Alter Bridge finally announce their long-anticipated return to Europe. Their biggest headline shows yet, the 24-date tour hits 15 countries, kicking off on November 4, 2016.
Produced by Michael ‘Elvis’ Baskette, Alter Bridge’s fifth studio album is planned for release in October 2016, via Napalm Records, so the fans can look forward to hearing new songs on the tour, alongside their favourites.
Special guests for the trek include Volbeat, who released their sixth album, Seal The Deal & Let’s Boogie, earlier this month (reviewed here). French Metal monsters, Gojira, will be giving fans a taste of their crushing new album, Magma, and up-and-comers, Like A Storm, jet in from New Zealand to get the party started.
Metal Hammer has praised the band’s introduction of the didgeridoo into heavy music declaring, “Like A Storm are rewriting Metal’s rulebook like never before.”
“We are so excited to be coming back to the U.K. and Europe with our brothers in Alter Bridge! They have always been one of our favourite bands to tour with!” exclaims singer/guitarist Chris Brooks.
“This is beyond incredible,” states guitarist/vocalist Matt Brooks. “Touring the UK and Europe with Alter Bridge is a dream come true for us as a band. Can’t wait to hit the UK where we get to play with Volbeat and Gojira too!”
