DESTRUCTION release official video for 'Under Attack'


Iconic thrash metallers DESTRUCTION are set to release forthcoming album Under Attack on May 13th via Nuclear Blast Records. Today, the band proudly present the official video for the album's title track. 

The partially animated clip was produced by Buntmetall (MOTÖRHEAD, SAXON, ANNIHILATOR, PANZER, CRIPPER). 

Mastermind Schmier states:
"We keep on doing our thing. The track 'Under Attack' stands for classic DESTRUCTION trademarks and the video will sure provoke the outdated & the backseat drivers. But global unity can not be reached with conservative & naive religious beliefs of any kind! Dear cosmopolitans, please keep your urge for freedom alive - otherwise soon there will be NO more rock 'n' roll!"

DESTRUCTION will join forces with US-based thrash metal monsters FLOTSAM & JETSAM, Swedish metal maniacs ENFORCER and Brazil's NERVOSA for a full European headlining tour this Autumn. 
This includes 4 dates in the UK and Ireland:
04.10.16 Glasgow - Audio
05.10.16 Dublin - Voodoo Lounge
06.10.16 Manchester - Club Academy
07.10.16 London - Underworld

The band kicked off their recording sessions for the new album after the summer festivals last year and recorded segments in various studios between September 2015 and January 2016. The poignant cover artwork was created by acclaimed artist Gyula from Hungary, who has also created artwork for ANNIHLATOR, GRAVE DIGGER, STRATOVARIUS, TANKARD and many more.

Mastermind Schmier states:
"The lyric video of 'Second To None' explains itself, the problem with all the hate in the net is getting more and more present and meanwhile it also has certainly effected our music scene,
