Over a year since their last headline UK tour, THE DEFILED planned to grace our shores once more this January with a run of headline shows in January and February 2016 following a short run of dates as main support to In This Moment. Unfortunately due to circumstances beyond their control, the In This Moment tour was postponed and so The Defiled‘s headline dates also became delayed.
Both the headline shows and the support shows with In This Moment have now been announced to take place in May. Full dates are below.
The AvD comments, “After our ‘Running in Circles’ tour getting postponed earlier this year we are proud to announce that we are hitting the road with our brothers Forever Never. These are off dates that coincide with our In This Moment UK tour so get ready for some intimate drunken shenanigans. Can’t wait to see all your pretty faces, let’s party!”
2016 will also be a record breaking year for the band when the four piece are officially added to the Guinness Book Of World Records. Braving arctic conditions, THE DEFILED became the first band to play a gig on an iceberg last year as part of Jagermeister’s Ice Cold Gig series. The stunt will be immortalised forever in the 2016 Guinness Book Of World Records.
