Speaking about the forthcoming European tour, which hits Dublin's Voodoo Lounge on 5th October and London's Underworld on 7th October, Destruction mastermind Schmier states:"I`m totally thrilled that we got this amazing package together. When you go on tour you wanna give the fans the best they deserve: Nervosa- for me the best extreme female Metal band by far, Enforcer are my fave Metal - outfit with this pure 80s' touch and Flotsam And Jetsam are back stronger than ever, we are old mates, finally we will tour together again!
The singer / bassist adds: "I can`t wait to see Thrashers and Metal heads united this autumn, to party, mosh & bang with us - oh yes, sometimes it`s really great to be a Metal fan and play in a band - f**k yeah! See you all soon at the best party around!"
In a statement, Flotsam And Jetsam say; “This tour is going to be an absolute thrash fest! Flotsam And Jetsam is honoured to support the legendary Destruction, one of the strongest thrash bands to ever come out of Europe. We can’t think of anything better for this fall than getting back to our friends and fans in Europe for a month, hitting the stage and the streets with Schmier, Mike, and Vaaver, the Enforcer crew, and Fernanda and the women of Nervosa, night after night. If that doesn’t sound like trouble, we don’t know what does!”
Swedes Enforcer add; "Extremely excited to take a break in our new album process to go out on another European tour with our childhood heroes in Destruction and Flotsam & Jetsam. 100% total metal madness guaranteed! Don't miss out on the heaviest tour of the year."
Finally, Nervosa have added: "This is gonna be a badass thrash tour! Destruction has always been a huge influence for us and now touring with them is gonna be a hell of a dream come true!"
