Today, the band announced they will be heading across North America this Fall as direct support for GRAMMY-nominated power metal legends, DRAGONFORCE.

AMARANTHE's Olof Mörck comments,
So this has been a LONG time coming, in many ways! A DRAGONFORCE + AMARANTHE tour is a no-brainer since we have been friends forever, and share an affinity for catchy choruses and all-out entertainment on stage! Secondly, it has been WAY too long since we have properly toured North America! We know you guys have been waiting THREE long years since we had to cancel our tour due to the pandemic. But the wait is almost over, and we can very barely contain our excitement for this beast of a tour. See all of you wonderful North American fans this fall!
DRAGONFORCE's Herman Li states,
We're really looking forward to touring in the US and Canada again. We've prepared a new setlist with some brand-new songs that we'll be releasing before the tour begins. Alongside these, we'll also be playing some older songs that haven't been in our setlist for long time, as well as some classic favorites that are a must. It's shaping up to be a fantastic tour!
