Chinese black metal band Zuriaake announce European tour. Here’s the full announcement from the band:
“Our Europe tour dates have now been confirmed. Apart from the above dates, we maybe add Austria and Hungry to the bill. More updates will follow in the next few days.
Pest Productions released new versions of our two full-length albums especially for this year’s European tour. Importantly, English translation of lyrics has been added to the new versions.
Lyrcis are, to Zuriaake, extremely important. We produce the lyrics using Chinese ancient poems and this may be quite difficult for overseas listeners to capture true meaning of the concepts that Zuriaake aim to deliver. However, a couple of friends of ours worked very hard to make sure lyrics were precisely interpreted. We hope that our fans would be able to understand what we attempt to express through the music.
We will bring the new patches, in addition to CDs, along with us for the tour. Also, new shirt “Ancient Spirit” has been printed which will appear in our merch. The classic shirt “River Metempsychosis” has also been re-printed. This one was almost not accessible to overseas fans, as it was always instantly sold out in China when it became available every time.
At last, all the members of Zuriaake have to work very hard with regular jobs since music is insufficient for us to make a living as a Chinese underground metal band. Therefore, touring Europe was absolutely incogitable to us from the perspectives of time and finance. We appreciate the support that everyone has shown since the beginning. Now spread our tour news and we look forward to seeing more of you in the front!
