Onslaught Announces U.K. Tour Dates With Gama Bomb

British thrash metal veterans Onslaught has announced that they will be embarking on a headlining tour of their native United Kingdom this September, where they will be joined by Irish thrashers Gama Bomb, as well as Fallen Fate.

"However you think of it, it's gonna be an historic tour - a Barrage of the finest British and Irish thrash," says Onslaught's Sy Keeler.

"We think it's great that we'll finally get to tour with these guys," adds Gama Bomb frontman Philly Byrne. "It'll be like when people take their old and infirm family members on holiday, but a metal holiday."

September 22 - Maidstone, UK - Babylon Lounge
September 23 - London, UK - Garage
September 24 - Derby, UK - Redemption
September 25 - Plymouth, UK - White Rabbit
