Brazil's Claustrofobia Announce Headline European Tour!
"Get ready for brutal metal with real feeling from the fucking third world! We are gonna put the mosh pit on fire so pay attention and join us!"
Heady advice from vocalist and guitarist Marcus D'Angelo on what Europe can expect when Brazilian thrash heavyweights Claustrofobia come crashing into town on their headline Visceral European Tour.
The band announce a 29 date tour taking in eleven different countries over nearly two months on the road, and include appearances alongside the likes of Primordial and Fleshgod Apocalypse at Portugal's SWR Festival [01/05/15]. More dates will be added in the coming weeks.
For now to give you a taste of what to expect on the tour, watch the band's video for track 'Bastardos do Brasil' from most recent album release, Peste [2011/2014]
Claustrofobia has been causing brutal thrash mayhem in Brazil and beyond for the past twenty years and the band is looking forward to celebrating their anniversary with their European fans!
Comments Marcus, "To play live is the real ambition of bands like us. We don't like 'internet bands'; we prefer to play face to face. We will play gigs almost everyday so we will spread our music around."
The band has also released an exclusive DVD entitled Visceral 20 Years
showcasing Claustrofobia's journey to the well-oiled thrash machine that it is today.
And it's not just about the celebration of the past twenty years, it's about looking to the future too as the band is only recently out of the recording studio with none other than producer Russ Russell [Napalm Death, The Exploited, Evile] at the helm.
"We are very excited with the results!", states Marcus. "It is gonna be a great album with a futurist vibe and it will hopefully open up our own sound in a new way.'
The untitled album, which as of yet does not have any label attachment, can be expected nearer the end of 2015.
