Rock the Nation announced the Thrashfest Classic Tour featuring headliner Sepultura (performing "Beneath the Remains", "Arise" and "Chaos A.D."), co-headliner Exodus (performing "Bonded By Blood", "Pleasure Of The Flesh" and "Fabolous Disaster"), Destruction (performing "Sentence Of Death" and "Infernal Overkill") and Heathen ("Breaking The Silence" and "Victims Of Deception"). Another opening act will be announced soon.

The announcement reads:

"Back to the 80ties, back to the roots! Tour-promoter Rock The Nation turns back the time for you headbangers, catapulting you back into the glorious 80ties -- the unforgettable days of prime for thrash metal - with a phenomenal package of top-acts. Hardly another period of time carries so much metal-history with it than this one. Rough, rapid and impulsive sounds dominated the whole music-industry at that time. Breath-taking masterpieces of metallic art, which still enjoy authority and significance these days, emerged out of the creative urge of charismatic musicians and bands. Now the time is right to let the flair, the feeling and the sounds rise again! Thrashfest Classics is a pure celebration for the high-culture of thrash metal. Some of the most influential combos will perform their cult-albums in full length."
