The tentative dates have been released for the upcoming European tour featuring German thrashers DESTRUCTION, Swedish doom legends CANDLEMASS and Finnish deathrashers DEATHCHAIN.
Commented DESTRUCTION bassist/vocalist Marcel "Schmier" Schirmer, "After Mr. Waters [Jeff Waters of ANNIHILATOR, DESTRUCTION's original choice of touring mates] let us down, we have managed to bring the great CANDLEMASS with us on our European tour! Also the two support bands and the dates will [be announced] these days!
"I know some thrashers may think the doom metal legend doesn't really fit with a thrash band. Bullshit! We have had the pleasure [to tour with CANDLEMASS] in the Eighties already and it was a great package. Those who had the pleasure [to see the show] back then can surely confirm this, I think!
"We are lookin' forward to meet you all on the road again..."
