Amon Amarth will drop anchor in two New York concert harbors. The bands will make waves at the Best Buy Theatre in New York on Apr. 22, and at the Water Street Music Hall in Rochester on Apr. 25. Amon Amarth will bring Entombed A.D. and Exmortus along for the adventure.

Amon Amarth is also in search for a drummer. Amon enlisted drummer Tobias Gustafsson to play on the band’s upcoming album, Jomsviking. Gustafsson replaced drummer Fredrik Anderson after 17 years with the band.

Anne Catherine Swallow of Metal Wani interviewed guitarist Johan Soderberg of Amon Amarth. Soderberg told her that Gustafsson was hired to play drums on the new album only. He went on to say that the band has someone in mind to play the first tour session as they look for a permanent solution behind the kit.
