Below is our complete Bonded By Blood news coverage, including columns and articles pertaining to the band. Some articles listed may be indirectly related, such as side projects of the band members, etc.
Irish thrashers Gama Bomb announced that the band is forced to drop off the planned tour of North America from August to September 2013 with Artillery, Bonded By Blood and Fueled By Fire. The reason: delays in securing visas.
"We’re really gutted to have to make this call, but we’ve found ourselves caught in a massive web of red tape and time’s run out to make the tour possible in the way we want it to be," said singer Philly Byrne.
"We’ve been faced with barriers and delays all for months now, and we held off on making this call, but ultimately we’re dealing with big organs of state where there’s no one person you can ring up and make it happen."
"Even worse than all the behind-the-scenes crap that’s gone on, letting our fans down is the hardest thing to stomach. If you bought a ticket for one of these cancelled shows, we’re coming back soon to make it up to you. We’re already working on making it happen."
Bassist Joe McGuigan commented: "We’ve done our best to make this tour happen but unfortunately this whole process is out of our hands. We want to apologize to our friends in Artillery, our brothers in Bonded By Blood, and most of all to all the US thrashers out there."
The tour is set to commence in San Diego on August 21st. More...

On March 16th, 2012, Motorbreath Entertainment intended to create one of the best lineups featuring bands from the “New Wave of Thrash Metal.” Exmortus, Bonded By Blood, Havok, Speedwolf and Witchaven were on the bill to play Betsy’s Bar at Austin’s annual South By Southwest (SXSW) Festival. Oregon’s Spellcaster offered a style more in line with the New Wave of Classic Metal scene that has, in a sense, run parallel with the new thrash movement.
Besides Corrosion of Conformity who came to town with their crossover thrash, “Animosity” lineup, thrash metal is an endangered species in Austin during this time of the year. When I saw Motorbreath had organized a lineup of such great, young thrash bands, I had to help with promotion. Unfortunately, a number of mishaps led to Betsy’s Bar canceling the show. However, thanks to Alex Campos of local metal marauders, Beyond The Blood, the show went on! More...

Metal Underground previously reported the cancellation of Motorbreath's SXSW show featuring artists such as Havok, Bonded By Blood and Spellcaster. We contacted Motorbreath owner and show booker, Tristan Spears to get his side of the story. Now, in all fairness, we bring our readers the other side of the story told by a representative of Betsy's Bar. More...
Motorbreath Entertainment's SXSW Showcase contained a tremendous bill of new school thrash and heavy metal artists such as Bonded By Blood, Havok, Speedwolf, Exmortus, Witchaven and Spellcaster. The stellar lineup was the only old school-metal oriented event at SXSW, which was cause for Metal Underground to sponsor the event. Unfortunately, the March 16th show at Betsy's came to a abrupt and disappointing end. After the first three bands performed, Motorbreath founder, Tristan Spears announced that if more people didn't drink more alcohol, the show would be canceled. After much deliberation, the show was indeed canceled.
Spears provided Metal Underground with the following statement: More...
