DUST BOLT To Join “The Battle Of The Bays” Tour With Exodus and Obituary

German power four-piece DUST BOLT released their third album Mass Confusion in July 2016 via Napalm Records.  (Order Here)
After some flight delays and visa issues, DUST BOLT will finally travel to North America for the first time ever and join Obituary and Exodus on the “The Battle of the Bays” Tour.  DUST BOLT will join the tour tomorrow September 27th in Columbus, OH and will take part in the remainder of the tour, which runs through October 15th in Baton Rouge, LA.
The guys cannot wait to start the tour:
“Guess who´s back? Presumed dead almost smashed but we have been resurrected and back on track. We are stoked to finally join the “The Battle of the Bays” Tour and get our asses over to the United States to support one of the craziest and best lineups we have seen in a while! Obituary, Exodus, Power Trip and DUST BOLT will kick ass all together on the second half of the tour, starting in Columbus Ohio on September 27th. We had some really bad luck with cancelled flights and multiple visa issues – BUT all of that does not matter anymore, because we have never been so ready to get out on tour and play some fucking music! United States, Battle of the Bays – here we come! Expect more than 300 percent each night. This tour is a dream come true for us. We have nothing to lose, but tons of energy to give. Check out the tour dates, catch us live, bring a friend and prepare to get smashed.”
It’s only been six years since Southern Germans DUST BOLT won the W:O:A Metal Battle 2011 – six years the band has used to transform themselves from hot newcomers into national thrash heroes with their debut Violent Demolition! These Bay Area aficionados dropped their third full length Mass Confusion in July 2016. Relentless touring plus constant fine-tuning of the typical DUST BOLT sound have finally paid off: the old school songwriting is focused and free of ballast weight, yet despite all the rage and aggression there is still plenty of breathing space for melodic guitar work, gang shouts and ten ton grooves.

Obituary Share “Sentence Day” Live Video

Tampa Bay Florida Death Metal Godfathers Obituary have shared the official live video accompanying “Sentence Day” off the band’s self-titled full-length album. The video was filmed in stunning 4k by Magnetar Studios at several locations on the band’s headlining tour with Gruesome earlier this year. Watch Obituary perform “Sentence Day” via YouTube.

The band comments on the video and song: “We are super excited to bring you guys another music video from the new album. This video was extra fun for the band as we invited James to ride along with us for a couple shows and get onstage/offstage and crowd footage then his entire crew met up with us and filmed a show with multi-camera angles. ‘Sentence Day’ is one of our favorite songs on the album and definitely a fan favorite so we are proud to bring you guys this video. Enjoy!”

Gary Holt of Exodus: It’s a little outside the box. It’s really super crushing, but I think people will be surprised.

This weekend, Exodus will headline it’s first Bay Area club shows since late 2013 when the band takes over the Chapel in San Francisco’s Mission District for two nights. The band is promising a special event for fans with plans to film the Exodus as they perform some rarely heard songs alongside classic hits in addition to inviting some past members onstage for guest appearances. CBS SF spoke to Holt earlier this week about the two-night SF residency as well as his plans with both Exodus and Slayer.

CBS SF: When we talked a few years ago prior to Blood In Blood Outbeing recorded, you mentioned having gotten the “Pink Floyd or Rush of thrash” out of your system as far as Exhibit A and Exhibit B leaning towards more complex song structures. Do you see the new album sticking to the more straight forward type of tunes that were on Blood In Blood Out?

Gary Holt: You know, it’s hard to say. Of the stuff I’ve written so far, I think the songs are shorter, but I think they’re also at the same time more progressive than the last album. It’s a little outside the box. It’s really super crushing, but I think people will be surprised.

It’s an Exodus album, but as of now, the stuff Tom and I have been putting together is a bit different. It’s got those subtle changes that make for a departure, but it will still stay true to the core of the band’s sound.

CBS SF: Had Exodus played or toured with Maiden before?

Gary Holt: No, Maiden has been out on tour with Ghost, but I think they did this a couple of years ago as well. When they played the Southern California show they added some bands and made it kind of like a mini festival because that amphitheater down there is massive. I guess you’d call it a little one-day Maiden fest. It was a pretty epic show. It just had some epic technical failures.
