Hang The Bastard to hit the road with COC

Hang The Bastard will support Corrosion Of Conformity on their upcoming UK tour, the London-based band have confirmed.

They’ve also announced a run of headline shows to support latest album Sex In The Seventh Circle.

They were forced to step back from planned dates with Entombed AD in November after frontman Tomas Hubbard spent three days in hospital suffering from a back problem. But they report they’re back on track after a difficult 2014.

They say in a statement: “We are more than excited to be playing shows and to be back on the road in the UK after a tough couple of months.

“Tom is feeling a lot better after his back problems and we are ready to play some riffs! Coupled with that, we are honoured beyond belief to be a part of this historic COC tour.

“We really can’t wait to visit some of the places we haven’t been to in a long time. It’s gonna be heavy and it’s gonna be loud? Bang your heads, we are coming for you!”

In addition, Hang The Bastard will headline London’s Electrowerkz on March 26. They’ll be joined on the bill by Profane And The Sacred and Death & The Miser. Tickets for the gig can be purchased through WeGotTickets.com (opens in new tab) and SeeTickets (opens in new tab). Everyone attending the event will also receive a free goodie bag.
