TOXIC HOLOCAUST Announce Australian + Asian Tour Dates; Band Checks In From Europe

Portland, Oregon punk metal miscreants TOXIC HOLOCAUST are pleased to announce a short run of Australian and Asian dates to kick off 2012. The nine-date trek will commence on January 6 in Melbourne and serve as a precursor to the band’s previously announced February tour with English Dogs, The Casualties and Havok.

Commented band leader Joel Grind: “Some big news for our fans Down Under! We are finally coming back to Australia! I’m really looking forward to this as I’ve been trying to get my ass back down there for the past six years! Expect no less than a total onslaught, with a live set that includes tracks from all of our albums.”

“Masters of the hook and the earworm, TOXIC HOLOCAUST will have Conjure And Command playing in my head for a long time.” —

TOXIC HOLOCAUST have given fans a record that they will be able to devour now and for fucking years to come…” — Cvlt Nation

“….sweetly redolent of thrash, d-beat, and raw sewage, the album simmers with tar-thick riffage, staggering breakdowns, and a corroded dose of self-loathing. If this is what TOXIC HOLOCAUST‘s next decade is going to look like, bring it on.” — The Onion’s A.V. Club

“…it’s refreshing to hear a thrash band that is so single-minded about its whirlwind riffs and pastor-baiting lyrics.” — The Washington City Paper
