San Francisco Bay Area metal veterans DEATH ANGEL have announced the second leg of their North American tour in support of the band's latest release, "Relentless Retribution". The new batcj of shows will take place approximately two months after DEATH ANGEL's previously announced headlining run in January/February with LAZARUS A.D., EARLY MAN, BONDED BY BLOOD and HEXEN.
Commented vocalist Mark Osegueda: "We are pleased to announce some additional dates to the North American 'Relentless Retribution' tour! We added some key West Coast cities that we hit on the SOILWORK tour and as promised, we are coming back to destroy them with our headlining set. Also included are certain territories of Canada that we haven't played on since the 'Act III' tour in 1990.
"I said before that this is going to be the most extensive tour of this band's career and here is more proof! So come out and witness the energy that is DEATH ANGEL live!
"[We] look forward to seeing some long lost friends and some brand new ones as well! See you on the road!"
