Toxic Holocaust Set To Kick Off European Tour; Announce Puerto Rican Show

Portland, OR punk thrashers Toxic Holocaust will kick off a two-week tour of Europe this Saturday at Motala Hardcore Fest in Sweden and wraps up on August 17 at Dinkelsbuhl, Germany’s Summer Breeze Festival.  The run will include headlining dates, select shows with Converge and numerous festival appearances. Additionally the band will be playing the Metal Demolition Fest in Santurce, Puerto Rico on September 1st alongside Suicide Silence, Cattle Decapitation, Oceano, Putrid Pile and many others.

The Portland, Oregon derelictscontinue to tour in support of the infinitely punishing Conjure And Command full-length released via Relapse Records last year. The record, which Revolver championed for its “nuclear reactive riffage and Repo Man punk attitude,” continues to earn critical accolades. Cvlt Nation noted: “Toxic Holocaust have given fans a record that they will be able to devour now and for fucking years to come,” and The Onion’s A.V. Club opined: “sweetly redolent of thrash, d-beat, and raw sewage, the album simmers with tar-thick riffage, staggering breakdowns, and a corroded dose of self-loathing,.” The Washington City Paper agreed saying: “…it’s refreshing to hear a thrash band that is so single-minded about its whirlwind riffs and pastor-baiting lyrics,” while Hails & Horns praised: “If The Exploited and Nuclear Assault had a kid, Toxic Holocaust would take it’s lunch money and toss it in the dumpster.”
