UK death metallers Lock Up have announced their first-ever North American tour. The jaunt begins on February 8 in Buffalo, NY and will wrap up on February 16 in Brooklyn, NY. The band will be accompanied by Goatwhore and Strong Intention.
In a statement, drummer Nick Barker commented, “After many attempts in the past, sadly to no avail, Lock Up finally gets to make it stateside for a string of shows with our good friends from Louisiana, Goatwhore. For us in Lock Up, to play with Goatwhore in the US is like a dream tour, as they are one of our favorite bands — and being good friends with them too only makes this package even more special to us. Be prepared North America ’cause we’re coming over to blast your minds into deathgrind oblivion!”
Lock Up’s third studio album, ‘Necropolis Transparent,’ was released in July on Nuclear Blast Records.
