Crippled Black Phoenix have announced a European summer tour.

They’ll play eight festival and headline dates across mainland Europe in June, July and August in support of their latest album Bronze, which was released in November last year via Season Of Mist.

Crippled Black Phoenix leader Justin Greaves says: “Hello rockers! We are stoked to bring a fine selection of our songs to you this summer. Make sure to catch our shows this time round – we are not the most touring band. See you in the sun!”

The band’s most recent video was for the track Scared And Alone – an animated promo created by renowned Romanian artist Costin Chioreanu.

The clip is said to revolve “around the illness of depression, which is represented in song and visuals by the metaphorical ‘black dog’ – a slang term expressing this severe and dangerous medical condition.”

Watch the video below.
