New-school Los Angeles thrashers BONDED BY BLOOD have been confirmed as one of the support acts for EXODUS on a three-date Mexican tour later this month. Also scheduled to appear are AGENT STEEL and TRANSMETAL.With their name hailing from a classic EXODUS album, it is no surprise that the members of BONDED BY BLOOD are excited about the dates. Singer Aladdin stated: "It seems unreal. We have played with them before out here in L.A. and the crowd was insane, but now we are taking it south of the border to Mexico. I dont think Mexico fans really know what they got themselves into. EXODUS and BBB — instant classic." The dates are as follows: Oct. 25 - Guadalajara Jalisco - Discotheque Organic
Oct. 26 - Leon Guanajuato - Cocktel Bar
Oct. 27 - Mexico City - Centro de Convenciones de Tlatelolco A four-and-a-half-minute video interview with BONDED BY BLOOD conducted by The Dude Von Doom can be viewed below. Hailing from Los Angeles, BONDED BY BLOOD's influences come from most of the old-school thrash acts (EXODUS, METALLICA, SLAYER, TESTAMENT, etc) but BONDED BY BLOOD adds a youthful energy and a fun element as well as its own twist on the two-decade-old genre. With a self-released six track EP, "Extinguish the Weak", released barely a few weeks ago in August 2007, BONDED BY BLOOD has taken the thrash underground by storm, resulting in inking a long-term contract with Earache Records. The debut BONDED BY BLOOD album will be released on Earache early 2008. For more information, visit www.myspace.com/bondedbyblood.
