Swedish Metallers The Quill will be touring North America for the first time ever this March. The West Coast jaunt will start on March 7th in Seattle, Washington and wind up on March 16th in Fresno, California.
The Quill are out supporting their latest album, 'Full Circle', which was released in 2011 on Metalville Records. Bassist Robert Triches commented on the band's first North American tour: "To go to the US on tour is nothing less than a dream come true for us. We know we have a faithful fan base there and to finally get the chance to meet that audience live, after all these years is... fantastic! It's gonna be magical!

"We're really happy with where this tour takes us, although we see it as a modest first beginning of touring in the US. We aim to follow this up with many more tours and visits over the next few years. Love and respect and see you soon!"
Five years since their last studio album, The Quill are now in a perfect position to take this new material further afield... The band is truly ready to once again spread its musical gospel. The new album 'Full Circle' is packed with heavy rock firmly rooted in the seventies but vibrant and updated rather than retro, and The Quill is a band reborn. This is what they are meant to do. Great music and great shows will always find an audience.
