LEAVES' EYES — the German/Norwegian band formed by ex-THEATRE OF TRAGEDY singer Liv Kristine Espenaes Krull and members of ATROCITY — will support KAMELOT on their upcoming European tour in March/April 2010.
Commented Liv Kristine: "I am really looking forward to tour with KAMELOT again! The last tours with KAMELOT were very successful for both bands and the friendship between the bands is great! Being on the road with other Norwegians is, of course, always an honour and pleasure for me! Roy [Khan, KAMELOT frontman] is both an excellent singer and a fine person."
Added Alexander Krull: "It's great that we go on tour with our friends KAMELOT again! This upcoming European tour will be truly a highlight for every fan of dark, symphonic metal music! We can't wait until March when we'll start to conquer the stages across Europe again with this strong tour package! We will perform new material of the album 'Njord' as well as songs from the previous records!"
