HAVOK: Denver Thrashers Kick Off North American Tour With Sepultura Tonight

Denver thrash assault HAVOK kick off their latest run of dates with Sepultura, Death Angel, and Krisiun in Santa Ana, California tonight. The North American Kairos Tour 2012 will make its way through nearly three weeks worth of shows, coming to a close in New York City on April 30.

Comments vocalist/guitarist David Sanchez: “We’re hitting the road with Sepultura – Holy shit!! It’s a dream come true. This tour is going to be absolutely insane. All the bands totally rule and we’re expecting to see some rowdy crowds. Prepare to have a sore neck and remember, no karate in the pit!”

Adds drummer Pete Webber: “I can’t wait to start the upcoming tour with Sepultura, Death Angel and Krisiun! Sepultura was one of my very first influences in metal and in drumming! Catch HAVOK destroying a club near you!”

Upon their return from the road, HAVOK will unleash their new EP titled Point Of No Return. Set for release on May 22 in North America, the EP was recorded by the band with final touches by James Murphy (Death, Testament) and contains two new songs plus two HAVOK-ized cover tunes. The Point Of No Return precedes the band’s first European adventure beginning early May with Goatwhore, Angelus Apatrida and headliners 3 Inches of Blood.
