On June 5, Kreator will be releasing their 13th studio album Phantom Antichrist via Nuclear Blast Records. Before that, though, the legendary German thrash group will be releasing the title track and their cover of Iron Maiden’s “Number Of The Beast” as a 7”colored vinyl and a digital download. While the 7” is already sold out, the single will be released in all digital outlets on April 20. And yesterday, Nuclear Blast released a snippet of “Phantom Antichrist,” which can be heard in the video above.
But that’s not the only good news that popped up this week for Kreator fans. As it turns out, Kreator will be touring North America this Fall with another classic German metal group, Accept. According to Lambgoat, support for the trek may or may not come from Kittie. While that would certainly be an odd choice for an opener, Kreator and Accept would make one hell of a touring combo.
An official announcement about the tour has yet to be made. However, three dates that have been leaked so far can be seen after the jump.
9/10 Quebec, QC @ the Imperial
9/16 Kansas City, MO @ The Beaumont Club
10/1 Dallas, TX @ Trees
