Ravage America


08/03/2009
.
(Metal Blade) Ravage, from Boston, MA, are hell-bent on resurrecting and breathing new life into traditional heavy metal in the United States. As part of their grand design to do so, the band has announced an extensive North American Tour in support of their forthcoming full-length CD, The End Of Tomorrow - due out on August 18th!

Ravage will bring the band's unique mix of early 80's NWOBHM, late 80's bay area style thrash and late 90's European power metal to most parts of the USA in addition to select dates in Eastern Canada.

The tour will be in essence, a collection of mini-tours featuring the best regional and local support acts appearing on short strings of dates. In the North East, Ravage will be joined by Las Vegas power metalers, Seventh Calling, for a series of shows. Some tour dates will also include Heaven and Hell Record's East Coasters Hellrazor. Southern dates will include appearances by A Lower Deep, and in the Northeast, Ravage will be joined by Skelator for some dates. In addition, Ravage will make a special guest appearance at the Seattle tour date of Stratovarius and will kick off the tour at the Mexico Metalfest in Mexico, Maine with Psychostick. Further festival appearances will include The KC Power Fest in Kansas City with Manilla Road, The Iron and Steel Festival in New Jersey with Ross The Boss and Faith Factor (ex-Deadly Blessing) and The Pathfinder Metalfest in Atlanta with Hallow's Eve.

Singer Al Ravage comments, "We've been playing around New England and spots in the East coast for years. We've played in Germany a couple of times. People have written to us for the longest time saying, "Why don't you play on the west coast? Why don't you play so-and-so town in middle America?" Well, this is finally our response. If you've ever wanted to see this band - or if you've just been waiting for a kick-ass traditional metal/thrash/power metal show to come to your town, this is your chance to see it. We're playing venues large and small in over half the states in the country so we're most likely coming to a venue near you and you have no excuse not to come and see a show. We're finally ready to bring this sound back across America. We hope America is ready for it."

At each appearance Ravage will conduct a FREE meet and greet and signing session before the show. Check the Ravage myspace, http://www.myspace.com/swwr, for the latest updates, as shows are being added daily.

Ravage's new album, The End Of Tomorrow, will be released world-wide on Metal Blade Records on August 18th - the 12 track full-length features artwork by the legendary Ed Repka (MEGADETH, THE MISFITS, DEATH, AUSTRIAN DEATH MACHINE) and a cover of Judas Priest's classic, Nightcrawler. A special pre-order package for the album will be announced soon. Confirmed tour dates are below.
