Last week, it was announced that June 2, 2017 will mark the release of Global Music Award-winning nomadic folk metal group TENGGER CAVALRY‘s upcoming full-length album, Die On My Ride. The band is thrilled to announce that just a day after album drops, they will kick off a 25+ date North American headline tour featuring support from Venezuelan world music/progressive fusion guitarist Felix Martin and pagan folk metal group Helsott.
The tour will begin in Montreal, QC on June 3 and visit several other major Canadian and U.S. cities before coming to an end on July 8 in Manchester, NH (Helsott will appear June 18-June 27). See below for a full listing of dates.
TENGGER CAVALRY frontman Nature G states: “After so many months off the road, hours and hours of recording in the studio and many intense rehearsals, we are so excited to finally hit the road and raid with Felix Martin and Helsott! Helsott is amazing – they play European-influenced pagan folk metal, and Felix Martin is an absolutely skillful progressive-influenced metal/rock act. We’re stoked to play many songs from our brand new album and also to have these awesome fellow world/folk music artists out with us!”

Each night on tour, fans can look forward to hearing TENGGER CAVALRY favorites and new tracks from the band’s aforementioned new album, Die On My Ride. The new album expands on the band’s celebrated, exotic metal-meets-Mongolian/Central Asian musical influence and lyrical explorations of tradition, history and warfare by delving into more topical themes of personally-experienced racial discrimination, identity conflicts and equal rights issues.
Die On My Ride was self-produced at Nature G’s production studio Raiding Media, and is available to pre-order now in both physical CD and vinyl format via M-Theory Audio or digitally via the band’s Bandcamp page.
Die On My Ride is TENGGER CAVALRY‘s first album available in vinyl format, as well as their first album to be released with M-Theory Audio – the new label recently launched by Marco Barbieri, former president of Century Media Records and Nuclear Blast America. The album is distributed by AISA/RED in North America.
In addition to these North American dates, TENGGER CAVALRY plans to announce several performances at European festivals this summer. Stay tuned!
About TENGGER CAVALRY:
As one of the most unique and innovative acts in modern music, TENGGER CAVALRY (“the army of the sky god” in Mongolian) blends the nomadic musical traditions, instrumentation and warrior spirit of Central Asia with the aggression and power of heavy metal. The group was founded by Nature “G” Ganganbaigal, who sings using the ancient Mongolian tradition of Khoomei (more commonly known as throat-singing) and plays multiple native instruments, including the Morin Khuur (an ancient fiddle), the Tovshuur (a Mongolian guitar) and the Mongolian flute.
Following Nature G’s relocation to America four years ago, TENGGER CAVALRY has successfully completed two headlining tours and even sold out a performance at New York City’s prestigious Carnegie Hall.
In the studio, meanwhile, the group’s output has been prodigious – since forming in 2010, they’ve released four full-length albums, two EPs and numerous singles, including unique cover interpretations of metal classics. In January, Megadeth’s Dave Mustaine retweeted the group’s cover of “Symphony of Destruction,” while the previous month, the official Motörhead Facebook page reposted their rendition of “Fight.”
TENGGER CAVALRY has been praised by top media outlets such as Metal Hammer, Terrorizer, Billboard, CNN, The Huffington Postand countless others.
