Black Tusk line up European tour

Black Tusk have announced a European tour leading up to their appearance at Hevy Fest.

The US rockers kick off the jaunt in Germany on July 31 and wrap up at the Hythe, Kent, festival on August 15.

The band say: “Looking forward to Ieperfest, Roadkill Festival, HevyFest and more, as well as shows with Crowbar, The Dillinger Escape Plan Soulfly and others.”

Black Tusk’s bassist Jonathan Athon died from injuries sustained in a motorcycle crash last year, and the band honoured their friend as they toured with Black Label Society earlier this year.
