Crossfaith confirm first UK headline tour

Crossfaith have confirmed their first-ever UK headline tour – they’ll play seven shows in November.

And frontman Kenta Koie describes their upcoming visit as “coming home,” adding: “Since our first UK tour two years ago, we’ve spent a lot of time in your country. The United Kingdom is very special to us and we’re very excited to announce our tour. We’re going to take you guys to the future and beyond!”

The band – who appeared at Reading and Leeds over the weekend – were last week forced to cancel a run of shows in North America after guitarist Takemura Kazuki was diagnosed with repetitive strain injury.

Not only is one-time online news editor Martin an established rock journalist and drummer, but he’s also penned several books on music history, including SAHB Story: The Tale of the Sensational Alex Harvey Band, a band he once managed, and the best-selling Apollo Memories about the history of the legendary and infamous Glasgow Apollo. Martin has written for Classic Rock and Prog and at one time had written more articles for Louder than anyone else (we think he's second now). He’s appeared on TV and when not delving intro all things music, can be found travelling along the UK’s vast canal network.
