Metal Blade Records artists, Ravage, from Boston, MA, has announced an extensive North American Tour in support of their forthcoming full-length CD, "The End Of Tomorrow," which due out on August 18th.

The tour will be in essence, a collection of mini-tours featuring the best regional and local support acts appearing on short strings of dates. In the North East, Ravage will be joined by Las Vegas power metallers, SEVENTH CALLING, for a series of shows. Some tour dates will also include Heaven and Hell Record's East Coasters HELLRAZOR. Southern dates will include appearances by A LOWER DEEP, and in the Northwest, Ravage will be joined by SKELATOR for some dates. In addition, Ravage will make a special guest appearance at the Seattle tour date of STRATOVARIUS and will kick off the tour at the Mexico Metalfest in Mexico, Maine with PSYCHOSTICK. Further festival appearances will include The KC Power Fest in Kansas City with MANILLA ROAD, The Binghampton NY Metalfest with THE RODS and CAGE, The Iron and Steel Festival in New Jersey with ROSS THE BOSS (ex-MANOWAR) and FAITH FACTOR (ex-DEADLY BLESSING) and The Pathfinder Metalfest in Atlanta with HALLOW'S EVE.

Singer Al Ravage comments, "We've been playing around New England and spots in the East coast for years. We've played in Germany a couple of times. People have written to us for the longest time saying, "Why don't you play on the west coast? Why don't you play so-and-so town in middle America?" Well, this is finally our response. If you've ever wanted to see this band - or if you've just been waiting for a kick-ass traditional metal/thrash/power metal show to come to your town, this is your chance to see it. We're playing venues large and small in over half the states in the country so we're most likely coming to a venue near you and you have no excuse not to come and see a show. We're finally ready to bring this sound back across America. We hope America is ready for it."

At each appearance Ravage will conduct a FREE meet and greet and signing session before the show. Check the Ravage MySpace, for the latest updates, as shows are being added daily.

Ravage's new album, "The End Of Tomorrow," features 12 tracks and artwork by the legendary Ed Repka (MEGADETH, THE MISFITS, DEATH, AUSTRIAN DEATH MACHINE) and a cover of JUDAS PRIEST's classic, "Nightcrawler."
