Goatwhore confirmed to support Lock Up for their February 2012 North American tour
Lock Up, the UK death metal group featuring genre veterans, Tomas Lindberg (At The Gates, Disfear), Shane Embury (Napalm Death, Venomous Concept), Nicolas Barker (ex-Cradle Of Filth, ex-Dimmu Borgir) and Anton Reisenegger (Criminal, Pentagram), has announced its first ever North American tour, a headlining run with Goatwhore and Strong Intention, set to kick off in February.
Goatwhore vocalist Ben Falgoust adds, "We know it is only a hand full of shows with Lock Up, but it will be a great start into the release of our next record. Not only are the Lock Up and Strong Intention guys good friends, they will both add to the complete assault of this aggressive line up. We have spoken to Nick and Shane of Lock Up numerous times about doing some tours together in the past. We are quite enthusiastic about hitting the road with them even if it is such a short run. This will not only be an insane attack of musical chaos but numerous nights of complete lawless behavior. Prepare yourselves for the assault!"
Said Lock Up drummer, Nick Barker, "After many attempts in the past, sadly to no avail, Lock Up finally gets to make it stateside for a string of shows with our good friends from Louisiana, Goatwhore. For us in Lock Up, to play with Goatwhore in the US is like a dream tour, as they are one of our favorite bands - and being good friends with them too only makes this package even more special to us. Be prepared North America 'cause we're coming over to blast your minds into deathgrind oblivion!"
Lock Up is touring in support of its third studio album, Necropolis Transparent, which hit stores in July on Nuclear Blast Records. Goatwhore will be touring in support of their new album, details for which are forthcoming.
