Kreator have confirmed a European tour at the end of the year with support from Arch Enemy, Sodom and Vader.
Kreator, Arch Enemy for UK tour
Thrash veterans to deliver last club shows before dropping off the road to work on next album
It includes a run of UK shows in December, although they'll only feature the headline band and Arch Enemy.
Kreator frontman Mille Petrozza says: "In 2013 we were mainly playing for our fans overseas – we want to change that now.
"In time for the reissues of Endless Pain, Pleasure To Kil_l and _Extreme Aggression in all kinds of formats, we'll end the Phantom Antichrist tour cycle in Europe.
"This will be your last chance to see Kreator live in clubs for quite a while, because we'll be busy working on a new album in 2015."
Petrozza vows fans will be impressed by a "new multimedia stage show" and the setlist will include a "bunch of surprises."
Arch Enemy will be showcasing latest album War Eternal, recorded with new vocalist Alisse White-Gluz, who was hired after Angela Gossow decided to concentrate on her management career.
