Black Sabbath / Guns N’ Roses Supergroup Deadland Ritual Announces First Tour
It's on! Deadland Ritual, the new supergroup featuring former Black Sabbath bassist Geezer Butler, ex-Guns N' Roses drummer Matt Sorum, Billy Idol guitarist Steve Stevens and Apocalyptica and Scars on Broadway vocalist Franky Perez, will be hitting the road.
The band just announced a European tour that currently would be the first shows that the group has played. The trek launches June 4 in Copenhagen, Denmark and continues through the month, culminating the weekend of June 21-23 at the Hellfest in Clisson, France.
The group recently released their first song and music video with the track "Down in Flames." Have a look and listen to the clip below, and if you like what you hear, the song is available here.
As for the upcoming dates, the band is expected to play a mix of original material along with deeper cuts from their previous bands' pasts. "[It won't be] the typical songs you expect," adds Sorum.
"I was working on a new solo album when this came to light," Butler notes. "It was appealing for me to work in a band environment because that's what I'm used to, so [it] feels really natural. I'm really looking forward to playing shows with these guys."
