Michael Poulsen’s death metal band Asinhell announce European tour

Author Flavia Andrade - 20.2.2024

After releasing their acclaimed debut album “Impii Hora,” Asinhell have announced a European tour for this spring/summer. Featuring Volbeat‘s Michael Poulsen, Insidious Disease‘s Marc Grewe and Raunchy‘s Morten Toft Hansen, the band will play dates that include festivals as well as small club shows. 

Support will be provided by Endseeker on all headline shows, apart from Zurich, where New Zealand outfit Alien Weaponry will be the openers and Copenhagen, where Sickomania will provide support.

Danish producer Jacob Hansen (ex-Invocator) will join the band on tour playing bass, as well as Flemming C. Lund of The Arcane Order on lead guitar, making it the same lineup that performed on the album “Impii Hora.”

Poulsen said:

It’s time to bring the Asinhell show to live (life)! Can’t wait to go out and share the metal and horns with you all. See you ghouls out there very soon.

Grewe added:

Asinhell was never planned as a live band, but after the overwhelming reactions to our debut album, ‘Impii Hora’, we all had the same impulse: ‘we have to bring the songs to the stage!’ So here we are, and it’s going to be fantastic to be sharing the stage with my good friends Michael, Morten, Jacob and Flemming. They are incredibly talented musicians, and it will be an honor for me to unfold the power of our songs full throttle in smaller clubs as well as the biggest festival stages I never dared to dream of playing… I really hope to meet a lot of you guys out there in June and enjoy a good dose of OSDM together… see ya in the pit!

Hansen shared:

I am excited to get out there and play the songs live. I’m sure the shows are gonna be full of fun and energy and it’s gonna be great to meet some of our new fans out there.
