Die Apokalyptischen Reiter announce Volle.Kraft.Voraus. European tour

Germany’s most spectacular band are Weimar’s Die Apokalyptischen Reiter. The band, whose name translates as “Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse”, brandish a unique style of melodic heaviness, accompanied by one of a kind, intense lyrics. Recently, the band unleashed their new masterpiece “Wilde Kinder” (=“Wild Children”), which is the official successor to their highly successful album “Der Rote Reiter” (2017) and already stormed the German charts at #9!

The band have announced their Volle.Kraft.Voraus. tour that will set stages on fire across Gemany, Austia and Switzerland in October of this year. Unbridled live power, pure excitement, and maximum energy – Die Apokalyptischen Reiter turn every show into a spectacle, making sure that their fans understand what the Reitermania is really about. For the first time, the band will embark on a club tour in celebration of their new top 10 album “Wilde Kinder”, from which they have today released yet another music video for the song “Der Eisenhans” (=Iron John”).

Everything on “Wilde Kinder” sounds exactly like the Riders as we know and love them – hard riffing, with dynamic drumming and catchy choruses.

There’s no question about it – Die Apokalyptischen Reiter will make every single show unforgettable. There could not be a more fitting tour motto than Volle.Kraft.Voraus., as they set to take everyone along on a ride through 25 years of the band’s history, woven between new hymns, so that both old school and new school fans alike can enjoy an evening full of emotion. The band will be supported by German pagan metallers Wolfchant.
