Spanish thrash metal powerhouse Angelus Apatrida have announced three Australian shows in late May 2016 as part of their Pacific Assault Tour which will also include dates in China, Japan and Taiwan.
The four-piece was formed in the year 2000 in Albacete, an isolated small Spanish town in the middle of nowhere (but not too far from Valencia – geographically pedantic Ed.).
“Albacete has no musical infrastructures at all, so we had to fight really hard and do everything by ourselves” states guitarist, singer and mastermind Guillermo Izquierdo.
The band’s name mixes Spanish and Latin languages and can be translated into English as Renegade Angels.
Influenced by the early Bay Area Thrash Metal and NWoBHM scenes, Angelus Apatrida crafted their career with two independent releases before signing with Century Media to release their last three albums: Clockwork (2010), The Call (2012) and Hidden Evolution (2015) which made it to an impressive #2 on the Spanish Charts.
Having shared the stage with legends such as Slayer, Megadeth, Testament and Kreator and clocking up some serious tour miles with the likes of Arch Enemy, Warbringer, Skeletonwitch, Havok and Dying Fetus,
The band will be taking no prisoners on their debut Australian tour this May! “We are really exited about our first time in Australia and we promise it’s gonna be killer. Hope you guys are ready because this is gonna be a a total ear-shaking, heads-exploding, earth-quaking and house-rocking hell of a tour!”
