Acrassicauda Announce First U.S. Tour

Iraqi metal band Acrassicauda have announced their first tour in support of their debut EP, Only the Dead See the End of the War. The band came to fame for being the only heavy metal band in Baghdad, as portrayed in the documentary Heavy Metal in Baghdad.

After having their practice space destroyed, the band fled first to Syria, then Turkey, before finally making their way to the United States, where they now reside.

Only the Dead See the End of the War, originally released on March 9, 2010, is available on iTunes.
