TOXIC HOLOCAUST Announce North American Tour Dates With Midnight

Following successful Winter tours alongside English Dogs and The Casualties, punk metal road warriors TOXIC HOLOCAUST are pleased to announce another stretch of North American shows this May which will include 11 dates with blackened thrash derelicts Midnight. The madness will commence on May 18 in Vancouver, British Columbia and roll for nearly three-weeks before coming to a close in Phoenix, Arizona.

Comments band leader Joel Grind: “We’ve had a few months off. I spent that time writing and recording a lot of new songs, but it’s getting near that time to hit the road again and this time it’s with our good friends and fellow Satanic demigods, Midnight. This is a tour that was conceived way back in 2007 but just finally came into fruition. Get ready for the onslaught coming your way!”

In addition, the band recently announced a two-week tour of Europe which includes select shows with Converge and numerous festival appearances. The journey begins on August 4 in Motala, Sweden at the Motala Hardcore Fest and wraps up on August 17 at Dinkelsbuhl, Germany’s Summer Breeze Festival.

The Portland, Oregon derelicts continue to tour in support of the infinitely punishing Conjure And Command full-length released via Relapse Records last year. The record, which Revolver championed for its “nuclear reactive riffage and Repo Man punk attitude,” continues to earn critical accolades. Cvlt Nation noted: “TOXIC HOLOCAUST have given fans a record that they will be able to devour now and for fucking years to come,” and The Onion’s A.V. Club opined: “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,.” The Washington City Paper agreed saying: “…it’s refreshing to hear a thrash band that is so single-minded about its whirlwind riffs and pastor-baiting lyrics,” while Hails & Horns praised: “If The Exploited and Nuclear Assault had a kid, TOXIC HOLOCAUST would take it’s lunch money and toss it in the dumpster.”

Conjure And Command is out now internationally and available across several formats including a limited edition, deluxe CD and DVD set that includes a full TOXIC HOLOCAUST live show. The album is available for purchase through Relapse HERE and iTunes HERE. In addition, check out the iTunes bonus track from the record – a cover of Repulsion’s “Helga Lost Her Head” –- at the band’s OFFICIAL FACEBOOK PAGE.
