Californian circle-pit kings, DEVILDRIVER, and death metal legends, CANNIBAL CORPSE are teaming up for a clutch of UK shows next March.
The brutal duo will also be joined by some ‘yet-to-be-announced’ super heavy support acts. Check out frontman Dez Fafara and guitarist Jeff Kendrick hinting at the tour during a recent interview with Metal Hammer TV: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Tqw5zsugUkE
DEVILDRIVER’s rabid fanbase recently churned up the turf at this year’s Download Festival, when the Santa Barbara-based band delivered a furious set packed with fan favourites and showcasing tracks from their current and fifth studio album, ‘Beast’. Dez and his cohorts have already started writing for their next opus, and plans are afoot for a Fall 2013 release via new record label, Napalm Records.
Meanwhile, CANNIBAL CORPSE’s 12th studio album ‘Torture’ hit shelves in March 2012. Next year marks the band’s 25th anniversary since forming in Buffalo, NY in 1988.
Tour dates rack up as follows:
Thu 7th March – LONDON HMV Forum
Fri 8th March – NOTTINGHAM Rock City
Sat 9th March – MANCHESTER HMV Ritz
Sun 10th March – GLASGOW O2 ABC
Tickets went on sale today, priced £18.50 regionally, and £20 in London (subject to booking fee). DevilDriver will close all UK shows.
Band Of The Month
What made you name your band Chasing Cadence?
We really liked the idea of Chasing. But we wanted to be Chasing something. Cadence is Latin for rhythm and it’s also the term used for the end of a musical phrase, so it fits well in that sense. It’s obviously also a girls name. Being the romantics that we are, it vaguely symbolises the chasing of something that you want in life, whether that be a person or anything else. We also wanted our name to be slightly different!
Which bands do you draw inspiration from musically?
Individually our influences range from metalcore to pop and all in between, including Rockabilly! Bands that inspire us at the moment are Mallory Knox, Deaf Havana, Hildamay, Don Broco, Young Guns, Devil Sold His Soul and Lower Than Atlantis
What can people expect from your live show?
It’s all about the energy! Our live shows are where people can see our raw passion spill out in all its glory. We put absolutely everything into them, all that we’ve got. And as cliché as that sounds, it’s true. We love getting the crowd involved and we get amongst as much as we can. It’s about having a good time and that’s exactly what we aim for.
What song would you recommend from your Facebook?
Our single/video ‘Accidents Will Happen’ is on our Facebook page at the moment.
Here’s the latest from Chasing Cadence..
Our brand new single ‘Young’ is being released on Sunday 10 March, along with a video to accompany it. It was recorded by Dan Lancaster (Mallory Knox, Lower Than Atlantis, Don Broco) and the video was shot by Full Circle Media. We are in the process of writing our EP which is set for release in the Summer. This will include 1 or 2 tracks with some surprise guest vocals on there which we’re really excited about.
