Corby metallers Raging Speedhorn have announced their first headline show of 2021 with Earthtone9 and Heriot as support. The show will take place at The Dome in London on December 10th.
The band had this to say on the dual announcement:
“We’re excited to hit the stage with our brothers in earthtone9! Given our history with the band and the amazing London crowd, we know this is going to be a banger!”
Recorded with Russ Russell (Napalm Death, At The Gates) at Parlour Studios in Kettering, “Hard To Kill” saw Raging Speedhorn once again upping their own ante in terms of song-writing finesse; playing riff-fuelled dirty heavy metal with aplomb. “The album is straight-up Raging Speedhorn – with added extras,” says founding co-frontman Frank Regan. “Right now, the band is on fire, the vibe is amazing, and we’re so happy to be back playing music. Six albums in and we’re still loving what we do.”
The album – the follow-up to 2016’s “Lost Ritual” was the first to feature new vocalist Dan Cook who replaced long-standing co-vocalist John Loughlin. John stood down after 21 years during the recording of “Hard To Kill” leaving the mantle open for Dan. RSH also welcomed new guitarist Dave Leese and former Hundred Reasons bassist Andy Gilmour who join founding members Regan, drummer Gordon Morison, and guitarist Jim Palmer.
Over the course of 20 years Raging Speedhorn have built a solid and long-standing reputation as one of the UK’s leading metal outfits. Since the release of their eponymous debut in 2000, the sextet have enjoyed a career built on stunning, raucous live shows and albums to boot. A career that has seen the sextet play worldwide shows and festivals and sharing stages with the likes of Slipknot, Clutch, Enter Shikari and many more.
“Hard To Kill” was released on vinyl, CD, download and all streaming platforms via the band’s own label imprint Red Weed Records on October 23rd 2020.
