European tour announced!!

Destruction Tourposter 2016We will be hitting the road for a full European headlining tour this fall.

DESTRUCTION will join forces with US-based thrash metal monsters FLOTSAM & JETSAM, the Swedish metal maniacs ENFORCER and Brazil's NERVOSA.

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 Metalband 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!  I can`t wait to see Thrashers and Metalheads united this autumn,  to party, mosh & bang with us - oh yes, sometimes it`s really great to be a Metalfan and play in a band - FUCK YEAH! See you ALL soon at the best party around!"

FLOTSAM & JETSAM comments:
“This tour is going to be an absolute thrash fest! Flotsam and Jetsam is honored 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!”

"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."

NERVOSA says about the tour:
"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!"
