Legendary Bay Area thrash metallers DEATH ANGEL have added headlining dates around their upcoming tour with TESTAMENT and ANTHRAX this Fall! The group will also perform their 1987 classic, The Ultra-Violence, in its entirety at these shows.
“We had such a blast on the first two legs that we had to come back for thirds,” commented guitarist Rob Cavestany. “TESTAMENT, ANTHRAX, DEATH ANGEL North American Tour Part III coming at ya live this September/October! This run will see us performing more dates in Canada since our ‘Frolic Through the Park Tour’ in 1988!
To top it off, after that tour ends, we continue on the road in the states with headline shows in support of the Silver Anniversary of our debut album The Ultra-Violence. We will be performing the entire album from beginning to end. We have never done this in the USA so prepare for a wicked set of pure old school THRASH!
Looking forward to seeing all our crazy fans, friends and family out on the road again soon! Until then we shall use all the energy we’ve stored up from nonstop touring to continue writing our next album!”
