BLIND GUARDIAN Announce Late 2006 North American Tour

May 24, 2006

BLIND GUARDIAN have announced the preliminary routing for their upcoming North American tour throughout November and December in support of their new album, A Twist in the Myth, set for a September 2006 release. The BLIND GUARDIAN discography has sold over 120,000 copies in North America alone and their first-ever limited edition single debuted on the Singles Chart in 2002 by selling 5,200 copies.

Lead vocalist Hansi Kürsch checks in about the new album, the new songs, and the upcoming tour:

“As you all most probably know, we have finished the album some days ago and started doing some first shows already. With this album, I think, we have widened the range of the BLIND GUARDIAN universe more than we have ever done before. In terms of quality, we had a very good feeling during the whole recording session. Some of the new songs will be presented on the road when we will start touring. Everything and everyone is in pretty good shape. All preparations for the fall tour are on schedule and the interest in tickets for the tour is really high. One more time, we would like to thank you for your patience and can’t wait to hear and see your reaction to the new songs. As soon as there are some download samples, we will let you know. Your endurance will be rewarded.”

Between now and the launch of the U.S./Canadian tour, BLIND GUARDIAN will stay busy by hosting listening parties in Europe for their new album, shooting a video for “Another Stranger Me” (featuring new drummer Frederik Ehmke), and touring throughout Europe and Scandinavia in September and October.
