Norwegian black metal legends Dimmu Borgir are set to celebrate their 25th anniversary with a long-awaited return to Australia, with the group announcing an East Coast run of dates earlier today.

Forming back in 1993, Dimmu Borgir have made a name for themselves as one of the leaders in the symphonic black metal genre thanks to their exhilarating sound and intense live shows. Now, after a few years of laying low, the group are set to hit up Australia this October.

Having released nine albums between 1995 and 2010, Dimmu Borgir released their latest album, Eonian, earlier this month, with the group clearly eager to head back out on the road after having only played a handful of shows since 2012.

Returning to Australia for their first-ever headline tour, and first tour since their debut Aussie performances with the Soundwave Festival all the way back in 2011, the group are set to perform some huge shows in Melbourne, Brisbane, and Sydney.

“Australia! It’s been a long time coming and believe us when we proclaim pure excitement in returning to perform for you, our supportive fans,” said the band’s guitarist, Silenoz. “We have all been waiting impatiently!”

Tickets to the group’s debut Aussie shows are set to go on sale on Tuesday, June 5th, so make sure you don’t miss out on some of the heaviest shows you’ll see all year!
