Direct support will come from Prog metallers Halcyon Way. The original album released on February 2nd, 1990 via Epic Records, and its remastered special edition release is out now via Century Media Records. Even though the initial plans to commemorate this big anniversary live in 2020 with current singer Joseph Michael (Witherfall), stepping in for the late Warrel Dane, had to be postponed due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the band will perform the entire album and likely hits and eep cuts as they have done recently, on their 2021 tour. Sanctuary’s iconic vocalist Warrel Dane passed away on December 13th, 2017.
The album was carefully remastered by Zeuss (Queensrÿche, Iced Earth, Overkill) to make it sound a bit fuller and heavier without losing the original feel and the extra tracks are real gems for die-hard fans.
