Currently on tour in the US with Slayer, Napalm Death will return to Europe in November.
UK Grindcore pioneers Napalm Death have now started their massive North American tour alongside Slayer, Lamb of God, Anthrax and Testament. Next to the previously announced main dates, Napalm Death have recently also added a string of additional shows supporting Lamb of God as well as headline dates in Europe.
Bassist Shane Embury had checked in with the following comment about the Slayer tour: “NAPALM DEATH are very excited to be part of the second leg of Slayer’s farewell tour! Having been a fan since back in the day, I never would have thought when I bought the import copy of “Show No Mercy” that playing grindcore would catapult us into this universe. We’ll see you in July!”
