Continuing to support their latest album dubbed The End of Chaos, Arizona thrash metal legends Flotsam and Jetsam have added a handful of one-off headlining shows in the U.S. for spring of 2020, consisting of stops in CA, KY, TX and NY.
Flotsam and Jetsam have been touring heavily this year and have just offered an extensive update through social media:
Headed home after a couple of great European festival runs over the last two months, along with 6-7 sell outs of our headline shows in Holland, Belgium, and Spain.
We rocked 3 shows with our Texas metal bros in Helstar, with Dark Sky Choir joining us for 2 of our Holland shows, 4 shows from coast to coast in Spain, with two talented bands with great guys; Spain’s Avulsed and Enemynside from Italy, and 1 with FURIA in Belgium… our FOH dude’s new band. All a blast to share the stage with. Thanks guys!
We had a blast at each festival; Italy’s Luppolo In Rock and Bang Your Head in Germany with our friends in Metal Church and Armored Saint, Gefle Metal Fest in Sweden with Nervosa, our awesome Brazilian sisters in metal, all in July. And this month at Leyendas del Rock and Alcatraz Festival, in Spain and Belgium, respectively. All well ran organizations. Much thanks to Filip for being so cool to us, as always, and Ju Tschamler and the rest of the BYH crew. It’s always cool to reconnect with our friends across the pond… the European metal community is a beautiful one to be a part of.
As always, thanks to our fans and the support you give us. It’s been cool to see the live fan base growing with the release of the last two albums, and their connection with our new songs, lyrically, vocally, and musically.
And a shout out to Jeroen De Vriese for rocking it at the sound board for us at the Alcatraz Festival, since Martin had to take off 15 mins after we finished up at Leyendas to work with Destruction at Brutal Assault. Much appreciated, bro! We’re grateful to have the Flotsam family that we have… at home and on the road.
It’s also an honor to have our gear companies; Pearl Drums, Sabian Cymbals, Vater Drumsticks, Aquarian Drumheads, Westone, Kemper Amps, ESP Guitars, Dean Guitars, Dingwall Guitars, Hartke, Ernie Ball Strings, and New Legion Rockwear, support us while we’re on the road. They all make us sound, look, and feel great while we’re out there.
We’ll be heading back to Europe next month with our East Coast brothers in metal, Overkill, along with our compadres in Destruction, to rage about 13 shows together, from Portugal up to Czech Republic, then back down into Belgium. And Flotsam is bringing the jalapeño infused Don Julio Anejo, Dr. Swami and Bone Daddy’s margarita mix, and salt… it’s almost time to get the party started!
We have few one offs through next April, then we’ll have more info for you regarding our 2020 touring dates in North and Central America, Europe, and beyond.
