Frankfurt, Germany-based metal band COURAGEOUS has been added to the upcoming European tour featuring BEYOND FEAR (the new band fronted by former JUDAS PRIEST and current ICED EARTH singer Tim "Ripper" Owens) and VICIOUS RUMORS. A complete list of tour dates can be found at this location.

According to a press release, "COURAGEOUS play an unrivaled hybrid of modern and traditional metal, which they perform with bone-crunching intensity, though without ever-sacrificing the structure or the melody of their songs. Though aurally approaching the extreme, they inject a sufficient dose of crossover ingredients into the formula to set them aside from any particular trend. COURAGEOUS are simply to the fore of any identifiable fashion." "For us heavy metal means more than the constraints of the familiar musical and visual chains of the genre", explains vocalist Chris, "We carry this music in our hearts. Unlimited freedom, musical variety, loyalty to the scene and a healthy degree of positive revolt — those are the characteristics which we bear inside us since the glorious eighties, and which fuel our engine of life and music."

COURAGEOUS will be touring in support of its brand new album, "Downfall of Honesty", which was recorded at Black Solaris studios in Frankfurt, and produced by Uwe Lulis and COURAGEOUS.
