FOR THE first time in the label’s history, three acts signed to the Spinefarm label will embark on a series of UK shows in tandem, flying the flag for epic heavy metal (Finnish five-piece KIUAS), authentic folk metal ( Estonian quartet Metsatöll) & dramatic power metal (Finnish sextet Celesty).
KIUAS, who have played in the UK on a number of occasions, including an appearance at the Bloodstock Open Air Festival plus a full run of dates with Firewind, will headline all of the shows, with Metsatöll providing the meat in the middle, and Celesty (who have also featured on the Bloodstock bill) opening the bill.
KIUAS recently released their latest album, Lustdriven, supported by the single/video ‘Of Love, Lust & Human Nature’, following hard on the heels of Aio’ – Metsatöll‘s first release for the Spinefarm label.

Celesty’s latest offering, Vendetta, came out in 2009, and saw the six heading deep into symphonic / progressive rock territory, with tracks such as ‘Lord (Of This Kingdom)’, ‘Like Warriors’ and first video ‘Fading Away’ showing that musical ambition doesn’t have to lead to any loss of power. Latest news from the camp is that the band now have a new frontman, with previous singer Antti Railio having recently been replaced by Tony Turunen – brother of former Nightwish frontwoman, Tarja.
The full list of UK dates is as follows:-

OCTOBER
20th – Wrexham, Central Station
22nd – Sheffield, Corporation
23rd – Glasgow, Ivory Blacks
24th – Nottingham, Basement
26th – London, Underworld
