Recently reunited seminal grindcore/extreme metal outfit BRUTAL TRUTH have announced forthcoming U.K. and Japanese tours as well as select festival dates.
After two very well-received performances at this year's Chicago's Electric City Rockfest and BW&BK 6-Pack Weekend IV, BRUTAL TRUTH has expanded their touring plans to include tours of the United Kingdom and Japan in addition to the previously announced headlining position at the 2007 Maryland Deathfest. Additionally, the band will headline the third annual Los Angeles Murderfest in March.
The band's U.K. tour, being sponsored by Terrorizer magazine, will begin early February and include support from NARCOSIS and TOTAL F*CKING DESTRUCTION. BRUTAL TRUTH bassist Dan Lilker comments: "The grind freaks in the U.K. have always been very good to BRUTAL TRUTH, which makes sense since it is the area that put grindcore on the map in the first place. We can't wait to get over there and destroy, so get ready for some sonic mayhem!"
BRUTAL TRUTH will then head to Japan in early March headlining Extreme The Dojo Tour Vol. 17 with support from Poland's VADER.
BRUTAL TRUTH has recently seen the reissue of their heralded 1997 masterpiece "Sounds of the Animal Kingdom". The re-mastered and repackaged version comes complete with the preceding "Kill Trend Suicide" mini-CD (1996), bonus video footage in the form of the band's "Dead Smart" video, extensive and exhaustive liner notes from the band, and a foreword from "Choosing Death" author Albert Mudrian.
