Napalm Death at Knockdown Center (more by Greg Cristman)
Napalm Death

There's yet another absolutely loaded, must-catch, all-star metal tour on the horizon, giving metalheads still more reason to get excited about 2015. Napalm Death, Voivod, Exhumed, Iron Reagan, and Black Crown Initiate are joining forces for the "Through Space and Grind" tour. This is just an absurdly stacked bill, and as if you needed more reason to go, they'll also be joined by Ringworm, Dayglo Abortions, Theories, and Phobia on select dates. These bands run the gamut from absolutely legendary to young and on-the-rise, from death-grind to political thrash, and they all have a reputation as absolute crushers in the live setting.

The tour will make a stop in NYC at Gramercy Theater on February 2, where Ringworm will mercifully be on the bill. Tickets for that show will be on sale Friday (11/7) at 10 AM. All dates are listed below.

All of these bands have been varying degrees of busy lately. Napalm Death have been playing festivals and touring internationally all year. Voivod released an album last year and have been playing some festival gigs in 2014. Iron Reagan, featuring "Landphil" Hall of Cannabis Corpse and Municipal Waste, and otherwise known as the busiest man in metal, have a new album out and released a split on Tankcrimes with tourmates Exhumed earlier this year. Ringworm dropped a ripper this year too.

All dates listed, along with a stream of the Iron Reagan/Exhumed split EP, a video of Napalm Death playing live in Chile earlier this year, Voivod's video for "Target Earth" and the Ringworm LP stream, below...
