If it wasn’t enough to hear that Akercocke have reformed and are scheduled to play Bloodstock, they’ve also announced a run of UK shows!
Frontman Jason says of the forthcoming tour: “Circus Akercocke returns to the road at last. After our five year break from the live circuit, the band is charged, primed and ready to unleash our signature metal assault. Expect a barrage of rampant beats, face-melting guitar work, fan favorites’ from the past and killer new tunes from the present. See you down the front!”

In case you haven’t caught on yet, after a five year break from during which individual members pursued other projects, three founder members – Jason Mendonca, Paul Scanlan and David Gray – have returned to their original purpose; to create new, exciting and innovative music. Complemented by the addition of bass player Nathanael Underwood, Akercocke are presently producing their sixth studio album, which is tabled for an Autumn release.
If you’ve not seen it yet, the band posted a new track after premiering on Daniel P Carter’s BBC Radio One Rock Show. Listen to ‘Inner Sanctum’ here:
