Metal Hammer and Classic Rock have paired up to bring us the ‘Lords of the Riff’ tour, and they have now announced the headliners. Co-headlining the March 2014 UK tour are Monster Truck, and Scorpion Child, with the support acts still to be announced.
Metal Hammer editor Alexander Milas has said “It isn’t often that CLASSIC ROCK agrees with what we put on the office stereo, so you can imagine our surprise when not one, but two new METAL HAMMER favourites met with their approval, and a pint or two later a tour was born. MONSTER TRUCK and SCORPION CHILD are two phenomenal live bands, and we can’t wait to see them on these shores. Riff on!”
