Up-and-coming Swedish heavy metallers, LANCER, can proudly announce that they have signed a contract with German metal giants in Nuclear Blast. The first results of this fruitful union can be reaped very soon: After work on their third record, »Mastery«, has been finished now, the ten-track opus is set for an January 13th, 2017 release. Once again, the cover artwork was created by Dimitar Nikolov (ROSS THE BOSS, MAJESTY). The final layout was done by Marcelo Vasco (SLAYER, MACHINE HEAD,...). Mark the release date in your calendars to not miss this full load of traditional stainless steel - more info to follow soon!
As if this wasn't enough, LANCER will be opening for iconic heavy metallers HAMMERFALL on their upcoming European tour, »Built To Tour«, in January 2017. Intergalactic space metallers GLORYHAMMER will be completing this powerful touring package. This tour is not to be missed! All dates and the tour poster can be seen below!
Singer Isak Stenvall stated:
"I'm super excited, all the songs are killers, the cover artwork is fantastic and the sound and production is flawless. The fact that we will release the album on Nuclear Blast, and that I just got the news that we're playing in Tokyo in November, plus a European tour with HAMMERFALL and GLORYHAMMER in the beginning of next year just makes me even more excited over this release!"

”We got exactly the support bands we wanted”, says guitarist Oscar Dronjak from HammerFall. ”There is no doubt in my mind that Lancer will be thoroughly enjoyed by all our fans, and Gloryhammer:s mighty and epic music will be the perfect lead-in to the HammerFall show that will follow. The World Wide (r)Evolution was a resounding success on every level with half of the shows sold out, and we can’t wait to get back on stage again to have a gigantic heavy metal party every night with all our Templar friends!”
