Deicide will help start the summer with a headlining appearance at the Gramercy Theatre. Joining them will be Origin, Jungle Rot and The Absence.
So today was a bit of a wash here at the Metal Command HQ and inclement weather found Nuclear Blast Recording artists Amorphis having their show postponed until an as yet undetermined date. This bummed out a lot of the Metal Republic who were heading there but I can understand the whole safety first stuff. The blizzard wasn’t as bad as anticipated but travel was still a pain in the a$$. Anyway, with lots more time on my hands it was great to receive the press details about the upcoming tour by Destruction and all of that scoop is below for your enjoyment. Dig in.
The Press Release:
Legendary German thrashers DESTRUCTION have announced the “North American Under Attack” tour. The trek will begin in Oakland, CA on May 22nd and hit 19 cities including Chicago, New York, and Atlanta before concluding in Los Angles at The Regent Theater on June 11th. Direct support will come from both Los Angeles thrash metallers WARBRINGER and Wisconsin death Metallers JUNGLE ROT.
Mastermind Schmier states:
“The Under Attack tour will finally come to North America. Sorry for the little delay, but it has been a busy and successful run so far in other countries and we are looking forward to bringing it to North America. With WARBRINGER and JUNGLE ROT, we are bringing two crushing bands that are friends and fit very well on this old-school billing.
America was never easy to tour for foreign thrash bands, and that’s why it’s always special for us. You just never know when it’s going to be the last time as it is not going to get easier in the future.
So come out to thrash and party with us and of course the set list will feature a lot of 80’s classics as we as we are working on THRASH ANTHEMS II at the moment. See you in the pit! ”
