Tour - Valient Thorr - 15 Years On Earth 2016

The Press Release:
VALIENT THORR are the baddest band on the planet (from another planet). They have been rocking their adopted home of Earth since arriving here from Venus over fifteen years ago. With six albums under their belt Napalm Records will release their seventh album later this year! This MC5/James Brown inspired quintuplet have stood the test of time morphing in and out of what Motorhead frontman Lemmy Kilmister calls simply- Rock N’Roll.

In support of the new album VALIENT THORR will be hitting the road in North American on the “15 Years on Earth Tour”. Joining them on the road will be Pears, Black Wizard and label-mates Hammer Fight. The tour kicks off May 25th in Asheville, NC and runs through July 13th in Baltimore, MD.

“Alahoyus true believers! We are super psyched to be coming back after SO long. In this specific time period of savage psychic political and media warfare, and with the loss of so many true artistic voices- we need all Thorriors to slap their big bare foot on the nearest log like that lil rabbit in Bambi, and let them all know WE ARE COMING.” – Valient Himself

PiercingMetal Thoughts: Having only seen Valient Thorr in concert once (and this was several years ago already), I can say with some level of certainty that I would like to catch them again because it was a lot of Rock and Roll fun. I don’t know much about the other touring bands and that will allow for some musical education if I can get there in time for all of them. This is a practice I generally suggest others employ so they can see what else is out there. What do you readers think of the tour? Will you be attending? Let me know in the comments section below.
