HAVOK: Denver Thrashers To Kick Off Tour With Forbidden

April 30th, 2011
by EvilG

Young Denver thrash battalion, HAVOK, who recently wrapped up a tour supporting Florida death metal legends Malevolent Creation, are gearing up for two very special treks. The first is a short run of headlining dates that will commence in Salt Lake City, Utah on May 3 and run through to Amarillo, Texas on May 12. From there, the band will head home for a short break before joining Bay Area thrash legends, Forbidden, for a near month-long journey that will kick off in West Hollywood, California and level 22 North American cities before drawing to a close in Escondido, California. Also joining the tour will be Revocation and White Wizzard.

 

Commented vocalist/guitarist David Sanchez: “Starting May 3, we’ll be heading out for a west coast run. Touring the west coast was how we got our start, so it always feels like home. It will be great to return for some head-smashing headline shows. Then in June, we’ll be doing a US/Canada run, coast to coast, with Forbidden, Revocation and White Wizzard! I am so psyched to be touring with all of these great bands! Forbidden is one of my favorite thrash metal bands and I really hope to hear some songs from their first two albums. Revocation is one of my favorite bands to have come out in the last 10 years and they’re all friends of ours, so I’m super pumped to get to hang out with them every night! I anticipate White Wizzard to be epic-as-fuck every night as well. I’m very excited to be a part of this tour because I feel that it will be one of the best metal packages of the 2011. Metal fans definitely won’t want to miss this tour. Prepare for some massive amounts of headbanging. Looking forward to seeing you all on the road!”

HAVOK will be touring in support of their critically acclaimed Time Is Up full-length released via Candlelight Records late last month.The follow-up to the band’s pummeling Burn debut, Time Is Up features ten tracks of meticulously crafted thrash metal anthems that have been garnering praise from critics nationwide. Terrorizer commended the band saying: “Everything great about thrash — infectious, galloping riffs, hummable choruses, a vast array of gang vocals in ‘DOA’ — is employed, with their ace in the hole being Reece Scruggs, whose sumptuously-phrased solos, balancing shred, fiery modal moves and soulful, blues bends will suck in everyone from guitar nerds to song-structure curmudgeons.” About.com gave the record 4/5 rating saying: “HAVOK have the chops and the ability to prove that they have the staying power to last in this genre,” while Popdose added: “This is easily the best thrash record of any type released since Toxic Holocaust dropped An Overdose of Death on us in 2008.”
