It's on! Deadland Ritual, the new supergroup featuring former Black Sabbath bassist Geezer Butler, ex-Guns N' Roses drummer Matt Sorum, Billy Idol guitarist Steve Stevens and Apocalyptica and Scars on Broadway vocalist Franky Perez, will be hitting the road.
The band just announced a European tour that currently would be the first shows that the group has played. The trek launches June 4 in Copenhagen, Denmark and continues through the month, culminating the weekend of June 21-23 at the Hellfest in Clisson, France. The group recently released their first song and music video with the track "Down in Flames."
As for the upcoming dates, the band is expected to play a mix of original material along with deeper cuts from their previous bands' pasts. "[It won't be] the typical songs you expect," adds Sorum.
"I was working on a new solo album when this came to light," Butler notes. "It was appealing for me to work in a band environment because that's what I'm used to, so [it] feels really natural. I'm really looking forward to playing shows with these guys."
