Act_of_Defiance_2016

LA thrashers Act of Defiance – featuring vocalist Henry Derek (ex-Scar The Martyr), guitarist/vocalist Chris Broderick (ex-Megadeth), bassist Matt Bachand (Shadows Fall, Times of Grace) and drummer Shawn Drover (ex-Megadeth) – will soon kick off a series of North American headlining shows along with a select few gigs supporting Hatebreed and DevilDriver. The band are also planning to visit Philippines for the first-time ever for an appearance at Pulp Summer Slam, performing alongside Lacuna Coil, Belphegor, We Are Harlot and others.

Among those spring headlining dates are a few stops in NY, specifically NYC at Blackthorn 51 on June 12 [tix] and LI at Amityville Music Hall on June 13 [tix tba]. All announced dates are listed below.

AoD are touring in support of their 2015 debut full-length on Metal Blade Records titled Birth and the Burial (stream a few songs from that at the end of this post)
