KARHU Management has issued as follows:
KARHU‘s 2013 tour can finally be announced. A string of 17 dates will see them performing their own brand of Progressive Metal across the UK from 10th to 26th May. London, Manchester, Leeds, Birmingham, Sheffield, Bristol and Gloucester are just a few of the UK cities and towns that will be experiencing ‘The Karhu Groove’.
Following on from the enthusiastic reception of their 2012 tour, the band have changed the management team and gone full steam ahead into the tasks of band promotion. The first album Survival of the Richest has been polished up with improved vocal and guitar parts, remixed and mastered, with a DVD including a couple of bonus tracks and a Documentary to accompany the CD. Magazines, festivals and Record Labels can keep an eye out for that before its release date of May 3rd.
The UK element of the band which now includes Hampshire based Jake Archer is rehearsing through March and April. Finnish guitarist and growling vocal, Osku Kinnunen, flies in the week before the tour to polish up the performance.
Karhu’s Manager ‘The Glove’ said “We would like to thank all the Promoters and Agents that have been involved in the setting up of the ‘Reality 2.0 Tour 2013′. Due to the costs involved in flying Osku in from Finland, the band has not been able to make use of the Battle of the Bands route to recognition within the British Metal Music Industry. We are grateful that some of the UK’s Promoters have taken a chance on Karhu and given the band a fantastic opportunity to play to the Metal Heads of this great Island.”
The band have also put together their own record label ‘The Karhu Groove Ltd’ and a sister company ‘Great Bear Promotions Ltd’ for the touring side of the business. Joseph Parry, clean vocalist and guitar, said “The response from the fans is one of pure enthusiasm. We had a great time touring in 2012 and aim to take the band and it’s music to anywhere the fans want it.”
Various bands will be joining the shows including, TYRANT, DISFRACTURE, HEADSTONE DOWN, FORBEAR and Italian hard rock EASTER BEFORE CHRISTMAS will be teaming up for a couple of dates, to name a few. The gig will be streamed live from the Snooty Fox on the 22nd May, check out http://www.snootyfoxlive.com/ so all you fans around the world can be there!
