Finnish folk metal heroes Korpiklaani who are currently preparing for two Russian shows with Trollfest later this month, are pleased to announce that they will be returning to UK shores in March 2020 for a string of eight headline shows, as part of their ongoing Land Of A Thousand Drinks world tour! The final performance is set to take place at Hammerfest UK. Support on the tour will come from Nuclear Blast label mates Burning Witches

In celebration of this news, Korpiklaani have today released a killer video for their new track Jägermeister, shot at their recent New York show. The video was directed by Vicente Cordero, with production by Industrialism Films. Jägermeister will be available to purchase as a digital single on 13th December.

You can view the video for “Jägermeister” below.

Tickets for Korpiklaani’s UK tour are set to go on sale Friday 13th December. Stay tuned for news next week.

Front-man Jonne commented:
“As our recent North American tour began, we were discussing making a new video and Jyrki (The 69 Eyes) recommended Vicente and he was a perfect fit. At the time we did not even know what song to use and then we remembered we never released "Jägermeister" as this was recorded during the Manala sessions. We contacted Vicente and found out that he had free time the day we had our last show in New York. He flew out to NY, met us at the PlayStation Theater and then filmed around Times Square, backstage and during the show. Now it is time for your favourite medicine, perfect to warm up the cold winter days and get you in that party mood! Come and drink with us!”...
