DEATH ANGEL Announces Tour

San Francisco Bay Area metal veterans, DEATH ANGEL, are pleased to announce their first full US tour since their initial split 18 years ago! The band will embark on a co-headlining tour this May/June with GOD FORBID that will include SOILENT GREEN and LIGHT THIS CITY. Dubbed the “In Thrash We Trust” tour, this will mark the bands first tour in support of their critically acclaimed “Killing Season” record. A visibly excited founding guitarist, Rob Cavestany, eagerly offered a few words about the event:

“DEATH ANGEL is teaming up with GOD FORBID to hit the road and we couldn't be more stoked! ‘In Thrash We Trust’ will be the first full blown tour of the states that DEATH ANGEL has done since the ‘ACT III tour’ in 1990 and we are gonna bring it! Also on the bill are SOILENT GREEN and LIGHT THIS CITY so you better prepare to get thrashed all night long! Can't wait to see you all very soon! ‘Killing Season’ has begun!!!”
