The band have been enlisted as direct support to Faroese Viking Metallers Týr on their upcoming tour this May along with support from Ghost Ship Octavius and Aeternam. Stay tuned for dates to be announced in the coming weeks.

Orphaned Land mastermind and frontman Kobi Fahri tells us:

"We are so excited to be back to the USA, following our just released new album! Make sure you visit us on the road and check our new tunes! Who knows when we will be back next!"
