Venom Inc., an offshoot of legendary metal band Venom with original guitarist Mantas and former vocalist and bassist The Demolition Man, have announced a 2019 North American tour with Exmortus and Homewrecker. They hit the road late in April for shows in Kansas City, Minneapolis, Columbus, Toronto, Ottawa and more, wrapping up with a Brooklyn show at The Kingsland on May 4, 2019. Tickets for that show are on sale now.
Venom Inc.'s tour also includes a Chicago-area date with The Original Misfits, where they'll be joined by Fear and Power Trip. That happens on April 27 at Allstate Arena, and tickets are on sale now. See all of Venom Inc.'s upcoming dates below.
The current lineup of Venom Inc. is rounded out by Kling, aka Jeramie Kling of The Absence, on drums. He was originally brought on to fill in temporariliy for Abaddon on a European tour so Abaddon could take care of his newborn daughter. However, as Demolition Man said on Rock Talk With Mitch Lafon, "that month that we were waiting for Abaddon to come back, things went all a bit strange, let's say, and all a bit wonky. And then I still assumed he would be coming back after March, [but] he didn't. We then had to fulfill some other shows, he still wasn't back, and it seems discontentment has set in and he wants to do his own thing now. So, I don't know."
