This spring, fans will have the chance to witness several of Metal Blade’s youngest and brightest bands share the stage at venues across the US. The tour will include headliners, Psyopus, who are joined by DIY touring vets, Rose Funeral, critically acclaimed shred heavy newcomers, Woe of Tyrants, and Las Vegas’ latest and brutal offering to the world of extreme metal, Molotov Solution.

Metal Blade founder and CEO, Brian Slagel comments, “We are very excited to get our cool new bands all on the road together for a great price. We hope that everyone comes out to support the bands and check out the latest in metal.”

Psyopus’ latest masterpiece, Odd Senses, hit streets on February 17th and has blown away fans and critics alike – from the add explosive tracks like The Burning Halo to the epic nearly classical track, A Murder to a Child. This band’s live performance literally has to been seen to be believed. Main man Chris Arp is excited to join up with these bands on the road, “We’re psyched to own stages across this country with these rocking kats. Metal in your face, zinch, zinch, zinch!” – Chris Arp, Psyopus

“…ODD SENSES, is a mind blowing journey into the psychotic realm of extreme metal music.” Fangoria.com

Rose Funeral’s sophomore release and Metal Blade debut, The Resting Sonata, offers an impressive slab of death metal that, when delivered live, causes audiences to erupt into violent mosh pits. Expect gang vocals and death metal delivered with precision. The band adds, “We are all stoked to be on tour with some of our Metal Blade family members. This will definitely be a tour full of surprises for everyone. Don’t miss a show coming to your area or you will miss out on one of the best highlights of the year.”

“Rose Funeral has potential to actually change the scene, rather than add to its generic-ness.” Hails & Horns

Woe of Tyrants have wowed critics and guitar aficionados with, Kingdom of Might. Their ability to meld high flying near Dragonforce-esque guitars with the groove and aggression of death metal is coupled with a positive and thought-provoking lyrical message. Vocalist Chris Catanzaro comments, “Woe of Tyrants are extremely proud and grateful to represent our label, Metal Blade, on the Young Guns Tour this spring, alongside some fantastic bands. Getting to share the stage with our boys in Psyopus once again is an honor, and we’re looking forward to going out for the first time with Rose Funeral and Molotov Solution. Come and check out some great new talents, see you on the road!”

“Kingdom of Might IS habit forming and shouldn’t be taken with alcohol. For dry spells (when the album doesn’t have your complete attention) of 5 minutes or more, please consult a doctor (you’d have to be dead).” AbsolutePunk.net

Molotov Solution, one of Metal Blade’s newest additions, just finished recording their Metal Blade debut at Lambesis Studios in San Diego with the duo of Tim Lambesis and Daniel Castlman mixing. Their social commentary and intelligent lyrical attacks are sure to continue on this next installment. Guitarist Robbie Pina adds, “We are extremely excited and honored to be included in Metal Blades “Young Guns” tour. This will be our first tour as part of the Metal Blade family and our anticipation precedes us.”
