Germany’s finest progressive death metal band Obscura and German melodic death/doom metallers Nailed To Obscurity are proud to announce their “North American Moment Tour” with headliners Dark Tranquility.

The 46-date date trek will kick off on September 2, 2021 in Reading, PA. It will make stops in Toronto, Minneapolis, and Dallas before concluding on October 19, 2021 in New Bedford, MA.

Obscura ‘s Steffen Kummerer states, “Obscura is coming back to North America! This time, we share the stage with veteran, Swedish death metal band Dark Tranquility. Supported by death-doom act and label-mates Nailed To Obscurity, we will perform across the United States and Canada. Don’t miss the North American Moment Tour; secure your tickets, and be part of the shows!”

Nailed To Obscurity comments, “We are super stoked to be part of this amazing tour package! It will be the first time ever for us to play in the U.S. and Canada, and we can’t wait to hit the road with these amazing bands and people. Now, let’s all keep our fingers crossed that this tour can happen next year, so we can all experience the joy of a concert and live music again!”

“It’s hard to even imagine this happening,” says Dark Tranquility, given the global pause on touring due to the COVID-19 pandemic. “But, I really hope so, and it’s going to be very, very awesome. It’s been a while, and it will be a while still, but we’re coming back to America. Obscura and Nailed To Obscurity will be with us, and we cannot wait to hit the stages with these awesome bands and see you all again. Let’s make sure things get back to normal and that this can happen. We miss you and cannot wait to get to share our music with you again.”
