Another quick roundup of up-and-coming dates. Grab your hairspray, spiked leather jacket and old-shirts, and get these into your diaries…
Steel Panther / Inglorious
Tickets have already been flying off the… erm… whatever you keep tickets on. It’s not shelves. So… printers? Anyway, Glasgow’s already sold out on this tour, but Inglorious – and we – wanted to remind you that you should always aim to get to a show early to check out the support.
Opening for the dodgy old men of Steel Panther (though we don’t know how old they actually are) in January are slightly younger upstarts Inglorious. Inglorious opened across Europe for the misogynistic grandads (of countless illegitimate offspring, allegedly) in 2016 so they know the score. And to not accept hand-me-downs in the dressing room after the show… if you know what I mean.

Eternal Fear / Fury
Eternal Fear and Fury will be hitting the road together in May 2018. Both bands have a wealth of touring experience and have built up reputations for themselves as being two of the must-see artists within the heavy metal community.
Fury from the UK deliver an expansive, panoramic and beautiful arrangement of metal that in their words is “easily capable of transporting you to alternate and fantastical universes”. In 2016, Fury have been seen performing on the main stage at Hammerfest plus slots at HRH Metal, Bloodstock and more.
Eternal Fear from Sweden are returning to our shores for this seventh UK tour, promoting their 2017 album Killing Time. The band will be delivering outstanding performances and with a successful tour in February this year, a slot confirmed on HRH Vikings in December 2018 they are more determined than ever to conquer their second home.

36 Crazyfists / All Hail The Yeti
All Hail The Yeti are set for a return to UK shores in early 2018, as special guests to their friends, 36 Crazyfists, while the band prepare for the release of their new studio album set for a late Spring/early Summer release.
Frontman Connor Garritty tells us:
We are beyond excited to come back to the UK and Europe again. It’s always such a pleasure to play for fans who love every type of heavy music. The culture, the history and the great venues make it such an honour to be able to do this. Making things even better is that we get to share the stage with our brothers in 36 Crazyfists again. 2018 is already starting off with a bang! We hope to see some familiar faces and look forward to meeting new friends! HAIL!
