Voodoo Six to support Iron Maiden on European tour
3 June 2013
British rockers Voodoo Six, featuring Premier 'young gun' Joe Lazarus, are excited to announce they will release new album ‘Songs To Invade Countries To’ worldwide on May 27 via Universal Music, before embarking on the biggest tour of their career so far as main support to metal legends IRON MAIDEN on their European dates.
‘Songs To Invade Countries To’ will consist of 11 tracks mixed by Tony Newton & Pedro Ferreira (The Darkness, Enter Shikari, Therapy?) and mastered by Ade Emsley (Iron Maiden, Steve Harris).
Voodoo Six will join Iron Maiden in Portugal for their European summer tour dates, heading through Spain, Italy, France, Germany, Switzerland, Holland, Poland and Sweden. The band has already been announced for major summer festivals such as Sonisphere Spain (Barcelona and Madrid), Sonisphere Italy and Graspop Metal Meeting (Belgium)- with many more yet to come.
Iron Maiden founder and bassist Steve Harris comments: “I’ve been keeping an eye on Voodoo Six for a while now and they’ve produced a cracking new album with real promise. It’s great to support true British up and coming talent such as theirs and it’ll be a pleasure to have them out with us on tour.”
Voodoo Six vocalist Luke Purdie adds: “This is a huge deal for us and an amazing opportunity to support arguably the most iconic band in metal history. We came up with the album title ‘Songs To Invade Countries To’ ages ago since we’ve been wanting to get our music across to European shores for a long time – but it’s been made a reality now that we’ve been chosen to support Iron Maiden on these dates. It’s going to be a very exciting year!”
