Statement about the tour by Kristian Larsen (guitars):With the World, shutting down to an extend where culture have had to take serious blows, it sadly came as no surprise that we – as so many others – also had to postpone our European tour from 2021 to 2022. We decided to take a step back, re-work our entire outfit and come back even stronger on the other side of this crazy pandemic, so the fans who have patiently waited another year for this tour to happen will get an even more optimized show from us.And here we are with just 2 months to go, before we kick off. We can’t wait to present this new and improved version of the band and the fans better prepare to get Manticorized!
