The Boy Will Drown Issues Final Report from Tour With Eradication and Forgettoforgive

British technical death metallers THE BOY WILL DROWN have just completed a headlining tour of Europe. The band played throughout mainland Europe and the UK with support from the likes of FORGETTOFORGIVE and ERADICATION, and are now having a break before heading back out on the road for another European tour in January.

THE BOY WILL DROWN bassist JAMES BATES looks back on the tour:

"It has been almost a month of touring and what an experience it has been - three amazing bands each leg and lots of places."

"29th September - 8th October; It was great touring with the 'Heights' guys to kick start it off with gigs in Edinburgh and Grimsby, which were particularly memorable, encountering our first fan with a TBWD tattoo (photos on our social networking sites). These boys are awesome and will no doubt go on to big things. Writing this email about the start of the tour seems such a long time ago now."

"9th October - 18th October; Touring round mainland Europe to Holland, Italy, Austria and Belgium (with a lil visit to Switzerland in between) was absolutely incredible - the gigs we've done and sights we've seen will never be forgotten. The 'Forgettoforgive' guys are possibly some of the nicest, most dedicated guys we've ever met and having the opportunity to take our good friend Ryan Mason (from Ryan Mason Imaging) to document and help out was a real pleasure. Tour highlights have been uploaded to our Tumblr (http://tbwd.tumblr.com) by Ryan and it's amazing. You should all check it out. More videos and photos will be coming from him soon."

"20th October - 26th October; The final leg of the tour was with 'Eradication'. This band is incredibly talented, nailed every show and is the funniest group of individuals we've ever had the pleasure to encounter. Such memorable scenarios include Nick (bass player) cutting off his wonderful ginger locks, Adam (drummer) and his Primark all-in-one PJs dancing in a Newcastle club, a variety of South Park quotes and other drunken beer-bong shenanigans mixed with some tomfoolery."

"We've had an amazing time and can't wait to get back on the road again!"
