SACRED REICH announce special guest and update European tour dates

SACRED REICH are stoked to announced that NIGHT DEMON will be joining them on their upcoming European tour as special guests. The Californian heavy metal trio completes the billing as there will be no further opening acts or local support bands.

In addition to this news, another date in Germany has been slated at the 130bpm in the town of Kassel on December 9th. The shows in Barcelona and Glasgow have been moved to bigger venues.

Surf Europe! SACRED REICH have previously announced a full European tour beginning in November. The legendary US thrashers are currently putting the finishing touches on their highly anticipated new full-length, which is entitled “Awakening” – their first studio album after a 23 years break! The “Awakening Tour” will cover 12 European countries.

SACRED REICH commented: “Recording is in full swing with producer Arthur Rizk at The Platinum Underground in Arizona”, revealed frontman Phil Rind. “We are so excited to be back in the studio after 23 years. Dave is currently killing it on the drums. Sounds sick! Our new record ‘Awakening’ is due this summer. Stay tuned! Tour dates across the planet coming your way!”

When SACRED REICH announced their split in the year 2000, they left a wide open gap – and not just for fans of thrash metal. Since their founding in Phoenix, Arizona in 1985, the Americans had created their own space within the metal scene with their intelligent critical and political lyrics and a punk influenced attitude that also reflected musically. Their debut full-length “Ignorance” immediately created an international buzz following its release in 1987, but their big breakthrough came with the EP “Surf Nicaragua” a year later. The EP’s title track – angrily unleashed by the unique voice of frontman Phil Rind – has remained an essential classic at any metal disco ever since. With their following albums “The American Way” (1990) and “Independent” (1993), SACRED REICH confirmed their reputation as one of the leading thrash metal acts. The band’s fifth studio album, “Awakening” is scheduled for release via Metal Blade Records this summer.
