Richmond, VA’s hardcore/thrash hybrid Iron Reagan have announced a slew of new tour dates starting June 27th on both the East and West Coast. Tourmates include Dropdead, Whiplash, Witchhaven, GWAR, Hatebreed and Mean Jeans among others (all tour dates below).
Their debut full-length Worse Than Dead was released earlier this year on A389 and Magic Bullet Records and the 19 brutal tracks of 80s influenced hardcore thrash drew comparisons to bands such as Leeway, Cro-Mags and Nuclear Assault as well as praise everywhere from the AV Club to BrooklynVegan to Decibel.
Iron Reagan is also debuting a brand-new line-up for this tour with original members Tony Foresta and Phil “Landphil” Hall of Municipal Waste and drummer Ryan Parrish (ex-Darkest Hour) joined by Mark Bronzino (ANS, Big Eyes, Kicking Spit) on second guitar and Rob Skotis (Hellbear) on bass.
