Hot on the heels of their valentines run of dates, the relentless & formidable BLEEDING THROUGH are heading back for another bite of the UK. The O.C. faves have been hard at work on their new album, set for release on Trustkill/Roadrunner in September, so expect to hear some new tunes being showcased! Look for kids swinging from the ceiling at the following: 26 June – London Underworld 27 June – Nottingham Rock City 28 June – Glasgow King Tuts 29 June – Manchester Jilly’s Rockworld 30 June – Newport TJs Returning with them will be the aggressive battery that is ZAO. Treating the UK to a mere 2 shows last year, Zao return in support of the apocalyptic Ferret/Roadrunner album ‘The Funeral Of God’. Zao combine elements of Bay Area thrash metal, precision tuned Carcass-like speed metal and the hard-fought credibility of hardcore with a dark vision that recalls Nick Cave, Danzig or Johnny Cash, and the (perhaps even dubious) lilt of British pop music and the more avante-garde outer reaches of rock n’ roll. Bring earplugs, and a safety helmet.
