To celebrate the release of their new opus “Heart Like A Grave” they will be playing a few selected shows in Finland, before starting the European part of “TOUR LIKE A GRAVE”. All tour dates are listed below.Niilo Sevänen comments, “We are very excited to return to UK and Ireland in January! There is a special relationship between Insomnium and these misty islands. Our first label was Candlelight, and when we first started touring outside Finland in 2005 and 2006 it was in UK where we began. Now it’s also been a while since we last visited Ireland or Scotland, so we are really looking forward to play over there. Going to be cool!”

On October 4th, 2019, INSOMNIUM released “Heart Like A Grave”, which entered the official Finnish album charts on #1, the official German album charts on #10 and Swiss album charts on #15.
