Checking in from his home studio as the band prepares for their upcoming North American tour, guitarist Wacław “Vogg” Kiełtyka shares the following about the chart debut:
“We debuted on the Billboard charts again? We couldn’t be more happy that Blood Mantra has such big support! The album also entered the Polish charts at the amazing #11 position, which is our highest chart entry ever. Thanks a lot to our fans for their big support and to our label Nuclear Blast and the Mystic Production Team for their passion and hard work to make that happen. In few days we start our tour with GWAR and American Sharks. Hope to see you there. For those who can make it, come to our three headlining shows with Misery Index!”
