Following a last minute visa issue that forced the band to sit out Blackenedfest earlier this summer, Swedish black metallers MARDUK officially entered the US earlier today.
Said guitarist Morgan Håkansson from Baltimore, MD: "Finally, after so many problems and unforeseen difficulties, MARDUK has entered North America. We are exited to finally be here again. A long time has passed since our previous tour over here; the year was 2001! But now we are back and this is just the beginning of what's to come!"
The band will be performing three special dates with Withered and Black Anvil as well as a rare autograph signing at Duff's in Brooklyn, NY on Friday, August 14th from 10:00pm - 12:00am in celebration of their upcoming new full-length Wormwood.
MARDUK Confirmed Dates:
8/12/2009 Sonar - Baltimore, MD
8/13/2009 Johnny Brenda's - Philadelphia, PA
