Kvelertak Announce North American Dates with Cancer Bats and Black Tusk

Kvelertak Announce North American Dates with Cancer Bats and Black Tusk
As previously reported, hard-rocking Norwegian metal outfit Kvelertak are getting ready for the March 26 release of their Roadrunner Records-backed Meir. Now the band have announced they'll head our way to support the set with a North American tour.

Kvelertak cross over to our continent in late April for their appropriately titled "Meir Tour," a month-long trip that sees them joined by both Canadian metal/hardcore crew Cancer Bats and Savannah, GA trio Black Tusk. As for the Canadian portions of the trip, all three acts will bring their horns-raising A-game to Vancouver's Rickshaw Theatre on April 5, while Kvelertak hit Montreal on May 21 and Toronto on May 22, though without Cancer Bats. You can see the details down below.

Meir follows Kvelertak's 2011 self-titled debut album. The new LP was recorded with Converge guitarist Kurt Ballou at his GodCity studio in Salem, MA. You can peep the video for lead single "Bruane Brenn" beneath the tour dates.
