Rattlehead and Devastator Announce Summer Tour

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.
