Lock Up, the UK death metal group featuring genre veterans, Tomas Lindberg (At The Gates, Disfear), Shane Embury (Napalm Death, Venomous Concept), Nicolas Barker (ex-Cradle Of Filth, ex-Dimmu Borgir) and Anton Reisenegger (Criminal, Pentagram), has announced its first ever North American tour, a headlining run with Goatwhore and Strong Intention, set to kick off in February.
            Said drummer, Nick Barker, “After many attempts in the past, sadly to no avail, Lock Up finally gets to make it stateside for a string of shows with our good friends from Louisiana, Goatwhore. For us in Lock Up, to play with Goatwhore in the US is like a dream tour, as they are one of our favorite bands - and being good friends with them too only makes this package even more special to us. Be prepared North America ‘cause we're coming over to blast your minds into deathgrind oblivion!”

Paiste’s Artist Endorsement Policy, as established in 1957 with the creation of «Drummer Service», is based entirely on the artist’s appreciation for Paiste products, Paiste’s recognition of the artist’s career and distinguished status among the drum and percussion community, and mutual respect and loyalty.


Brazil’s triumphant heavy metal export, Sepultura, has announced the addition of drummer, Eloy Casagrande, to its arsenal of world-class musicians, replacing Jean Dolabella as the band’s full-time percussionist.
            The 20-year-old drum prodigy from Sao Paulo, Brazil is more than eager to begin his career with the veteran metal icon.
            “When I got the invitation to join Sepultura, I was in shock,” said Casagrande. “I'm a fan of the band for years; it'll be an honor to play with them.”
            Commented guitarist, Andreas Kisser, “I'm sure Eloy will do a great job with Sepultura. He's already a musician who shows a lot of strength and technique, although he's young. We did a rehearsal with him and it was fantastic; he played the old and new material as if he was in the band for a long time. Sepultura will show the world another Brazilian talent on the drums.”
Sepultura is currently home in Brazil preparing for a European run with Exodus and Destruction, which will kick off later this month. The band is touring in support of its 12th studio album, and Nuclear Blast Records debut, Kairos, which hit stores in July.
altMötley Crüe are excited to announce that Tommy Lee will be bringing his mind blowing 360 degree drum roller-coaster to the UK for their December co-headline tour with Def Leppard!
The wonders of the wheel will be spectacularly unveiled during Tommy Lee's thrilling drum solo where he is launched into multiple loops and pyrotechnics while continuing to perform.

Not one to keep the fun to himself, the drummer also hand picks a fan from the audience to join him for his crazy ride at every show.
Check out just a tease of what to expect this winter:
Daredevil, Tommy Lee says "This idea came about from when I was a kid going to concerts. Whenever the drummer started his drum solo, I wondered why people would leave to go get a beer, buy a T-shirt, restroom, whatever!! I wanted to show people what happens behind the drum set, so I decided to expose it all by flipping the drums vertical, upside-down making them disappear and fly over the audiences heads! Mötley Crüe brings you on a thrill ride, jump on the 360! Let's do this! By the way, it's really f*****g difficult playing while on this ride!"
The band's highly anticipated tour kicks off next month in Birmingham. Witness the insanity for yourself at the following dates:
TUESDAY                    6          BIRMINGHAM LG ARENA
THURSDAY                 8          NOTTINGHAM ARENA
FRIDAY                        9          GLASGOW SECC HALL 4
SUNDAY                      11         MANCHESTER ARENA
TUESDAY                    13         SHEFFIELD ARENA
WEDNESDAY              14         WEMBLEY ARENA
