Bolt Thrower 2013 US Tour 'Return to Chaos'


This is turning out to be a great fucking year for shows!  Influential Death Metal band Bolt Thrower have announced a few tour dates in the US titled “Return to Chaos” which coincide with their upcoming appearances at Maryland Deathfest and Chaos in Tejas. The shows will mostly hit the West Coast besides the aforementioned fests and a show in Chicago at Reggies on June 1st. Support on the tour will be legendary Death Metal bands Benediction for all non-fest shows and Autopsy for the Pomona & Oakland dates!

Bolt Thrower have not played the US since their 2009 Maryland Deathfest dates and have not toured here since 1994 (which itself was cut short) so suffice to say this is a big deal.  Their last album was 2007's "Those Once Loyal" and plans for a followup were scrapped in June 2008 after the band were dissatisfied with the material they had written. In a statement they said that they didn't want to release anything unless they were convinced it was at least as good as their last album, and so plans to record a new LP were "postponed indefinitely."  Tickets go on sale Friday 2/15 at Noon CST for Chicago.
