Act Of Defiance

Act Of Defiance have announced a tour starting later this month.

The band – which features former Megadeth pair Chris Broderick and Shawn Drover – play at the Manila Pulp Summer Slam in the Philippines on April 30 before a run of North American headline shows and some support slots with Hatebreed.

Broderick says: “Starting with the Pulp festival, it will be the first time Act Of Defiance will play on a different continent and I couldn’t think of a better festival to start with.

“After that, opening up for Hatebreed and DevilDriver will be a great experience for us as both of those bands put on a killer live show and will be awesome to see live. I am also excited to do some more headlining shows in the US and Canada, meeting more of our fans, and making more friends. I hope to see you all out there.”

Act Of Defiance released their debut album Birth And The Burial last year. The band also includes ex-Scar The Martyr singer Henry Derek and Shadows Fall bassist Matt Bachand.
