LEPROUS checked in to comment about the tour as follows:
"Hey everybody! Thanks for the great feedback you have given us for “Bilateral” so far – we truly couldn’t ask for a more positive vibe at this stage! And now it’s time for some touring… One year has passed since our previous run with Therion, and we’re all very excited to be heading out on our second tour of Europe at last in order to showcase “Bilateral” on stage as well. This is truly what we want to do, and we’re very happy to be able to go together with Amorphis this time around. It's nice to see that we’ll be visiting many new exciting places, but we're also pleased to see that we’ll be returning to many of the great places we’ve been before. We hope to meet as many of you as possible along the way, and hopefully we’ll give you a show you won’t forget!?"
