Arch Enemy - Announce Japanese Tour 2012


Arch Enemy have confirmed a long-awaited headlining tour of Japan, scheduled for April 2012.

Michael Amott comments: "It's not a very well guarded secret that Japan has been like a second home for Arch Enemy since we first started touring there in 1997. So it is with great joy and excitement that we are returning to celebrate the success of our Khaos Legions album and play some great shows for our Japanese fans!"

"All these four Japan shows will be special and unique, but none more so than the Yokohama Blitz show on April 14, where we'll be performing our Wages Of Sin (2001) album in its entirety... We haven't done a full tour of Japan since 2008 (which we documented on the Tyrants Of The Rising Sun' DVD & double live album). After our performance at Japan's Loud Park 2011 event last month, we are more than eager to get back and have fun with some of the craziest metal fans on the planet! See you in April!"

Arch Enemy: Japanese Khaos 2012:

April 13th 2012 - Shibuya Ax - Tokyo
April 14th 2012 - Yokohama Blitz, Yokohama

I also like this trend of performing albums in their entirety, hope I'll catch some of those events in the future.

I have caught a few myself. Porcupine Tree's The Incident is the last one I can remember. It's a great experience for fans. Bands should do it more.

I think I'll go to that show, only 40 min from here. Don't really like WoS (would prefer AoR or BB), but it's better than the new stuff at least!

Lucky I'm fine with all the albums except for Khaos Legions seriously. That was really disappointing. Doomsday Machine would be a fun album to play in its entirety live. I would dig that.

True. I hope they start getting their mojo back because it looks pretty dark at the moment and not in a good way. Hopefully something will happen and they'll stop trying to release these pseudo-songs.

Actually, I didn't despise Khaos Legions or the album before that (DM is pretty awesome at times as well, I agree!), it's just that it kinda feels been there done that. I'm sure they slay live though, the new songs as well.

What, does Angela's mom live in Japan or something? Every album has a special edition Japanese release, and they always manage to end up touring in Japan. Or maybe there's a better chance to make money there since the population is so immense.
