Arch Enemy Khaos Over Europe tour – Update

Posted: August 20, 2011 in metal

Swedish Metal legend ARCH ENEMY will soon tour through Europe to present their new album “Khaos Legions” live on stage! Main support is coming from label mates Warbringer, Chthonic and Engel (Swedish dates only). And they would like to have YOU as a local support to bring the Khaos to the European clubs! Please note that this contest only applies for the tour dates in Germany, Switzerland & Sweden!
Angela Gossow comments: “We are going out with a really cool package in Europe this December and would like to give an unsigned band the chance to get on the bill for one of the German or Swiss shows. The underground is alive and kicking, so show us what you got and send in your tunes! We are excited to get to know some new, hidden gems and talents!”


QUALIFYING – submission period from August 16th – August 23th
Head over to to submit your band. You can only apply for one city only.

ROUND TWO – public voting period from September 5th – September 16th
We’ll select for each tour date 4 local support bands, which will get the chance to open for ARCH ENEMY if they win the public voting. The winning bands will be announced on September 12th and will receive detailed info from Century Media and the band’s crew about the exact procedures on the show date. In case the winning band can’t play the show (for whatever reason) the second band will be informed…. and so on.

Thanks to our dear partners in crime, Dean Guitars & Rotor Sound, we will give away a Michael Amott signature Dean Guitar + a set of guitar strings to the band which has gathered the most votes in the public voting.

Please note the following main rules for any of the winning bands:
– all band members need to be over 18 years old
– you will be the opening band and your stage time is minimum 20 minutes
– you have to bring your own instruments and backline
– you will not receive any fee and neither Arch Enemy or Century Media will pay for your travel expenses
