||German thrash metal legends Destruction have announced on their official website that the band will embark on their North American 30th Year Anniversary Tour this May with Warbringer, Vital Remains (who will be alternating direct support duties on a nightly basis) and Pathology as support acts.
Bassist "Schmier" Schirmer commented: "A killer package for old-school thrash & death metal freaks! This may be the best set list we've ever had - the essence of thrash metal history united with our new anthems. We'll have more classics than ever in the set, more from the first records for sure. Can't wait to hit the road again! Some North American cities have a great audience for this old school sound again, and it wasn't always like that. The main intention for this second North American tour within a year is that we could not play all markets that we wanted to book last time. Now, we'll play some new places and return to those cities that gave us a great welcome last year like New York City, Los Angeles, Chicago and Montreal. Warbringer are a perfect match to a Destruction bill. They are one of the best new thrash bands and keep our '80s spirit alive. It will be great to have them with us! We've played with Vital Remains before; awesome guys and a brutal band. They bring a good variety into the billing. Thrash/death metal is always the best mix, that's why Pathology complete the show!"
