Onslaught Confirms Upcoming North American Tour

British thrash veterans Onslaught will embark on their very first headlining North American tour in mid-March 2012. The band will be supported by Los Angeles thrashers Evildead on some West Coast dates and ex-Venom supergroup M-pire Of Evil over the whole tour. Onslaught guitarist Nige Rockett commented about the tour in a recent statement:

“Good Morning America… Here we are at very long last! ONSLAUGHT are super fucking stoked to announce our début tour of the mighty USofA and Canada. It’s been one hell of a long time coming, but we are now finally bringing the Scream For Violence tour to North America for 20 shows in March and April 2012.Just as we did in Europe, the UK and South America, we’ll be thrashing it up with a brutal 90-minute set featuring tracks off all five ONSLAUGHT studio albums. We can’t fucking wait…”
