Esprit D’Air Announce 2024 Tour

Esprit D’Air has released a cover of Iron Maiden’s classic track ‘The Trooper’, featuring Tim ‘Ripper’ Owens (KK’s Priest, ex-Judas Priest) on guest vocals, and Ben Christo (The Sisters Of Mercy) on guitar to commemorate the 40th anniversary of its release.

Esprit D’Air has announce a new 17-date Leviathan Tour in the UK and Europe for 2024 after selling out their entire self-promoted UK tour earlier this year.

Lead vocalist and producer Kai said: “After our sold out seven date tour in the UK earlier this year, we felt like we had more to give and could do more. As soon as the last tour finished, I went ahead and booked an even bigger one. This time, I chose cities that bands sometimes forget, and we’re going to every country in the UK including Northern Ireland. 12 out of 17 are cities that we have never been in before. I will also be planning more European dates, wherever possible—so please wait for me!” 

Formed in 2010, with initial success found with their single ‘Shizuku’ released on the video game Rock Band 3. Esprit D’Air reformed in 2016, under Japanese electronic rock/metal vocalist, multi-instrumentalist, and producer, Kai’s direction. They won 2018’s Best Metal Album at The Independent Music Awards in New York, for the release of their debut album, Constellations, judged by an esteemed panel featuring Slayer, Evanescence’s Amy Lee, Sepultura and more.

For the 2024 tour, Esprit D’Air will be performing tracks from their album Oceans, that re-entered several Official UK Charts including #8 in Rock & Metal Albums, #5 in Album Downloads, and #19 in Scottish Albums earlier this year, plus more. The live line-up for the tour consists of Kai (Esprit D’Air), Jan-Vincent Velazco (Pendragon, Gus G) on drums, Takeshi on bass, and Yusuke on guitar.

Tour date information is listed below.
