Valient Thorr Announces New Tour Dates

Valient Thorr is the baddest band on the planet (from another planet), rocking the adopted home of Earth since arriving here from Venus over fifteen years ago.

With six albums down, Napalm Records will release a seventh album later this year. In support of the new release, Valient Thorr will be hitting the road in North American on the "15 Years on Earth Tour." Joining the road festivities will be Pears, Black Wizard and label-mates Hammer Fight. The tour kicks off May 25th in Asheville, NC and runs through July 13th in Baltimore, MD.

Valient Thorr comments: "Alahoyus true believers! We are super psyched to be coming back after SO long. In this specific time period of savage psychic political and media warfare, and with the loss of so many true artistic voices- we need all Thorriors to slap their big bare foot on the nearest log like that lil rabbit in Bambi, and let them all know WE ARE COMING."
