UK metallers NEGACY are preparing to head out on their first European tour next month. Along with THE HERETIC ORDER, the band kick off the tour with the first show in France on 15th February. All dates for the “Escape To Evil” tour, in support of NEGACY‘s latest album “Escape From Paradise”, can be seen on the poster below:
NEGACY guitarist Andy Mornar expressed his thoughts about the forthcoming tour: “Well it’s our first time in Europe so we feel excited, it’s something different this time.”
The band formed in 2005, being known as RED WARLOCK until 2012. Due to progressing in different musical directions, the band felt it was time for a change of name more fitting to the band’s dark nature, creating NEGACY: a fusion of ‘negate’ and ‘legacy’. NEGACY have toured in the USA, China and Mexico and signed with Massacre Records in 2018, releasing their latest album “Escape From Paradise” in September.
Ahead of the European tour, NEGACY have one headline UK show at The Unicorn, Camden on 12th January, also featuring SOVEREIGN, IGNOCIDE, ZEIT and SUPERLYNX.

German legendary metallers STORMWITCH have signed with Massacre Records and are going to release their new album “Season Of The Witch” in early 2015!
The band was formed in the early 80’s and released its debut album “Walpurgis Night” in 1984. With the release of their 4th album “Beauty And The Beast” in 1987, which featured the band’s first ballad, the fans soon referred to them as the masters of black romantic.
The band’s 7th album “Shogun” should be the last for the next few years since STORMWITCH decided to disband in 1996. In 2004, the band briefly returned and released the album “Witchcraft” but split up again shortly after. In 2010, STORMWITCH were finally back again with a new line-up.
Meanwhile, the band’s line-up consists of Vocalist Andy Mück, guitarists Ralf Stoney and Volker Schmietow, bassist Jürgen Wannenwetsch and drummer Micha Kasper, who recently replaced Peter Langer who left the band due to private reasons.
STORMWITCH were always known for their memorable live shows and played numerous club shows as well as festival gigs worldwide and toured with bands such as Killer or Krokus.
STORMWITCH wrote history, but are still bursting with new ideas.
