Locusta Announces U.S. Tour Dates

Ohio's Locusta will kick off the band's first tour of 2011 this Sunday in Richmond, Virginia with Battlemaster and War Graves. The short but ravenous trek will massacre eight more cities before winding down in Columbus, Ohio at the Carabar.

Commented guitarist Dru Silver: “After a year of absence from touring, we’re happy to announce that this coming week we will be kicking off our first tour of 2011 on the East Coast of the United States. Speaking of said absence, our drummer just became the proud father of a newborn daughter — congrats Simon! — and will be unable to join us. However this has granted us the opportunity for a very special lineup that you will only get a chance to see, as Alex Tomlin from Battlemaster will be stepping in to offer his services of tearing up the skins for us. Don’t miss it!”

7/31/2011 The Triple – Richmond, VA w/ Battlemaster, War Graves
