Irish thrashers GAMA BOMB are gearing up for a headlining UK tour, which kicks off on May 8th at the Underworld in London.
The string of shows will be GAMA BOMB's last before the band takes a break to work on the follow-up to their latest album, TALES FROM THE GRAVE IN SPACE.
GAMA BOMB have issued the following update ahead of the tour:
"We're inside forty tons of squid-like riffs right now, writing war-hooks and brimey melodies to throw in the faces of children and pandas, but will set sail for England and Scotland in May. So come along and join our motley crew as we dock in various scurvy-riddled UK towns to play ship-shape new dinties from our upcoming haunted bagpipe, 'Tales From the Ghostly Galleon', and while you're at it you can taste some of the freshest catch of the day, served up on our very own first mate's guitar.
"Come May, we order ye to don your tri-cornered hat, suck a lime and get ready for a plank-walkin', bilge-swillin', rig-climbin' time with your five favourite hearties, the crew of the good ship GAMA BOMB!"
