Commented bass player Drex Exel: "After all the debaucherous shenanigans from the DEATHSTARS tour, we're really looking forward to getting back out on the road again, especially with a band that have been vacant from Europe for far too long.

"We're still nursing a fair few injuries from our last trek and I'm sure we will have a few more additions to the list after this one (although we're definitely going to be keeping our drummer away from the roof of the tour bus this time around). We're also looking forward to playing some shows overseas as the only time we've managed to get off this island previously have been for our annual family outing to Guernsey. Our bags are still unpacked from the last tour so we’re ready and raring to go."

THE DEFILED has been stalking U.K. music venues for the past few years, creating its unique mixture of groove-laden hardcore metal with an electronic ambience that provides a welcome separation from any band treading the boards on the British metal scene at the moment. Add to the mix that THE DEFILED is just about the most aggressive live band you'll have seen for a long time, returning to the good old days of excess that's been vacant for far too long, they promise to be a welcome addition to the touring lineup. Smashed instruments, band members in with the audience and the odd battered and bruised spectator thrown in for good measure all make up a live show that stands above and beyond the call of duty.
