Adding to the bands list of accomplishments will be the opening band for the forthcoming Fear Factory European tour, which kicks off on November 15th in Portugal and will be hitting Spain, France, Germany, Netherlands, Italy, Switzerland, Czech Republic, Austria and Belgium, before returning to Ireland for shows in Dublin and Belfast, and finally, a string of dates in the UK finishing up in London’s Forum on December 13th.
This will be the bands most extensive European tour and will no doubt put Irish metal on the map for legions of metal fans across mainland Europe. When asked about the tour, drummer Claire Percival commented, “I’m just itching to get out on the road and smash it night after night! We have been working so hard for something like this and for this to now become a reality, is amazing! It’s just such a great opportunity for us and we’re going to grab it with everything we’ve got!”
A run of Summer European dates saw Dead Label’s Salvation in Sacrifice, (see below) getting picked up by SCUZZ TV and creating a huge amount of interest for the band. Their continuous rise in popularity saw them take to the Sophie Lancaster stage at this years Bloodstock Festival, causing a huge amount of talk amongst industry professionals and fans alike.
Following their crushing Bloodstock performance, an invitation to join the mighty GOJIRA on their Summer Irish dates at the end of August, presented itself to the band, inspiring the release of the much talked about title track from the bands yet to be released Throne of Bones opus (see below),which was recorded by producer Chris Rakestraw (Megadeth, Danzig, Soulfly, Deftones).
