Irish thrashers GAMA BOMB have just wrapped up their "Graveyard Disturbance" headlining European tour, and are now gearing up for their first ever North American tour. The band will be kicking off the massive North American trek on October 22nd and will be teaming up with the likes of OVERKILL, FORBIDDEN, EVILE, BONDED BY BLOOD and DRI.

GAMA BOMB frontman PHILLY BYRNE looks ahead to their first American tour:

"Touring in America is one of those things that every band, every musician or bedroom rockstar dreams about. Even bands from America don't get to tour America. We're lucky enough to get the chance and are really excited about it. If any tour we've ever undertaken can be described as a great adventure, this is it. It's going to be hard, but we're hard men. It's going to be girthy, but so are we. We'll wear the appropriate hats and drink the right liquors. You get the picture.

"We've toured with Overkill before and really look up to Blitz and the guys as friends and mentors, so it's going to be great to spend more time with them gigging, drinking and talking. The Overkill guys embody that American idea of 'shooting the shit' when they're backstage, so we're looking forward to shooting some shits with them. Forbidden we've never met, but are looking forward to hearing them do some of their classics and getting to know them.

"Evile and Bonded By Blood are, of course, good friends of ours. We've already been to some weird and wonderful places with those guys, and this is going to be the biggest adventure we've all had yet. Everyone will be sick of us within about an hour of the tour bus rolling out, but that goes with the territory I suppose. We're looking forward to seeing America, meeting cool people and sampling the many local moonshines the country has to offer. I head most of them won't even render you blind, which is great. Also, we will do good gigs while we are out there."
