After recently revealing details on their upcoming second album, Finish Occult Rockers JESS AND THE ANCIENT ONES have just announced that they accepted KING DIAMOND’s offer to join him on the US tour this fall.

JATAOStated KING DIAMOND: “KING DIAMOND would like to welcome JESS AND THE ANCIENT ONES as the opening act for the North American tour this fall. The occult rock group from Kuopio, Finland, was personally selected by King Diamond himself to be the openers on the tour.”

Commented the bands’ record label Svart Records: “There are two rather important matters happening in the JESS AND THE ANCIENT ONES camp this fall. First, the band are supporting KING DIAMOND on his North American tour in October and November. JATAO also have recorded two new songs, which will be released on November 15th on ten inch vinyl. Read the official transmission from the band headquarters below and stream the song Castaneda right here.”

Commented JATAO: “A path is only a path, and there is no affront, to oneself or to others, in dropping it if that is what your heart tells you . . . Look at every path closely and deliberately. Try it as many times as you think necessary. Then ask yourself alone, one question . . . Does this path have a heart? If it does, the path is good; if it doesn’t it is of no use. Thus spoke Castaneda, and what wise words they are. Written thoughts can sometimes make a profound impact upon others, even though they are rarely found. Music holds the same power. We see our art as a path to eternity’s veil, a place where the notes we play echo in infinite artistic freedom. Where we feed our minds and thus draw strength to our mundane lives. It keeps us sane, and throws colors to our personal growth. We are alive once again, and it brings great joy to our hearts, when we transmit our sonic waves into your minds as well. Hope you all find what you are searching for…
