Notorious Swedish black metal collective WATAIN will join forces with equally infamous Norwegian black metal legends MAYHEM for a tour through North America, aptly labeled "The Sanguine Sodomy Of North America", starting on March 7, 2022. They will be supported by U.S. blackened speed metal punks MIDNIGHT.
WATAIN and MAYHEM issued the following statement: "MAYHEM and WATAIN are delighted to announce that what is to become known in history as the sanguine sodomy of North America is set to take place in the spring of 2022, with both our bands at the helm and with the infamous MIDNIGHT joining us as special guests. We hereby invite all of our North American friends and foes to celebrate the return of Darkness and Evil to your lands, and to join us in what is destined to become one legendary Hell of a tour!"
