Portuguese dark metal giants MOONSPELL, who just released their highly acclaimed, 13th studio album Hermitage via Napalm Records, have announced to join PARADISE LOST on their 2022- UK tour! While the world is waiting to see the return of live shows, there is probably no better way to celebrate a 30th band anniversary like MOONSPELL will while being back on the road next year.
Following on from both latest releases, PARADISE LOST’s magnum opus Obsidian in May 2020 and MOONSPELL’s exceptional epos Hermitage, will finally see this high class band package bring their masterpieces live on stage in February 2022. Today, the British gothic metal legends announced their “Obsidian Moon” tour, featuring longtime friends and Portuguese gothic metal titans MOONSPELL as special guests.
PARADISE LOST frontman Nick Holmes says:
“We’re looking forward to doing a full UK tour again and playing some long-awaited shows in support of ‘Obsidian’, and who better to bring along for some of the ride than our old friends from Portugal, Moonspell?
Thanks to you all for your continued support during these crazy times, and we hope to see you there. Until then, stay safe and stay well. Cheers, x!”

It was released on February 26, 2021 through Napalm Records.
