Holy Grail Tapped to Open Blind Guardian Tour // Full-Length Disc out Oct. 26th

Holy Grail Tapped to Open Blind Guardian Tour // Full-Length Disc out Oct. 26thFormed from the ashes of the original line-up of White Wizzard, Los Angeles traditional metal band Holy Grail have been generating a buzz after last year’s release of their debut EP “Improper Burial”. The band has been confirmed as direct support for Blind Guardian's fall North American At The Edge of Time tour, which kicks off on November 19th in Philadelphia, PA at the Trocadero. The tour stops at the Best Buy (aka Nokia) Theater on the 20th. Seven Kingdoms is also on the bill for the NYC show and tickets are $30 (in advance and $33 DOS).

Holy Grail frontman James Paul Luna commented, "The Holy Grail guys and I are really pumped to go out with Blind Guardian. Their new album is amazing and our new album, Crises in Utopia, will drop right before the tour begins. Blind Guardian and Holy Grail will be a killer bill!"

Crises in Utopia, Holy Grail's debut full-length album will be released on October 26th via Prosthetic Records. The new disc is produced by acclaimed producer/remixer/musician Danny Lohner (Nine Inch Nails, A Perfect Circle) and features cover artwork by Andrei Bouzikov (Skeletonwitch, Municipal Waste). Prosthetic Records is currently taking pre-orders for Crises in Utopia.
