The Safety Fire join Protest The Hero on tour

The Safety Fire have been named as main support to Protest The Hero on tour during November and December.

The seven UK shows, sandwiched between runs of European appearances, were originally to feature The Faceless until they were forced to pull out.

The Safety Fire released acclaimed second album Mouth Of Swords via InsideOut last year. Guitarist Dez Nagle said at the time: “The songwriting is more focused. When we were writing it felt like there was more room for the melodic parts – with these songs it felt like it was more suitable to have a melodic vocal part.”

The Contortionist and Destrage are also on the bill, with tickets on sale for all shows now:

Nov 25: Southampton Mo Club

Nov 26: Manchester Academy 2

Nov 28: Dublin Voodoo Lounge

Nov 29: Belfast Limelight 2

Nov 30: Wolverhampton Slade Rooms

Dec 01: Edinburgh Studio 24

Dec 02: London Koko

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.
