Death Angel, San Francisco Bay Area thrash legends, are very pleased to announce that they will be playing four UK headline shows this August. Supports will be announced shortly.

Front man Mark Osegueda checked in with the following comment:

"I am extremely proud to announce that Death Angel will finally be returning to the UK for a string of headlining shows in August of 2017.

"These will be the first Death Angel shows in the UK since the release of our album 'The Evil Divide' and we have been biting at the bit to get back there.

"Expect nothing less than a special in your face set that will leave you exhausted, and satisfied! Yet! Wanting for more!

"See you on stage, in the pit, and at the bar."

Death Angel dates are as follows:

8th August: Wolverhampton, Slade Rooms
9th August: Glasgow, Audio
10th August: Bridgend, Hobos
11th August: London, Underworld

"Go and see Death Angel play live if you can – their stage show, plus their catalogue packed with 80s thrash metal classics, make them essential viewing."
Record Collector

In May of last year, Death Angel released their latest masterpiece 'The Evil Divide', their eighth studio album.

'The Evil Divide' was recorded at AudioHammer studios in Sanford, Florida with producer Jason Suecof (Trivium, Deicide), who previously worked on 2010s 'Relentless Retribution' and 2013s 'The Dream Calls For Blood'. Mastering duties were handled by Ted Jensen at Sterling Sound in New York City.

Monsters Of Rock In Full Flight is strictly limited to 300 worldwide and is available from 30th November but those ordering before 31st October will have their name published within a dedicated page in the book.

It's a deluxe 128 page hardback book in a metal flight case with a narrative by Jerry Bloom.

When promoter Paul Loasby put on the first Monsters Of Rock Festival in 1980 he could probably never have imagined it would become an annual event that would endure for so many years.

Featuring bands from the UK, Germany, Canada and USA, Loasby chose to stage the event at the Donington race circuit in the middle of England and it would prove to be a defining moment for many of the bands on the bill.

Not least for headliners Rainbow as it was the their last ever show to feature drum legend Cozy Powell. As it would happen it turned out to be the last for vocalist Graham Bonnet as well. For many of the other bands on the bill such as Scorpions, Judas Priest and Saxon, they were all on the ascendancy and would soon go on to even greater success.

Now in celebration of this first ever Monsters Of Rock Festival comes this hardback book full of glorious photos of the bands that took to the stage for that inaugural event including back stage shots. Most of these shots have not been published before which add to the uniqueness of this deluxe 128-page book which is packaged in its own flight case.

Also included are stories surrounding the event with tales and recollections from those who were there, including artists and fans alike. Each book will be signed by the author. The 300 will sell fast and definitely go on to become collector's items so order yours now right here to avoid disappointment.
