Portuguese dark metal pioneers MOONSPELL start their North American tour alongside AMORPHIS, DARK TRANQUILITY and OMNIUM GATHERUM last Friday in New York City at the sold out Gramercy Theater.  The tour will run through October 14thin Clifton ParkNY.  A complete list of dates can be found below.

Additionally, MOONSPELL has released  a live video for the track “Extinct”, taken from their latest offering, Lisboa Under The Spell. You can watch the video below.

Fernando Ribeiro on the video: “Now that the DVD is out, I guess a lot of our fans already made up their minds about it and I guess rather were as surprised about its final epic form as we were surprised by the, no-bullshit, honest and very solid reactions to our new LIVE release, praise, great reviews, chart entries at all. As far as I am concerned LIVE releases don’t make the cut sometimes. That’s why the Lisboa Under the Spell you might or might not have already in your hands was so carefully thought out and packaged, reminding us of the very few LIVE releases that make us sit in the couch and watch or listen the hell out of. Records like Life After Death (Maiden), Earth Inferno (Fields of the Nephilim) and a few others. Those, with all due respect, were the ones who inspired us to do better. The addition of the album Extinct makes perfect sense to us, as this is the musical thread we are going to follow with the next opus and also because that was the last date of our very dear Road To Extinction tour that started off in 2015 and ended in our hometown, Lisbon on February 2017 e.v. We hope you enjoy this new clip from the title song “Extinct,” featuring the lovely and dangerous Portuguese actress Carolina Torres, brandishing the sword and watching her pack rocking out. Before the lights go out.”

Lisboa Under The Spell wasn’t just a usual concert. MOONSPELL played their first two full length studio albums Wolfheart and Irreligious plus their 2015 album Extinctall on one evening. As a plus, they were filmed during the whole day from the early morning until the middle of the night. All this was put together as a Rockumentary on this DVD set. It’s a must have for every MOONSPELLfan!  Purchase your copy here.
