GLAMOUR OF THE KILL are back. Check out ‘Fire Fight’ here:
Experiencing a meteoric rise towards the end of the Noughties that saw them touring the world with the likes of Avenged Sevenfold, Papa Roach and Escape The Fate and being heralded as a festival headliner of the future, GLAMOUR OF THE KILL’s rock n roll excesses eventually caught up with them, causing their implosion.
Having been on hiatus for the last four years, GOTK decided to restart the engines, unable to ignore the itch of playing again that was screaming to be scratched. Without much in the way of expectations other than a hope some people would turn up to their first shows in nearly half a decade, the band booked a handful of gigs, eager to return to the stage.
What they did not expect was such a frenzied demand, with both the Manchester and London shows selling out and the York show well on it’s way to filling the 600 cap Fibbers venue.
Not wanting to take their foot off the gas, the band decided to keep things going with new single ‘Fire Fight’, and give their loyal fans something new to enjoy. Heavily inspired by NWOBHM dynasties such as Iron Maiden as well as modern metal titans Bullet For My Valentine and Trivium, GLAMOUR OF THE KILL are once again raising the bar for commercial heavy metal, one shredding guitar solo at a time.
The rebirth will not feature founding Guitarist Chris Gomerson, who has departed the band amicably. In his place will be Craig Robinson, formerly of The Family Ruin.
Says frontman Davey Richmond –
“We can’t wait to let everyone hear what we’ve been cooking up this last year. I think people will be blown away with the new heavier sound. We announced our November shows to see if people still cared and they are all pretty much sold out, so it’s a great feeling and we can’t wait to let off some steam and play some metal old and new. 2019 will be a great year for GOTK.”
Catch the band at the following shows:
01.11 – Manchester @ Gullivers (SOLD OUT)
02.11 – York @ Fibbers
03.11 – London @ The Underworld (SOLD OUT)
