The latest piece of metal news that has come to us and it is a big one: Having already successfully filled the role once, Swedish shock rock band Deathstars have been announced as the support for Rammstein's extensive 2012 European tour.
On the back of a hugely successful 2011 for the band including a performance at the High Voltage Festival at London's Victoria Park, Graveyard are bringing their brand of psychadelic based blues rock back to the UK for a short tour in March 2012.
Hot off the presses from Basick Records, one of the UK's fastest growing alternative and metal labels is the news that they have been granted a full label showcase event as part of the HMV Next Big Thing set of shows taking place across the UK during the first part of 2012.
Rising British metal band Rise to Remain have announced that they have parted ways with their bassist Joe Copcutt and drummer Pat Lundy. As a result the band have had to drop off their support slot on Machine Head's US tour.
