TURISAS Confirm Spring 2011 Dates

New album Stand Up And Fight Finland's TURISAS have confirmed spring 2011 dates in Portugal and Spain.
Mathias Nygand (vocals): "We’ve always had a very strong support on the Iberian peninsula and we’re of course extremely happy about that. Over the years we’ve often been over there as part of a support act, but we felt we owed our fans in Spain and Portugal some proper headline shows for a change. We’ve been trying to make this happen for ages, but it’s taken time. So now we're definitely coming, make you turn up and show your support! I'm sure we’ll have some amazing shows happening! We think this trip will prove that bands could do so much more on the Iberian peninsula, if they had the courage to just go a bit further and explore it. We are super excited about it! Let’s paint Iberia black and red together!"
