ONSLAUGHT guitarist Nige Rockett comments: “We are well and truly stoked to announce our upcoming tour of the U.K. and Ireland this autumn.
“By the time we hit the road in November, it will be well over two and a half years since we did the last run. We feel the time is now right to bring things home once again.
“I’m sure the fans are gonna be real hungry for these shows. The demand for ‘The Force’ set has been incredible and with this awesome ‘best of British’ line up that’s been put together, it all points to some amazing old-school nights in loud, hot, sweaty clubs up and down the country. Everything is gonna be stripped back and brutal, just as thrash metal should be!”
