Irish thrashers GAMA BOMB have announced a free show in London, UK this July, just days before the band kicks off a UK tour supporting Brazilian thrash legends SEPULTURA.

GAMA BOMB, who have recently been confirmed for their first ever US tour with OVERKILL, FORBIDDEN, EVILE and BONDED BY BLOOD later this year, will be playing the free show on July 12th at The Unicorn in London with support from local thrashers DAMNAS.  GAMA BOMB kick off their UK tour with SEPULTURA on July 14th in Bristol.

Frontman PHILLY BYRNE describes the experience of witnessing a GAMA BOMB show:

“In many ways a GAMA BOMB gig is like a Ryanair flight.  Firstly, our ‘passengers’ are subjected to a sonic barrage of babbled spoken word and mechanical screaming noises by a crew of foreign people who look bad in tight-fitting clothes – namely, us.  Secondly, we’re constantly trying to force people to drink sub-standard liquor and buy shoddy mementos.  Finally, our gigs often end with a bumpy landing and a round of applause that half the crowd don’t think is deserved.  We’re looking forward to hanging out with old friends and meeting some new ones on this UK tour with Sepultura.  Oh, and we’re going to start charging fans to use the toilet.  Thanks for flying Gama Bomb, Europe’s number one budget thrash band.”
