All hail the conquering metal hero, THOR, who will set sail for the Nordic lands this summer to do battle amongst the heavy metal faithful at two prestigious music festivals! The first appearance will be a headlining spot at the Muskelrock Festival in Alvesta, Sweden May 31st to June 2nd. Celebrating their 10-year anniversary, the festival plans to honor THOR with a well-earned Lifetime Achievement award in a dramatic ceremony to occur on stage during the festival. Then, our Viking hero continues on to Tampere, Finland to co-headline the South Park festival June 8 & 9 alongside fellow metal giants Ghost, Accept, Helloween and others.
But fear not, American metal fans, for after subduing those far away lands, THOR will return Stateside for a series of shows in the great state of Texas! See dates below. All of this in support of THOR’s most recent release, a brilliant unreleased album from 1979 called Electric Eyes. In fact, the band has just released its first official video from the album, a proto-metal rocker called “Special Flight,” which incorporates footage across several decades of THOR’s live appearances. A true treat indeed!
THOR show dates:
August 2nd, Club Dada, Dallas, TX
August 3rd, Barracuda, Austin, TX
August 4th, White Oak Music Hall, Houston, TX
