Last year was the 20th anniversary of Renegade, but due to the pandemic it had to be postponed. Well, the time is finally here! Renegade 2.0 is remixed by the magic ears and fingers of Fredrik Nordström and the all-new, heavier feel to the songs deserved a brand new cover. Enter Andreas Marschall, who let Hector ride on a bit farther from the burning castle he had him ravage two decades ago. The full album comes out on November 12 in a variety of different formats: 2 CD+DVD box, 3 LP box with vinyls in gold or marbled grey, plus a single LP available in four different colors. The remixed version of "Templars Of Steel" is out now wherever you like to consume your digital music. The Heavy Metal Revolution cannot be stopped! Read more about Renegade 2.0 in the press-release!

March 11 - St. Petersburg, Morze
March 12 - Moscow, 1930

It feels so good to be able to announce shows again, hope you feel the same and that we will see as many of you as possible in March next year!

HammerFall will release a new album in 2022, and that will be followed up by a huge European tour together with Helloween! How fucking cool is that? The United Forces Tour 2022 begins at the end of March, and we literally could not be more excited about it!

The official press release from Napalm Records:

The Swedish saviors of Heavy Metal, HAMMERFALL, will join German Heavy Metal legends Helloween on their postponed European tour in 2022. Swedish and German Steel unites to the United Forces Tour 2022!

We all have to stick together to stand and endure this agonizing live music gap and because extraordinary circumstances require extraordinary measures, Helloween invited their friends from HAMMERFALL to join them on their European tour in order to create a tremendous metal-package together. Both bands will have brand-new albums in their luggage and the European fans will be able to listen to the new songs live for the very first time on the United Forces Tour 2022. The long-awaited end of the dry spell is in sight - coming with a double dose in March, April and May 2022 as we have to catch up two years of metalparty to get cured from a lot of withdrawal symptoms!

HAMMERFALL singer Joacim Cans:
"Helloween is probably the band that influenced me the most growing up and I am extremely psyched about touring together with the guys. For the true metal fan, United Forces 2022 will be the ultimate metal experience. An experience that no one should miss for anything in the world. If there is one tour to experience in 2022, this is the one! Next year the Hammer will fall harder than ever before and every day will be Helloween!"

Helloween's Andi Deris:
"We are `hammered´ to have our friends from HAMMERFALL with us on tour! Back in 2002 the band produced their album "Crimson Thunder" in my studio in Tenerife and we had a lot of fun back then. This mega- package is delivering the appropriate metal-spectacle to enter the stage with full power!"

HAMMERFALL's Oscar Dronjak can hardly wait:
"We are so ridiculously excited about this! Not only do we get to go out on tour again after two looooooooong years of stage draught, but we get to do it with a band that we love and was a great inspiration to us in forming HAMMERFALL in the first place. The United Forces Tour will be something truly special, you can count on that!"

For the dry run up front, Helloween is releasing their fantastic new album and with the unification of their three vocalists Kiske, Deris & Hansen the album reminiscences to all eras of the band's history. This already is a sensation in itself, but also HAMMERFALL is ready to release a brand-new record before the tour starts. A great forerunner to get warmed up for the double load of live power with the ultimate United Forces Tour 2022. And whoever misses the just announced dates was probably never infected by the metal virus...

Some of you have already started to get your refunds, so now it's official: the North American tour that was to take place in September/October is cancelled. That sucks, but with the current global pandemic wreaking havoc on the world we (meaning the local promoters, booking agent and the band) had no choice.
We are hopeful to be able to rebook the tour for a future time, but since everything is so unstable at the moment the decision was made to scrap altogether it and return to it when things have calmed down. We are as sorry for this as you are, but hope you have understanding for our predicament brought on by the Corona virus. Stay safe, stay healthy, stay metal, and take care of each other!

During this down time due to the Corona virus, we have launched HammerFall TV over on our YouTube channel. In the first shows, streamed live every Friday at 19:00 CEST, Oscar is going through some songs from a specific album every week, playing the riffs, talking about the song writing and answering questions about the recording.

Later on we will add more content to HammerFall TV with the other members as well, so head on over to our YouTube channel and subscribe so you won't miss a thing!

Due to the Corona virus wreaking havoc with everything at the moment, the Scandinavian shows we had scheduled for the end of March (three in Denmark, two in Sweden) have all been postponed. When they will happen we don't know, but it will be announced as soon as things return to normal and we can continue regular operations. Hold on to your tickets, as they will be valid for the future date. We're very sorry for all this, but it's in the interest of public safety and according to regulations imposed by governments in order to get ahead of this terrible pandemic. Stay safe out there, everyone, and keep the flame burning.
Happy birthday to our singer, Joacim, who turns 50 years old today! Please let him know how much you appreciate him, he deserves it!

It's time to unleash the HammerFall Premium Vodka!

"This is an extraordinary vodka", says Joacim. "It´s got a very clear and smooth taste, but also with temperament that comes from pepper. I think a lot of people will be surprised how good it tastes!" Pontus, who is the vodka connoisseur in the band, fills in: "HammerFalls's Premium Vodka is the kind of drink that doesn't need to be served cold as ice or together with a soda. Serve it at room temperature and it will still taste amazing!"
