GAMA BOMB KICK OFF NORTH AMERICAN TOUR THIS SATURDAY

October 20th, 2010
by EvilG

Irish thrashers GAMA BOMB are gearing up for their first ever North American tour, which kicks off this Saturday, October 23rd in Seattle, Washington.

GAMA BOMB will be tearing around the USA and Canada with the likes of OVERKILL, FORBIDDEN, EVILE, BONDED BY BLOOD and DRI, and will be out on the road until just before Christmas.

GAMA BOMB frontman PHILLY BYRNE reveals how the band has been preparing for such a huge tour so far away:

“Speaking to embassy people through bullet-proof glass; working out how long a pair of underpants can be made to last; factoring in strepped throat, voltage converters and flu pills: just some of the work that has gone into bringing GAMA BOMB to North America this winter.  Dollars feel more like money than Euro – they’re thicker and crunch up nicely.  We won’t be seeing too many of them over the next few months, but we’re jonesing to get to the US and begin the tour to end all tours.

“If you’re reading this and are in a good mood, please bring us some real moonshine, hooch or bath tub white lightning (test it first for potability – we can’t afford to go blind) or failing that your local beer.  We intend to drink America.”
