Phil Campbell And The Bastard Sons have announced a UK and German tour.

The run of dates will see the former Motorhead guitarist and his band play a total of 24 dates, kicking off with a set at Hard Rock Hell on November 8, with the tour concluding with a set at Weinheim’s Cafe Central on December 8.

The shows have been lined up in support of their debut album The Age Of Absurdity, which launched in January via Nuclear Blast.

Phil Campbell And The Bastard Sons say: “We are thrilled to announce The Age Of Absurdity UK and Germany headline tour for November and December. 

“It’ll be great to play full headline shows again in the UK and return to Germany to play some cities we missed out earlier this year, showcasing tracks from our new album as well as playing some Motorhead classics!”

In the UK, the band will be supported by Leader Of Down, of which late Motorhead guitarist Würzel was a member before he died in 2011.

Tickets will go on sale from 10am GMT on Wednesday (April 25).
