SOILWORK vocalist Bjorn "Speed" Strid commented:
"We are stoked to tour with the most vicious thrashers from the west, famous for their gin drinking and intense live shows. DEATH ANGEL is a classic band that we've wanted to tour with for a long time. A perfect fit for the bill and surely an awesome touring companion. The summer of mosh is upon us. Don't miss out!"
DEATH ANGEL frontman Mark Osegueda added: "I can't begin to tell you how excited we are about the upcoming tour! I first heard SOILWORK on a Nuclear Blast promo compilation and they stood out from the first listen. The riffs, the drumming, and Bjorn's vocal attack! Then we were fortunate enough to play with them at With Full Force Festival a few years back and they killed it live!
As fate would have it, I was asked to participate in a Nuclear Blast 20 Year Anniversary compilation album called Out of the Dark, which Peter Wichers wrote the music for. I wrote the lyrics and melody for a song on that compilation called 'My Name is Fate'! Peter actually was also the producer, so I was fortunate enough to get to work with him in the studio! What a brilliant guy and and a great musician and now that he is back in the fold SOILWORK is back on top of their game. I think the musical styles and live performances of both bands will make every show on this tour a show not to be missed by any true fan of HEAVY music! So don't just hear about the aftermath, experience it for yourself!"
AUGURY lead singer/guitar player Patrick Loisel: "We are very proud to be part of such a great tour with SOILWORK, perform alongside legends such as DEATH ANGEL (a band whom I covered in my old bands), and join our brothers in Swashbuckle again. It's quite a thrill!"
