Classical metalheads Apocalyptica are to play second fiddle (oh, ha ha) to Rammstein on the German rock giants' UK tour this February.
Apocalyptica are to release a single, 'Bittersweet', in the Spring. The song features both Ville Vallo of Finnish goth-rockers HIM and Lauri Ylonen of pop-rock sh*tbags The Rasmus. Don't say you haven't been warned...
Those dates, anyway...
