Eluveitie Announce 2020 North American Tour: NYC Dates in September

No comments

Swiss folk metal frontrunners Eluveitie will make a two-night appearance in NYC on September 28 and 29, 2020 at the Gramercy Theatre. The nine-piece last performed in the Big Apple on October 14, 2019 at the now-defunct Playstation Theater alongside Finland’s Korpiklaani.

A Nuclear Blast press release has touted the upcoming tour as a “victory lap”, celebrating the buzz around 2019’s Ategnatos. The full-length album further solidified the band’s prominence in the folk metal genre.

Vocalist and multi-instrumentalist Chrigel Glanzmann said, “Our last studio album Ategnatos perhaps was our most intuitional album and it definitely marked one of our most creative stages ever. And our last 12 months- the first half of the Ategnatos World Tour cycle- also manifested that. We were constantly evolving ourselves, refining our performance, reinventing our shows! And in that sense- and that spirit!- we cannot wait to come back to North America and to fucking prove every single word of that!”

In case you missed our coverage of last autumn’s show, here’s a taste of how it went:

“Eluveitie has experienced significant lineup changes in recent years, with several members departing to form the progressive folk group Cellar Darling. At this show, however, the current lineup gelled as if they’d been performing together since the beginning.

Additional songs they performed from the latest release included ‘Abiramus’, ‘The Slumber’, ‘Worship’, and ‘Breathe’. Eluveitie sang both in English and their native Swiss language, at one point offering the audience a choice- although the crowd cheered for both.”
