Rock the Nation presents - Heathen, Generation Kill and Dust Bolt thrashing Europe! Grab your denim vests and leather jackets, put on those hi-tops and guzzle down a few cold beers: because a true thrash metal triumvirate is ready to lay waste to a bunch of European clubs!
The following press release was issued about the tour:
"Leading the mob will be San Francisco veterans Heathen, founded in 1984 – amongst others – by Exodus guitarist Lee Altus, they released two landmark albums with 'Breaking the Silence' (1987) and 'Victims of Deception' (1991) before things got a bit quiet in camp Heathen. They returned with the thrash manifesto 'The Evolution of Chaos' in 2010, and now the guys are busy working on new material.
"Generation Kill are being led by Exodus front beast Rob Dukes and offer a nasty mix of thrash metal and hardcore. Check out their brilliant debut 'Red, White and Blood' and bang those heads! The line-up is completed by Munich-based newcomers Dust Bolt who indulge in old school thrash metal goodness! They have recently released their great debut 'Violent Demolition.'" More...

The song hails from Dust Bolt's debut album for Napalm Records, "Violent Retribution," released last August. Hailed by Metal Hammer as "neck-snapping fun" and recommended by MSN Entertainment "if you're into excellent thrash metal that honors its roots rather than sound like a limp imitation," Dust Bolt demonstrate with "Violent Demolition" that the band is hungry, bursting with energy and highly explosive.
The following press release was also issued about the band: "The love for Bay Area thrash metal is evident in the songs of the German quartet, but the use of modern elements gives their sound a highly unique character. The band even corralled Sepultura's Derrick Green to participate on the track 'Deviance' for the perfect finishing touch, with Andrei Bouzikov (Municipal Waste) providing the fitting artwork."

"Hey thrashers! We just want to thank everyone for a kickin ass year 2012!! We experienced so many things, met so many people and friends, it's just unbelievable! Every such moment just shows us the fun of making music, traveling around and spending time with other crazy thrash maniacs and it shows us, that this is the one thing we want to do!
"Many things changed in 2012 (to the better!!), and I can't even name them all or thank everybody who made all the things possible, but I think you know who you are! We signed with Napalm Records, released our debut album Violent demolition, played many shows in great places and we already started working on new song for our 2nd album which will probably come out end 2013/begin 2014.
"As far as I can't emblaze every highlight of this year, we just want to thank everybody who supported us by joining our shows, buying our stuff, giving us beer or whatever the fuck ;-) but finally we want to thank every single headbanger acting like mad in front of the stage - you keep us doing this and we will come to your town in 2013 and kick ass!! :-)
"Keep moshing until then! And arrange a date in the gym for training your neck muscles for our 2013 shows!" More...
