Looks like Fridays are also a good day to do some tour announcements and this is especially the case when it comes to the hard-working Thrash Metal legends Death Angel. The band just announced their first in a long, long time headlining run of North America and this is exciting news for sure. I don’t recall a headlining appearance as a proper tour since one that hit the now shuttered B.B. King Blues Club that came through in 2008. You younger Metalheads might enjoy that overview that can be perused HERE. Now scroll on down past the poster for the full on press release and a whole lot of other coolness.

“DEATH ANGEL is proud to FINALLY announce our first headlining tour in many years of North America!! We’re doing this tour in support of our new album Humanicide! Supporting the ideals of the true thrash scene that we came from that supported the beliefs that kept the scene alive!

Rebellion, truth, energy, camaraderie, and most importantly the music!

“We are stoked that tickets for the Wacken Open Air 2020 have again sold out in a sensationally short period of time”, comments festival founder Thomas Jensen. “The great success of this year’s anniversary edition and our announcement of the first bands for next year have obviously convinced our fans that they can rely on us for which we are extremely thankful.

One of the highlights of next year’s Wacken Open Air will definitely be… the mighty JUDAS PRIEST! True legends celebrating “50 Heavy Metal Years” at the Holy Ground – a match made in headbanging heaven! JUDAS PRIEST have shaped heavy metal as we know it and we are incredibly honoured to welcome them to the festival for the fourth time.

Vikings and Metal go well together as we all know. There is no band out there that brings the fire, the screaming, and the general kickass awesomeness of both worlds better together than AMON AMARTH. These Swedes keep getting stronger and have been part of the Wacken journey since 1999! Next year, they will bring out the „Beserker“ in all of us for an impressive ninth time at the Wacken Open Air.
