Destruction Tourposter 2016 FINAL 10 2016 WEB PREVIEW 2

After the first successful touring leg in September/October 2016 we return with the »Europe Under Attack 2017« tour in January/February. Support on this trek will come from Brazilian thrash metal institution NERVOSA and special guests. More details coming soon, find all current dates below!

Schmier: "It's time for “EUROPE UNDER ATTACK PART 2" in good old Europe! After the successful first run, a lot of fans were writing us and were afraid that we forgot them: NO WAY! The second leg will include most of the countries we did not play on the first half of the tour! We will bring NERVOSA from Brazil with us again, as they had an amazing response from the crowd EVERY night and of course they are friends and a perfect fit for every THRASH billing! We will finally play some countries and cities again that we did not thrash for a while - so we are all pumped up and excited about that! So see you soon in a wild moshpit to CURSE THE GODS together again ... FUCK YEAH!"

Thank you for an amazing tour!!!!

Live 2017

We made it back home safe after 5 weeks of crazy Metal Mayhem, broken tourbuses and many amazing shows all over Europe! CHEERS to all the metalheads that came to see this killer package and made this run a big success! It was fantastic to thrash with those awesome bands every night - it manifested our friendship and made an intense touring schedule very pleasant! 


We know many fans are waiting eagerly for more shows in Europe and there will be a second leg (with a different line-up) of the UNDER ATTACK tour on the old continent in January! 


Stay OLDSCHOOL - thanx for all the support!
