The English rock icons will issue Pylon later this year via Spinefarm Records – their first new material since 2012’s MMXII. And a nine-date tour kicks off in Cardiff on October 25.

Singer Jaz Coleman, guitarist Kevin ‘Geordie’ Walker, bassist Martin ‘Youth’ Glover and drummer Paul Ferguson played at this week’s Metal Hammer Golden Gods in London, which were hosted by Anthrax frontman Scott Ian.
