We’ve backed them from the very start, and this week, The Defiled head out for what could prove their most important headline tour yet.
They’ve long established themselves as one of the UK’s best live bands and, on their day, are capable of stealing any show, but with last year’s ace Daggers album now in their pocket, they’re packing even more industrialised, hook-laden metal anthems than ever before.
Kicking off in Nottingham this Saturday (at an upgraded venue due to public demand, no less), the Londoners will be raging their way up and down Great Britain at a variety of towns and cities, so if you’re even remotely local to one of the shows, do yourself a favour and find out exactly why we had Daggers in our top 50 albums of 2013 and why they truly are a band where the hype is entirely justified.
Oh, and main support comes from fast-rising LA metallers Butcher Babies, who have certainly been making some waves of their own, Stateside. Don’t bet against them doing exactly the same over here.
