Bay Area thrash legends DEATH ANGEL have announced the following 2nd leg of North American tour dates in support of their latest release, Relentless Retribution. These come in addition to their upcoming headlining run next January/February with LAZARUS A.D., EARLY MAN, BONDED BY BLOOD, and HEXEN. Visit the bands newly redesigned website at www.DeathAngel.us for more info and a complete list of tour dates.
Vocalist Mark Osegueda commented:
“We are pleased to announce some additional dates to the North American Relentless Retribution tour! We added some key west coast cities that we hit on the SOILWORK tour and as promised, we are coming back to destroy them with our headlining set. Also included are certain territories of Canada that we haven’t played on since the Act III tour in 1990. I said before that this is going to be the most extensive tour of this band’s career and here is more proof! So, come out and witness the energy that is DEATH ANGEL live! Look forward to seeing some long lost friends and some brand new ones as well! See you on the road!”
