U.S. Progressive Metal pioneers Fates Warning have announced a next run of touring across Europe for January 2018 in support of their much acclaimed latest album “Theories of Flight”.

All of the shows will be recorded for an upcoming live release, which makes the dates very special.

Jim Matheos comments:
“It's been 20 years since we released our only live album, "Still Life". It's time for an update! In January we'll be recording a series of shows in some of our favorite European cities. The best of these will be included in a live album to be released in 2018. While we haven't decided on the final set list yet we're planning on about a 2 hour set with as little overlap as possible with the "Still Life album". Hope to see you all there!”...

Ray Alder says:
“We're excited to be returning to Europe in 2018 for these special shows! Thanks to you, our incredible fans, for making "Theories..." such a success. We could not have done it without you! See you in 2018!”...
