Icepick's Danny Diablo To Tour With Necro

Icepick's Danny Diablo has been confirmed for Necro's upcoming North American headlining tour. The tour, which will also feature Psycho Realm and The R.O.C, will kick off in across Canada on January 8th, 2008 and hit select markets in the US.

"I am really happy that I will be touring with Necro, Pyscho Realm and Riviera Regime. I consider these hardcore rap groups to be family and it is an honor to bless the stage with them," says Diablo. "I'm gonna bring it N.Y.H.C. style to these shows. I can't wait to play the Canadian shows cause I have been getting mad love from my Canadian fans over the years. So get ready for Danny Diablo and his Thugcoremusic to bring down the house."

Danny Diablo is currently supporting his Suburban Noize debut, "Thugcore 4 Life." The album is a combination of New York style hardcore and hip-hop mixed together to create something truly unique. The album features guest appearances by some of music's biggest names Daddy X(Kottonmouth Kings), the Sub Hoodz Stress and Harley Havok, DJ Lethal(House of Pain), Slain, Danny Boy and La Coka Nostra's Big Left and Ceekay. Danny Diablo's video for the track "Mechanix" featuring Necro and the Transplants' Skinhead Rob can be viewed online on YouTube.

Danny Diablo rose through the ranks of the New York hardcore sceneduring the mid-90s as the frontman of the legendary Skarhead. Aftertouring the world several times over, appearing on the Warped Tour andinfluencing a slew of new age hardcore bands, Diablo joined forceswith Hatebreed frontman Jamey Jasta in Icepick. The duo's side-project, which took hardcore back to its roots, released their debut album "Violent Epiphany" in 2006 via Jasta's own Stillborn Records. Currently Diablo is working with producer Tim Armstrong (Rancid) recording his upcoming album, International Hardcore Superstar, for release in 2008.

"It's the same thing," Diablo says commenting on what brought this hardcore veteran to hip-hop. "I'm from the same neighborhood. I'm from Jackson Heights, Queens. Growing up, I was in an area of Queens that always had rappers walking around like Kool G Rap (and) Eric B. I grew up in rap. I listened to rap before I listened to metal. Then I got to metal and then I got to hardcore. But it's the same thing, hardcore and rap. In the '80s, they were talking about the same thing strugglesand stuff like that."
