March 29, 2007

U.K. metallers CHOKEHOLD have announced their participation in the forthcoming U.K./Irish tour of metal legends SAXON. Drummer Lawrence Paterson comments: "F***king YEEESSSS! To share the stage night after night with such a renowned and ultimately respected band as SAXON is an honour, but to be personally invited is truly special. We can't thank SAXON and their management enough for this opportunity. Get ready — the 'Love Hammer' is coming, and we've got a Sax-on…"

CHOKEHOLD will make its national TV debut as part of Harvey Goldsmith's "Get Your Act Together – The Showdown". The show will air on E4 at 10:00 p.m. on Tuesday, April 10. the group's new album, "Sweet Sense of Genocide" — the follow-up to 2006's Nick Hemingway-produced "The Killing Has Begun" — will be released later this year.
