King Diamond announce new album 'The Institute' and North American tour

After much anticipation, King Diamond have announced their first studio album in 12 years today. The release will be titled The Institute, and it’ll be released sometime early next year. The band will release the first single from the album this fall.

King Diamond will also embark on a fall North American tour in support of the forthcoming album. The trek kicks off on November 2 inside Dallas’ Bomb Factory, and it’ll conclude inside Phoenix’s Comerica on December 4. Joining the band as support are Uncle Acid & The Deadbeats, who are promoting their 2018 studio album Wasteland, and Idle Hands, who are plugging their new album Mana.
