Swedish Heavy Metal titans PORTRAIT are pleased to announce a seven date tour of the UK and Ireland, in support of their recent, critically acclaimed third album “Crossroads“, reports Metal Blade Records.
Commencing in early 2015, the band will lay waste to venues the length and breadth of the country in a blaze of twin-guitar fuelled metal mayhem! Entitled “Seven Ageless Rites UK and Ireland” these shows will see PORTRAIT take their brand glorious, galloping, honest Heavy Metal to a whole new audience, and ensure that their reputation for delivering the goods in fine style will be cemented, and indeed enhanced, in the hearts and minds of UK and Irish metal fans nationwide!
