Kerry King Lining Up Summer European Festival Stops


Kerry King continues to expand the touring plans for his newly emerging solo venture. That eponymous project was officially unveiled earlier this month, and finds him joined by vocalist Mark Osegueda (Death Angel), guitarist Phil Demmel (Vio-lence, ex-Machine Head), bassist Kyle Sanders (HELLYEAH, ex-bloodsimple.) and drummer Paul Bostaph (Slayer, etc.).

Outside of announcing a May 17th release for his debut album “From Hell I Rise“, and launching the first single “Idle Hands“, King also began rolling out shows for the project. While yesterday’s (February 21st) surprise Slayer reunion announcement may have sucked some of the wind from the sails behind this fledgling new venture, further dates have been announced recently for King‘s own project.

Numerous European festival stops are now in the mix with the schedule running as follows:

05/09 Daytona Beach, FL – Welcome To Rockville
