Thrashers RATTLEHEAD And DEVASTATOR Announce Summer U.S. Tour

Two of California's most promising young metal acts, thrashers RATTLEHEAD (from Los Angeles) and DEVASTATOR (from Sacramento), will team up for a U.S. tour this summer, bringing their own brand of metallic mayhem to over 40 cities. The trek, appropriately called "Slaughtering The Masses", will be both bands' first cross-country trek, although each has done successful West Coast and regional touring.

RATTLEHEAD (MySpace) has long been a hard-working cornerstone of the Los Angeles metal scene. The group has a committed DIY attitude, as witnessed by previous regional touring and the release of last year's self-financed disc, "Step Inside for the Slaughter", which they are still promoting.

With the release of the group's latest demo/EP, "Burn The Beast", DEVASTATOR (MySpace) has received major accolades from the metal press, radio and fans who recognize the band's commitment to true metal and their continued progression as players and songwriters. The trio will embark on the tour in support of the EP and plans to finalize a label partner this fall upon completion of the dates so they can begin recording their debut before year's end.
