Acoda Announce UK Headline Tour Supported By Vera Cruz

Metal band Acoda have a tour lined up in October and November to celebrate the release of their debut album.

Acoda get ready for UK Tour

Alternative metal group Acoda have announced a UK headline tour, in anticipation for the release of their debut album Yours to Defend, out on October 28 on Best Before Records.

The tour takes place in November and December and they will be joined by hardcore support band Vera Cruz.

The release of their album follows from the release of their self-titled debut EP in Spring last year. Damon Tang, singer and guitarist of the group says of the new record: “We’re on a mission to connect with music lovers who want to bang their heads and scream their hearts out, the same way we do! Lyrically, the record’s a bit of a social commentary,” he continues. “I worry about the way the world seems to be going. There’s violence caused by miscommunication, mistrust, ignorance and deceit. In some parts, I’m being sarcastic or satirical, indifferent even. Things look pretty bleak, but I still feel like I can make a difference, however naive it may seem.”

The forthcoming abum is produced by Dan Lancaster, who has previously worked with artists such as Lower Than Atlantis, Don Broco and Mallory Knox.

The quartet of metallers played Download, Sonisphere, T In The Park and Slam Dunk festivals last year, alongside the likes of Funeral For A Friend, Don Broco and Arcane Roots. Kerrang!, Rock Sound, Metal Hammer, Radio 1, XFM and Scuzz have all previously shown their support for the group.

The video for the brand new single The Ludovico Technique from the upcoming album has also just been released.
