German metal legends Helloween have announced they will be joined by Hammerfall for two UK tour dates in May 2022.
The reunited expanded classic line-up of German power metallers Helloween will join forces with Sweden’s Hammerfall for a European tour in the spring of 2022, finishing up with two UK dates.
Commented Hammerfall singer Joacim Cans: “Helloween is probably the band that influenced me the most growing up and I am extremely psyched about touring together with the guys. For the true metal fan, ‘United Forces 2022’ will be the ultimate metal experience.”
Said Helloween’s Andi Deris: “We are ‘hammered’ to have our friends from Hammerfall with us on tour! Back in 2002, the band produced their album ‘Crimson Thunder’ in my studio in Tenerife and we had a lot of fun back then. This mega package is delivering the appropriate metal-spectacle to enter the stage with full power!”
Helloween will release its new, self-titled album on June 18 via Nuclear Blast. The disc’s first single is ‘Skyfall’.
The “Pumpkins United” line-up features returning singer Michael Kiske and guitarist/vocalist Kai Hansen alongside current singer Andi Deris, guitarists Michael Weikath and Sascha Gerstner, bassist Markus Grosskopf and drummer Daniel Löble.
