In an announcement, the band said, "The winds of darkness blow again! In May, we will head out on the Agony & Ecstasy Over Europe tour, taking us into the South and Eastern regions of Europe as well as a few selected off shoots. The dates also include Watain's first show ever in Makedonia as well as in Rome, Italy. As special guests we have again invited the mighty Swiss power duo Bolzer to set the mood with their serene invocations of primordial force. Furthermore we will also be joined by Concrete Winds, a band that during the past years have taken the underground by storm with their mutant form of unhinged brutality, something that has to be heard and seen to be fully comprehended. 16 wild nights of metallic ecstasy in honor of the Devilgod awaits, and we call for you all to join us!"

Watain will rattle off 16 shows between May 4 and May 21, barely pausing for a breather in between dates. You know what they say: no rest for the wicked! You can check out all confirmed dates below. Tickets will be on sale locally on February 6.
