Nuclear Blast announces that International grindcore “Supergroup” LOCK UP featuring Tomas Lindberg (AT THE GATES,DISFEAR), Anton Reisenegger (PENTAGRAM CHILE,CRIMINAL), Shane Embury (NAPALM, DEATH, BRUJERIA, VENOMOUS CONCEPT) and Nick Barker (ex-CRADLE OF FILTH, ex-DIMMU BORGIR) will undergo a brief European club tour in Febuary 2013 in support of their lastest album “Necropolis Transparent” on Nuclear Blast records.
The tour, tentatively named “Infiltrate And Destroy Europe 2013” will see LOCK UP, who is primarily an open air festival band and an act not really known for participating in the usual touring cycles due to the individual band members main commitments and busy full-time schedules, will play a 10 date up-close-and-personal club tour which takes the band through such territories as U.K., France, Germany, Switzerland, Czech Republik, Austria and Belgium.
Drummer Nick Barker commented:
“We’re really excited and looking forward to blasting our way across Europe in Febuary 2013.Lock Up on the whole,don’t really get to do club tours very often so this is a great opportunity for us do what we do,get up close and in your face with the fans,in a more intimate setting as opposed to playing the bigger open air festival stages we’re accustomed to.Don’t get me wrong we love playing the big festivals,but with the brutal and savage nature of our music,its very well suited in a club enviroment and we feel both the band and fans vibe on that a lot more”.
