DEATHRIDERS, the power/thrash metal band led by former ANTHRAX singer Neil Turbin, will embark on a U.S. tour, dubbed “The Metal Beast Is Back”, later this month. The trek will see the band headlining the iconic Whisky a Go Go on the Sunset Strip in Hollywood, California on July 21 as well as returning to the San Francisco Bay Area to headline the Oakland Metro Opera House on August 10, and will include dates in Maryland and Arizona, with more to be announced soon.
According to a press release, “at a recent DEATHRIDERS rehearsal at Hollywood’s Swing House Studios, the band sounded fast and heavy with strong old-school ‘Fistful Of Metal’ vocals which caught the attention of Steven Tyler (AEROSMITH, ‘American Idol’). In an even further testament to the ‘molten-metal’ performance given by the band even at a simple rehearsal, Tyler who had been listening outside the studio, came into the rehearsal room unannounced and stayed to watch the band perform their track ‘Give ‘Em Hell’ and was [seen] headbanging along the whole time.”
DEATHRIDERS is currently recording its full-length debut, “The Metal Beast Is Alive”, at Blue Pacific Studios in Los Angeles.
