours after the live stream. (Ticket price is: 8,90€.)

Insomnium, Omnium Gatherum, & Seven Spires Cancel North American Tour

Insomnium, Omnium Gatherum, and Seven Spires have cancelled their North American tour due to the coronavirus pandemic. All tickets will be refunded.

Insomnium commented:

“With heavy hearts we inform you that we are forced to cancel this North American tour after just one show. All these government actions, bans and restrictions to fight the Corona virus are basically cancelling our shows and shutting down the country so there is nothing we can do.

We came all the way here and really tried to make this tour happen. But the situation has quickly gotten a lot worse during the last 48 hours. This is very sad and frustrating for us but also a huge financial disaster for both Insomnium and Omnium Gatherum. Right now we don’t know how we can continue.

All tickets will be refunded. Please contact the place where you bought your ticket.

Once we get home we will think about how we can salvage the financial situation of both bands. We will try to come up with some sort of fundraising campaign or something. We are going to need the help of our fans. If we can get past these difficult times we will try to make this same tour happen again in the future.

Stay safe, wash your hands, stay calm.

Insomnium & Omnium Gatherum“

Insomnium Premiere “Pale Morning Star” Lyric Video

Insomnium have premiered a lyric video for their new song “Pale Morning Star.” This track is from the band’s new album “Heart Like A Grave,” which will be released on October 4. Markus Vanhala commented:

“‘Pale Morning Star‘ was born as a short folky acoustic piece of mine – before it grew and exploded all over the place. I call this piece a miniature version of ‘Winters Gate‘ as it contains a somehow similar wintry and grim feel of that opus, supercharged to only 9 minutes. It’s presenting again a bit different side of the new album.”

Insomnium Premiere “Valediction” Video, Announce North American Tour With Omnium Gatherum & Seven Spires

Insomnium have premiered a new video for their new song “Valediction.” This track is from the band’s new album “Heart Like A Grave,” which will be released on October 4. The group commented:

“When the album theme is to dive deep into the black waters of Finnish melancholy, then Vesa Ranta is truly the right man to visualize the story. Album booklet is crafted from Vesa’s epic landscape photos and these same themes continue in the two videos that we shot at Koli national park. Woods and lakes, sorrow and longing. That’s the heart of Insomnium.”
