METAL CHURCH: Announce European Summer Tour.

Added 15 March 2019, 10:18 AM

West coast metal veterans METAL CHURCH released their 12th full length studio album »Damned If You Do« on December 7, 2018 via Nuclear Blast Records (Rat Pak Records/America & King Records/Japan). The release is the follow-up to their highly successful 2016 album »XI«, which saw the return of legendary frontman Mike Howe. »Damned If You Do« is a cross between the band's iconic »Blessing In Disguise« and »The Human Factor«. After recently announcing an extensive North American run with Doro's WARLOCK among others, the quintet is pleased to announce a few selected club shows alongside fellow countrymen ARMORED SAINT to round off their upcoming European summer festival run. The band's current itinerary can be found below.

Vocalist Mike Howe states, "We are thrilled to be heading over to Europe for these shows and to meet up with our fans!" Adds guitarist Kurdt Vanderhoof, "I'm excited to return to Europe this summer and play alongside so many cool bands!"

»Damned If You Do« also features new drummer Stet Howland (ex-W.A.S.P./Lita Ford). Stet first arrived after the departure of long-time drummer Jeff Plate, but soon after joining the band he was diagnosed with diffuse large B-cell lymphoma. Miraculously, his treatments for the aggressive non-Hodgkin lymphoma worked and he was able to begin recording the new album.

»Damned If You Do« is something truly unique and special. The songs are powerful, precise, and METAL CHURCH's musical vision is unified. From the haunting opener 'Damned If You Do' to the final hard-edged track 'The War Electric,' this new album is sure to resonate with fans from the band's early years while garnering new ones. Songs like 'By The Numbers,' 'Guillotine' and 'The Black Things' are sure to become instant favorites!
