Having announced their reformation and return to the live arena last month, British extreme metal masters Akercocke have revealed a run of UK shows, with six dates being added to the already scheduled appearance at BLOODSTOCK Festival in August, including the band’s first performance in Jersey, Channel Islands.
After a five year break from during which individual members pursued other projects, three founder members – Jason Mendonca, Paul Scanlan and David Gray – have returned to their original purpose; to create new, exciting and innovative music. Complimented by the addition of bass player Nathanael Underwood, AKERCOCKE are presently producing their 6th studio album, which is tabled for an Autumn release.
Front man Jason says of the forthcoming tour “Circus Akercocke returns to the road at last. After our five year break from the live circuit, the band is charged, primed and ready to unleash our signature metal assault. Expect a barrage of rampant beats, face-melting guitar work, fan favorites’ from the past and killer new tunes from the present. See you down the front!”
The band posted a new track after premiering on Daniel P Carter’s BBC Radio One Rock Show.
