Voodoo Six To Support Iron Maiden On Tour, Reveals Album Details

British rockers Voodoo Six are excited to announce they will release new album "Songs To Invade Countries To" worldwide on April 29th via Universal Music, before embarking on the biggest tour of their career so far as main support to metal legends Iron Maiden on European dates. Prior to their dates with Iron Maiden, Voodoo Six will also be heading out on a run of headline U.K. club shows throughout March and April. Full details are available after the jump.

Iron Maiden founder and bassist Steve Harris comments: "I've been keeping an eye on Voodoo Six for a while now and they've produced a cracking new album with real promise. It's great to support true British up and coming talent such as theirs and it'll be a pleasure to have them out with us on tour."

Voodoo Six vocalist Luke Purdie adds: “This is a huge deal for us and an amazing opportunity to support arguably the most iconic band in metal history. We came up with the album title ‘Songs To Invade Countries To’ ages ago since we’ve been wanting to get our music across to European shores for a long time - but it’s been made a reality now that we’ve been chosen to support Iron Maiden on these dates. It’s going to be a very exciting year!”

"Songs To Invade Countries To" will consist of 11 tracks mixed by Tony Newton & Pedro Ferreira (The Darkness, Enter Shikari, Therapy?) and mastered by Ade Emsley (Iron Maiden, Steve Harris). The album release will be preceded by the release of brand new single "Sink Or Swim" on March 4th. Check out a video for the single below. The full album's track listing is as follows:

I saw Voodoo Six supporting Iron Maiden in 2005 in Hammersmith and they were fantastic. Good on them!
