New York hardcore act Sick Of It All has issued the following announcement about changes to the band's upcoming tour dates:
"FYI, there's been some changes to the Persistence tour line-up for Europe in December. Unfortunately, Sepultura backed out of doing it, but we do have an awesome band filling in for them: D.R.I. - the original thrash band who taught everyone (including us) how it's done.
"The tour also now has Casey Jones and Cruel Hand added to the bill, who are both making waves in the hardcore scene and no doubt will set it off. It's a massive line up - just remember to save some of your strength for the headliner, OK? ;-)
"The venue for the December 11 show has been changed to RWE Halle in Mulheim ad Ruhr, Germany. Don't forget to come out for the New York United tour in October featuring Sick of it All and Madball. It's gonna steamroll Europe!"
The Black N Blue Bowl event will be returning to New York this year for another edition. This year will see headlining performances from the legendary Cro-Mags as well as long running hardcore veterans Madball. Also on the bill will be H20, Skarhead, Wisdom In Chains, Yuppicide, Trapped Under Ice, Sand, Incendiary, H8 Inc. and Cruel Hand with more bands to be confirmed soon. The show will take place on May 15th at Webster Hall and will kick off at 2PM. Tickets are $25 in advance and $30 on the day.
