DIAMOND PLATE Kicks Off Tour TONIGHT with ANTHRAX

Chicago thrashers Diamond Plate have arrived in the UK for their first ever shows outside of North America.

The band kick off their UK trek with two shows supporting thrash legends Anthrax, before heading off to Hammerfest in Wales on Friday, joining a line-up including Skindred, Amon Amarth, Evile, Chimaira, Savage Messiah, Cerebral Bore and more.  Diamond Plate will also be taking part in a signing session at the festival at 3pm on Friday, as well as a meet and greet at the Earache stall on Saturday at 4pm.

After Hammerfest, Diamond Plate will be teaming up with Shred-Heavy Metallers Savage Messiah for two more unmissable shows in York and London, which are open to ages 14+, with tickets costing just £6 and £7 respectively.

Diamond Plate lead guitarist Konrad Kupiec comments:

“The three biggest shows of our band’s history are here and we’re honored to have them be in the UK with our idols Anthrax.  These shows will mark the first time that we travel overseas, and all of us can’t wait to finally show UK fans the true experience of our live show.  Fans will get a chance to see us in action in a few different ways, from directly supporting Anthrax, to a main stage performance at a sold out Hammerfest, followed by a small run with label mates Savage Messiah where everyone can see us up close at intimate venues.  We’re ready for English beer, spliffs, and fish ‘n’ chips, and we hope the UK fans are ready to bang their heads!”
