Three months and three days into 2019 and so far there’s not too much on my schedule. But with spring ahead, some really decent tours are on the horizon and some will even head my way. While US-audiences always seem to get a much bigger piece of the cake, there’s no reason to complain on my end.

Kicking off 13 days from today, Sweden’s Lucifer will cross the big pond for an extended North-American tour with very special guests Spell. Furthermore the band will join forces with The Hellacopters to glance Europe with their collective Rock’n’Roll shenanigans.

Lucifer & The Hellacopters 

13.05. Cologne, Germany, E – Werk

14.05. Hamburg, Germany, Markthalle

15.05. Berlin, Germany, Astra

16.05. Copenhagen, Denmark, Vega

And as the US will be welcoming yet another amazing tour package featuring King Dude and Maggot Heart, traveling the opposite direction, will be none other than Coven. After I missed out on their headlining appearance at Roadburn 2017 as well as the entire tour last year, I hope to finally catch of with Jinx Dawson and her fellow musicians as they return to European soil this summer.

Teaming up again this year will be Iceland’s finest The Vintage Caravan and Belgium’s very own Black Mirrors. After the first part of The Gateways tour last year, the two bands will hit the road once more throughout April and early May. Two years ago on this day, Black Mirrors released their eponymous debut EP. Their full-length followup “Look Into The Black Mirror” came out on August 30th, 2018. With their third album at hand, The Vintage Caravan will also be supporting Swedish Heavy Metal outlaws Bullet for a few selected dates.
