The band will be providing support for German thrash legends Kamelot on their upcoming headline European tour, beginning November 2nd in Eindhoven, Netherlands. See a full list of tour dates at bottom of page.

 Blackguard vocalist Paul Zinay comments:

 “We had a blast conquering North America with Kamelot and now it's time to conquer some new territories. We are very honoured that we were asked to join them on this tour, and we'd like to give our deepest thanks and gratitude to Thomas and all of the Kamelot crew for extending us this invitation. This will be the last tour supporting our latest album Firefight and we can't imagine ending on a higher note than this.”

Blackguard is currently in the studio completing their forthcoming album STORM, scheduled for release in the spring of 2013. They will begin a month long headlining tour starting October 7th in New York City and then join symphonic stars Epica on tour starting October 23rd.
