New tour dates etc.

As some of you might’ve noticed, our site has received a little facelift. :) Moreover, we’ve added new tour dates as Perkeros will be heading to Sweden and Denmark. The translations will be launched at Seriefestivalen in Stockholm, and I’ll be attending the festival to sign books and doodle some drawings for you guys. This is quite an exciting foreign edition for us, as many of the bands that have influenced us along the way are from Sweden. More info on the festival schedules later on. Hope you enjoy the updated website, everyone!
