Upon A Burning Body Announces 2012 Festival Appearances

San Antonio’s very own Upon A Burning Body will finally be heading to the U.K. this summer to incite carnage at both Slam Dunk Festival and the might Download Festival at Donington Park. The band's publicist issued the following press release:

"Prepare yourself for a brutal, unrelenting array of unabashed aggression and sheer ferocity that will beat you to oblivion. This is what UPON A BURNING BODY delivers each and every time. The San Antonio based group will also make their much anticipated European touring debut this May alongside The Word Alive, For The Fallen Dreams and I See Stars, which is definitely an event not to be missed.

"UABB caught the metal scene by storm with their debut offering, ‘The World Is Ours’, chocked full of crushing Pantera-esque grooves, dynamic riffing and captivating hooks. Their live performance is simply unmatched, which quickly had their name being spread by the masses throughout the scene."

Danny Leal (vocals) states: "Getting offered this tour is a dream! We have always wanted to go to Europe and we have worked so hard for it. Shit, we have never even been on a plane. We know you guys are ready to party just as much as we are so let's make this the party of all party's every night. We look forward to making new friends and meeting the UABB family holding it down for us over there. Spread the word everyone and we all rage hard very soon."

The band's new offering, "Red, White and Green," was tracked with renowned producer Will Putney (For Today) at The Machine Shop in NJ and shows the band coming into its own unique sound.
