DeathRiders Featuring Original Anthrax Vocalist Neil Turbin Unleash “The Metal Beast is Back” Tour


Power thrash metallers DeathRiders, fronted by original Big 4 “Screamin’ Demon” of thrash, Neil Turbin, have just confirmed a US Tour aptly titled ‘The Metal Beast is Back’. The tour starts in July and will see the band headlining the world famous iconic Whisky a Go-Go on the Sunset Strip, Los Angeles on July 21 as well as returning to the Bay Area to headline the Oakland Metro Opera House on August 10, along with dates on the East Coast in Maryland, and the South West in Arizona with more to be announced soon.

According to the studio staff at a recent DeathRiders rehearsal at Hollywood’s Swing House Studios, “the band sounded fast and heavy with strong old school “Fistful Of Metal” vocals which caught the attention of Steven Tyler (Aerosmith, American Idol).” In an even further testament to the ‘molten metal’ performance given by the band even at a simple rehearsal, Tyler who had been listening outside the studio, came into the rehearsal room unannounced and stayed to watch the band perform their track “Give Em Hell” and was witnessed head banging along the whole time.

The band is currently working on their forthcoming debut full length studio album titled “The Metal Beast Is Alive” which is being recorded at Blue Pacific Studios in Los Angeles, CA.
