Ensiferum will be kicking off their 'Path To Glory' European tour shortly and Wind Rose from Italy have now been confirmed as the opening act. Ex Deo were confirmed as special guests when the tour was first announced.

The Finnish Folk Metal stalwarts will be available for meet & greets at most shows and these will be absolutely free of charge. Here's what Sami, Janne and Markus have to say about this terrific gesture to the fans.

'Path To Glory' Tour 2018 is in support of Ensiferum's sixth album, 'Two Paths', which was released last September and bassist Sami Hinkka told us when the tour dates landed:

"Greetings fellow Metalheads! With great pride, we announce our next tour, 'Path To Glory'! It's been ages since we did a tour this long and thorough all across Europe, so it's going to be a blast, night after night for weeks!

"And that's what we love to do: party hard with the craziest crowd in the world! We are gonna treat you with a special set combining new, old and rare Ensiferum hits!

"We are extremely thrilled to share the stage with the mighty Ex Deo who are returning to Europe after many years! This is going to be one hell of a tour! See you all in the moshpit!"
