UK METAL band Tombstone Crow are bound for Shetland this autumn to play the final date of their ‘Dragged Under’ UK tour for any rock fans still hungry for more metal after last month’s Buffet festival.
Local promoters Heavy Metal Buffet (HMB) are promoting the Saturday 1 October show at the Lerwick Legion, and they are promising a “riotous gig” from a band that previously graced The Buffet: Shetland’s Rock Festival in 2013 and 2014.
They are returning to Shetland following a “triumphant two years of thrashing metal madness” in support of their brand new and “thunderously heavy” new album Dragged Under.
Local support bands on the bill are groove-death metal merchants Bullet Farm, masters of the funk drop Funkicity and up-and-coming anthem rockers Sidewinder. Also appearing are Shetland favourites, the mighty Ten Tonne Dozer who have a long-standing relationship with Tombstone Crew having toured with them.
Tombstone Crow lead singer Debi Lisle is excited to be returning: “Playing for a Shetland audience is always a highlight of the tour, it’s like playing for family,” she said. “We can’t wait to unleash Dragged Under on Shetland!”
HMB’s Dirk Robertson said: “We are very excited to see the return of our friends, who were instrumental in galvanising the first two years of the Heavy Metal Buffet as a seriously entertaining metal festival.”
Dirk’s fellow HMB organiser and sibling Marjolein Robertson added: “They are an incredibly exciting band to watch. From the minute they begin, they are having a great time on stage and it’s incredibly infectious for the whole crowd.
“I am so happy to have them back for a third time, I can’t wait to hear their new material from Dragged Under.”
- Tickets to see Tombstone Crow at the Lerwick Legion on Saturday 1 October are on sale, priced £10, from Shetland Box Office now.
