VaderAfter a 3-year lull since their last trek west, Poland’s extreme metallers VADER are returning to the U.S. to headline the “Back To The Black 2013” tour in support of their 11th album, Welcome To The Morbid Reich.  Support will come from Vital Remains, Sacrificial Slaughter, Execration, and Extremely Rotten.  The tour launches on September 6th in Santa Ana, California and boomerangs back to The Whisky in Hollywood, California for the tour-closing show on September 29th.

Founded in 1983 as a thrash metal band, VADER’s extreme sound naturally evolved throughout the years into the death/thrash sound they’re now known for.  Credited with being the first band from Poland to put the country on the international metal map, VADER helped pave the way for fellow countrymen BEHEMOTH and DECAPITATED.  Twenty-seven years, seven EPs, and eleven studio albums later, VADER is still one of extreme metal’s most prolific, enduring, and respected bands.

Please consider granting VADER coverage for the show in your area (highlighted below) by way of an interview, a live review, or live photography. 

Music, album artwork, band logos, hi-res band photos, photo passes, and guest list accommodations are all available on request.
