Anger As Art To Support Bitch On Eurpean Tour Dates

L.A. based act Bitch (led by front woman Betsy Bitch) will do a short tour of 3 countries in Europe this spring, culminating in the band's featured appearance at Germany’s Keep It True Festival on April 29th, 2011. Anger As Art will support as both warm-up act on a few dates, and as Betsy’s backing band in Bitch (Anger As Art will not be performing at the Keep It True festival).

"Planning this tour has been bitter-sweet" says Betsy. "We lost our drummer/founding member Robby Settles to Leukemia last year, and it took the wind out of our sails. We already had KIT booked before Robby passed, and other members were less than enthused about going over to play the show. When I spoke with our bassist Steve Gaines, he had just played Keep It True with Abattoir in 2009, and was adamant that it was an opportunity that shouldn’t be missed. Steve offered that if we couldn’t find anyone to fill in that Anger As Art would be honored to perform as Bitch. The rest is history."

Says Steve Gaines: “Bitch was a huge influence on me, and I have been honored to be a member for the past 5 years. Needless to say, this has been a very hard time with Robby’s passing. However, I can say that there are no better guys to ‘be’ Bitch than AAA. We all used to see each other at Bitch shows in LA back in the 80’s, and respect Betsy and their heritage – and that is what we plan to do. Give metal fans in Europe Bitch in full effect.”

Also on the tour package will be Netherlands based metal band Persistense. The dates are as follows:

Friday 22 April: Little Devil, Tilburg - Holland
Saturday 23 April: The Rambler, Eindhoven – Holland
Sunday 24 April: De Vinger, Den Haag – Holland
Monday 25 April: Metro, Waarschoot – Belgium
Wednesday 27 April: De Rots, Antwerp – Belgium
Friday 29 April: KIT Germany
