Following their performance at the opening day of this year’s Neurotic Death Fest (April 29, 2011), INCANTATION will head to Poland this spring for their first headlining tour of the country. The tour runs from May 01 – May 08, 2011 and will also feature Polish Black Metallers Christ Agony. Incantation founder / frontman John McEntee issued the following statement: "With great honor we are proud to announce that we are doing our first headlining tour of Poland. Our first time playing Poland was back in 2007 as part of the Blitzkrieg 4 Tour 2007 with the killer line-up of Vader, Krisiun, Rotting Christ and my other band FUNERUS. This will be the first time we can play our full sent for all of our long time diehard Polish supporters, something we have been looking forward to for many years. Poland has always been good to us. From the band’s inception back in 1989 we have always had massive support for the Polish underground, but have had lots of problems making it over there to preform for one reason or another. Finally over 20 years after the formation of the band we will do our first headlining tour. It will be great to see our old school friend along with many new fans alike. The tour will be with the legendary Polish band Christ Agony. This is one of Poland’s greatest and most well-respected bands. Anyone that knows anything about the Polish underground Black Death Metal scene will agree. It will be great to play along side them every night! We look forward to seeing all you sick Polish Incantation supporters. We have a great set list that we are working on for the tour and we can’t wait to spill our guts out for you guys every night. Also, some of the Polish shows will be recorded (video and audio) and if the recordings quality comes out good we hope to use them for a live record and DVD sometime late this year. With all this great Polish news I also want to say that we are also playing the Neurotic Death Fest this year and it is a absolute honor to be apart of this amazing fest. We want to thanks the promoter for including us on this awesome fest. Along side some of my personal favorite bands! We look forward to seeing all our Dutch supporters there, it will be a kick ass time."
