Said DORO of her return to the US, “I’m so excited to start the second leg of the US tour! I can’t wait to see all our diehard fans and our new fans on this run. We will rock like there’s no tomorrow and it will be only the best of the best songs in our setlist and a totally awesome show. I feel we’re stronger than ever and since the fans are the most important thing in our lives, we can’t wait to kill on this tour and blow everybody’s minds.

“DORO PESCH knows what her fans expect from her and Raise Your Fist ushers everything that’s part and parcel to her Teutonic-kissed heavy rock: true as steel metal anthems, supple power ballads and a couple of double-kicked skullcrushers.” – Blabbermouth
“Raise Your Fist is a confident, well crafted, classic metal album, which offers a slab of horn-throwing anthems, with just the right amount of sentiment. DORO heads into a new decade with another load of rock and roll ammunition in her arsenal.” – MetalHolic
“The rhythmic diversity and multiple dynamics on this album, along with great songwriting, makes Raise Your Fist, the 30th Anniversary reissue Edition, a masterpiece.” – Cryptic Rock
“From heavy rocker thrash fests to metal to power ballads DORO’s Rise Your Fist has it all and is a must have in any true rocker’s music collection.” – Rock Revolt
