California thrash act Rattlehead recently released the self-financed album "Tales From The Gutter." Rattlehead has now posted a tour video online, which can be viewed below.
L.A. thrashers RATTLEHEAD will trek out across the country for their third self-booked US headlining trek in as many years. Dubbed the “THRASHED AND DETOURED 2010,” RATTLEHEAD will be joined this time by L.A. metal band HEXEN (and MANTIC RITUAL on select dates).
RATTLEHEAD will release their new full-length, “TALES FROM THE GUTTER” on July 9th, just in time for the tour’s start. The first single “Just Stay Down!” is already available from streaming on the band’s myspace. RATTLEHEAD will be joined by current INTO ETERNITY drummer Steve Bolognese, who is helping out the band as their regular drummer AJ Stixx is unable to do the dates.
HEXEN is still supporting their latest album, “STATE OF INSURGENCY” on OSM Records. The band have been building a strong reputation having received great reviews for the debut, as well as playing all over the southwest. They are now ready to see the rest of the country and will be performing a few new tunes from their next album, due to be recorded later this year.

Two of California’s most promising young metal acts, thrashers RATTLEHEAD (from LA) and DEVASTATOR (from Sacramento), will be teaming up to tour the country this summer bringing their own brand of metallic mayhem to over 40 cities. The tour, appropriately called "SLAUGHTERING THE MASSES", will be both bands’ first cross-country trek, although each has done successful west coast and regional touring.
Southern California’s RATTLEHEAD have long been a hard-working cornerstone of the L.A. metal scene. The group has a committed DIY attitude, as witnessed by previous regional touring and the release last year of their own disc, "Step Inside for the Slaughter," which they are still promoting. You can check out some of Rattlehead's music here.
Northern California’s DEVASTATOR has been having a great year. With the release of the group’s latest demo/EP, "Burn The Beast," the group have received major accolades from metal press, radio and fans who recognize the band’s commitment to true metal and their continued progression as players and songwriters. The trio will embark on the tour in support of the EP and plan to finalize a label partner this fall upon completion of the dates so they can begin recording their debut before year’s end. You can check out Devastator's music here.
