Press release:

Arch Enemy are excited to be making their much anticipated return to North America in May with what could well be hailed as one of the best guitar-shredder packages of the year. This headlining tour, presented by ESP Guitars, Randall Amps, Guitar World and Revolver Magazine, dubbed. Tyranny and Bloodshred 2008, takes off on May 10th and as well as the headliners features the awesome yet diverse talents of Dark Tranquillity, Divine Heresy and Firewind.

The sensational twin guitar attack of brothers Michael and Christopher Amott created the blueprint for modern day shredding and they continue to raise the bar with each release. The young Greek guitar god Gus G. adds to this dynamic with his flamboyant speed and precision. The renowned Dino Cazares whose lightning-fast speed picking and riffing made Fear Factory world beaters and last but by no means least the dark and sinister spells of Niklas Sundin and Martin Henriksson who have consistently led the melodic death metal field. This package is tailor made for those who crave supersonic shredding, sublime solos, technical precision and relentless riffing.

Michael Amott of Arch Enemy further comments on the upcoming tour: “Everyone in the Arch Enemy camp is looking forward to returning to North American soil to play these headline dates! We had a blast on the co-headline stint last year with Machine Head and this is looking like it’s going to be another tour de force! Also, it feels great to come back to the US and Canada with such a killer package – something with some substance and musical credibility. We’ll be digging deeper into the Rise Of The Tyrant album and also playing a few things we’ve never performed for our US fans before! A lot of exceptional talent on this bill for sure – I urge everyone to come early and check out all the bands - ‘cos otherwise you’ll be missing out big time! Tyranny And Bloodshred is here."

Niklas Sundin of Dark Tranquillity states: “We're very pleased to let our growing hordes of US fans know that we'll once again return to your shores to serve you in metal. Starting in the beginning of May, we'll head out as main support for our long-time buddies in Arch Enemy. It'll be a powerful and diverse package that will satisfy everyone.”

Dino Cazares of Divine Heresy states: “I'm excited that Divine Heresy will be in such good company on our fourth North American tour. Between Mike Amott and Dark Tranquillity, you have two architects of modern extreme metal -- and not to sound egotistical, but I like to think that I've helped to influence that sound as well. This will be our first domestic touring with European metal bands, and we know they'll deliver the goods and keep us on our toes, but we look forward to proving once again that this threat is real.”

Gus G. of Firewind states: “I'm so happy that Firewind gets to return to North America as a part of this package! It’s very versatile, with really good bands on the bill. Personally speaking, I'm happy for the fact that I'll get to tour with Arch Enemy again. It was a blast playing with them in 2005 and Michael Amott and Co. are such great musicians and people. I have a lot of respect for them. We will give the fans a really intense setlist as we present material from our new album, The Premonition, for the first time.”

This tour marks Arch Enemy’s second North American visit in support of their highly successful album, Rise Of The Tyrant. Since their last visit in October they have seen extensive touring action throughout Europe, Japan, SE Asia and Australia.
