Stoneghost (Supporting Raging Speedhorn) – UK Tour 15-23 July 2016

In July, South London riff-monsters Stoneghost will be heading out as main support on a 9 date UK tour with British metal beasts Raging Speedhorn.

Talking about the tour the band excitedly say; “We’re delighted, stoked and fuckin’ proud to be hitting the road with Raging Speedhorn. It’s gonna be all sorts of riff-fuelled mayhem, see you there!”

Met with a barrage of praise with Metal Hammer claiming they are “destined for big things”, Classic Rock pronounced them an “explosion of vitriolic blood, guts and brutal cries”, Terrorizer called them “Immense”, said they “keep the brutally groovy spirit of Pantera alive” whilst the Guardianheralded they create some of the “most infectious riffs of the 21st century.” Further praise came from Alex Baker of Kerrang Radio who said “My head nearly exploded with how good this band are” and Sophie K made it them her record of the week exclaiming “these guys are ones to watch”. Further radio play came from Daniel P Carter at BBC Radio 1, Ian Camfield at Xfm and Johnny Doom at Kerrang Radio.

‘New Age of Old Ways’ was recorded with Russ Russell who has previously worked with Napalm Death, Evile, Dimmu Borgir, Sikth and New Model Army who helped harness the raw live energy and translate it to record. The album is available now via Mascot Records (Black Label Society, Black Stone Cherry, Counting Days, Monster Truck)

Keeps the brutally groovy spirit of Pantera alive, armed as it is with volleys of anti-tank riffs and Phil Anselmo-aping death growls” Q
