Poland’s VADER have announced a North American tour in support of their forthcoming new album, Necropolis (out September 22nd in the U.S. and Canada). The 38-show Decibel Presents: Monsters Of Death Tour begins November 4th in Baltimore, Maryland, and also features DECREPIT BIRTH, WARBRINGER, THE AMENTA, S.W.W.A.A.T.S., and AUGURY.
VADER guitarist/vocalist, Piotr “Peter” Wiwczarek, offered some words on the tour: “Metal always was and still needs to be a brotherhood. All we were doing [in the past] to support the music and the scene was cooperating with other bands. Natural selection decides if a band is really dedicated or if it’s just an episode. Not much has changed today, actually. Even if the so-called ‘metal music business’ changed some rules, there will still be those who play with passion and those who want success. It is not us who wanna be ‘a judge,’ so we always try to tour with bands we have a good relationship with. A good time and a friendly atmosphere is important for all of us. I only hope that everybody will enjoy the tour and will come away with good lessons from it… like we in VADER always do. Deciding on a set list is always a problem. With every new album, the problem grows bigger and bigger. I decide the set list and I’m always confused. Usually, I try to mix some of old VADER hits with new stuff. The set might be different and depends on the conditions. For the upcoming tour through the USA and Canada, we’re gonna make the set slightly different from our shows in Poland and Western Europe. I also asked our fans about their favorite VADER songs. It may help me make a choice. I wish we could play all of our new songs, but it is not possible. I think we’ll do five pieces from Necropolis and mix them in with some old VADER. The veterans and also the new ‘in-VADERs’ will find something interesting for sure! After the maniacs learn the new album better, we can always add more songs.”
The Monsters of Death Tour will also mark the North American debut of VADER’s live line-up: Piotr “Peter” Wiwczarek (guitars/vocals), DECAPITATED’s Waclaw “Vogg” Kieltyka (guitars), Reyash (bass), and SOUL SNATCHER’s Pawel Jaroszewicz (drums).
