MOONSPELL Vocalist Comments on Nocturnal Mourning Headlining Tour

June 21, 2006

MOONSPELL, Portugal’s #1 heavy metal export, are preparing to embark on their first headlining tour in five years. Vocalist Fernando Ribeiro fondly recalls, “Last time we headlined was late 2001, after the release of Darkness and Hope. The support band was LACUNA COIL on their very first American experience. We can’t wait to get back to play our own show and to underline the great ties we built in all of our tours there with our small but very dedicated fan basis. Memorial is intense live and we want our American shows to follow up what we have been doing in Europe so far.”

This is the first American tour for MOONSPELL in support of Memorial. This time around fans can expect “better and bigger production. We are finally bringing our light team with us. We will have the full strength of Memorial, the theatrics… the passion… it will all be there” enthuses Ribeiro.

Supporting MOONSPELL on the appropriately labeled, Nocturnal Mourning Tour, are KATATONIA and DAYLIGHT DIES. Ribeiro raves, “I love KATATONIA and I think they are the most brilliant band around. Dance of December Souls is still my album for the rainy days. DAYLIGHT DIES caught my attention with an advance single and since then I purchased No Reply and Dismantling Devotion to get really deeply into this band that, with a life of their own, brings me back to the glorious days of Death Doom, a style so close to my heart and soul. I believe it is a great, great package with original, individual bands that do it for the passion and for the music. The moonfest for all undergrounders!!! The Euro fans are very jealous!”
