Forbidden announces 2nd North American headlining tour

Thrash metallers Forbidden will embark on the second leg of the North American tour. Support on the trek will come from Revocation, White Wizzard and Havok.
Commented guitarist Craig Locicero : “Forbidden is proud to announce our first proper headlining tour in 16 years throughout the North America this Summer! Finally! We will be bringing out Revocation, White Wizzard and Havok along for the fun. These bands are all hungry, cool and young guns and they will add to the excitement!

Something we witnessed last Winter was the economy crushing many tours. A lot of kids just can't afford the ticket prices anymore. When we made the jump to the Pantheon Agency a few months ago, we made it clear that we wanted a reduced ticket price and all ages venues. That way all the fans of FORBIDDEN can afford to go and bring their friends of all ages along for a real Thrash experience! Well that is just what we've done. Ticket prices will be between $10-$15 ever where we play. Step one is complete!

Step two is the actual gigs themselves. We will be starting at the Whiskey in Hollywood on June 9th and then we head North into Canada for an extensive run into the East, South, Mid-West to eventually end the tour in San Diego on July 2nd. These will be raw, intimate and bare boned Thrash Metal shows. Exactly how we started it. How it was meant to be!

So tell your friends, grab your kids...whatever it takes. You are ALL invited to join us on this Omega Wave!”

Forbidden signs with Nuclear Blast Records

published on March 6, 2010 by Zandra
The thrash metal band Forbidden has inked a deal with Nuclear Blast Records :

"We are totally stoked to announce that Forbidden has inked a deal with Nuclear Blast! It is no secret that the staff of Nuclear Blast has a soft spot for thrash metal! We all grew up here with classics such as Forbidden Evil and Twisted into Form! I am sure you can imagine that we were totally thrilled when we heard the news that Forbidden were coming back and after seeing them live several times since then and seeing them doing a smoking rendition of ‘Twisted into Form’ it was totally clear to us! Forbidden needs a new home and that home is called Nuclear Blast! This feeling became even bigger after Craig had sent us the 2 new songs last year! Needless to say that a dream is coming true! The future belongs to Forbidden and together with Nuclear Blast, we will bring the band back on the metal map! What the future will bring? I cannot tell you ‘cause it is... Forbidden!"

Commented Forbidden : "We are very proud to announce that Forbidden has signed to Nuclear Blast Records! Ultimately, we all knew that there is NO better label in the world to handle Metal and bring it to the masses with authority. For the last year, we have been intensely working on our craft while re-examining our past with a perspective we'd never had before. Our vision is clear and we know exactly who and what we are today. Forbidden is in an amazing creative space and we can't wait for everyone to hear it! We began recording on March 1st.

We must thank Jaap Wagemaker and everyone else at Nuclear Blast for making their enthusiasm known to us since we've committed to writing this record. Also, there are so many other amazing friends that helped us along the way and we appreciate everything you've done for us to get Forbidden back into a position of strength. If you feel in your bones that you are one of them, then you definitely are! Thank you all so much."

Two new Forbidden demo track from their forthcoming album are available for streaming on myspace .

* Russ Anderson - Vocals
