Fearless Vampire Killers will support In This Moment on their first ever European headline tour.

The news comes hot on the heels of FVK postponing their own headline tour dates earlier this week.

“We’re super excited to be on this tour!” says frontman Kier Kemp. “Not only do I admire the theatricality that In This Moment bring to their show they have also been kind enough to give us our first opportunity to play in mainland Europe! The album is going to get a proper physical release out there too in April so I can’t wait to get out and meet everyone, spread the good word.”

He goes on to apologise about the postponement of the band’s own original tour dates as a result:

“We’re really super sorry for any inconvenience caused however we are going to have to postpone our UK headline dates arranged for this February. The dates WILL be rescheduled for early 2015 and you have our word that we will get details of those rescheduled dates to you ASAP. All tickets that have already been purchased will still be valid, so please hold on to them and your confirmations! We will be hitting all of the same cities/regions, so no worries there either. If for whatever reason you can’t make the rescheduled date, refunds are available from the point of purchase.”
