Long Island Tech-Metallers CAR BOMB To Make UK Tour Debut With GOJIRA In March 2017


Expect transatlantic tremors in March, as tech metal heavyweights ​CAR BOMB will head to the UK to make their tour debut as support to the mighty ​Gojira.

​ .As long term friends, ​CARBOMB were handpicked by the French metal titans to join them on their Magma UK and European tour - and with cardiac arrest-inducing pulse, smoldering technicality and musicianship, alongside merciless live presence at their core, it's easy to see why. 

 "We’re honored and grateful that Gojira are letting us tag along with them across the pond for their UK tour for 'Magma'. We’ve only played one show in the UK (Meshuggah at The Roundhouse in December 2014) so we are excited that we get to spend a whole week there this time around. Most of the set will be songs from our latest album “Meta", so it should be pretty interesting to see if we can pull those off!" - Greg Kubacki (Guitarist) 

CAR BOMB​ will land at: 
 Mar 11 - Academy Birmingham
Mar 12 - Forum London
 Mar 14 - Academy Manchester
 Mar 15 - Academy Newcastle
 Mar 16 - O2 Academy Leeds
 Mar 17  ABC Glasgow
Mar 18 - Academy Bristol 

CARBOMB released their third album​ META ​last year, which coincidentally was produced by Gojira front-man ​Joe Duplantier,​ to critical acclaim. Showcasing the band's virtuoso musicianship and earth shattering brutality, the record follows 2007's debut Centralia and 2012's ​'w^w^^w^w'.

 Perking up the ears of US metal pressin 2010, ​CARBOMB vocalist​ Michael Dafferner created documentary ​Why You Do This​. The hour long film showcases the false-realities and struggles that ​CAR BOMB​and other tech metal bands experienced on tours over the space of three years, and the impact of creating music that did not have the mass appeal of more mainstream genres. Faced with the challenge of balancing their nine-to-five jobs at home with the desire to be a full time musician,​ Why You Do This addresses the financial and personal strains that come with a gruelling tour schedule, shedding light on passion and unity as the driving force for musicians. The documentary features some of the biggest names in modern metal including​ Lamb Of God and ​Gojira. 

 Bearing an impressive touring history, ​CAR BOMB have supported some of the greatest and heaviest in modern metal, including ​Meshuggah​, ​The Dillinger Escape Plan, ​Soulfly, ​Decapitated and ​Dying Fetus to name a few. With the UK in their sights, it's only a matter of time until ​CAR BOMB ​becomes a household name for tech metal.
