Wildly celebrated throughout Europe and then catapulting into the American spotlight with the release of ‘The Varangian Way’, the band has become known for their catchy songs and fiery stage shows. Now, Turisas are gearing up to release their latest, ‘Stand Up and Fight’, via Century Media on March 8th and have teamed with Decibel Magazine to premiere “The Great Escape”.
