Following the release of their highly praised seventh album, Sea Savage, GAMA BOMB have today announced a 17 day run of European tour dates supporting Exhorder alongside Evil Invaders and Chronosphere. The Storms Hide The Ground European Tour will kick off on September 17 and run until October 3, serving as the first set of live dates since Sea Savage‘s December 2020 release. Accompanying the tour announcement, the band have also today released a new music video for Lords Of The Hellfire Club.
Of the tour announcement, GAMA BOMB vocalist Philly Byrne comments: “The past year really made us miss the road, so it’s exciting to announce a proper European tour and get back into the trenches! This tour will be taking us to some new places and some familiar ones, with bands who we really respect. Our fans can expect a new, bigger GB stage show – and Snowy will be joining us, too!”
On Lords Of The Hellfire Club, Philly adds: “Lords of the Hellfire Club is one of our favourite songs from Sea Savage – it’s punky and to-the-point, and it’s about a real, historical group of alcoholic Irish satan-worshippers. They’re basically the original Gama Bomb, so we had to pay tribute.”
GAMA BOMB‘s new album, Sea Savage, presents itself as a 19th century play, with Act One and Act Two playing out on side A and side B of the record respectively, weaving together fantastical tales of maritime horror. Inspired by the attitude and speed of classic Judas Priest, Iron Maiden and Accept rather than simply worshipping at the altar of old-school thrash, Sea Savage sees the Irishmen set sail further into classic metal and hard rock’s waters.
Sea Savage is out now via Prosthetic Records.
