Young Finnish thrashers Lost Society are very proud to announce that they will be playing as main support alongside Exodus on their upcoming 2016 UK & Ireland tour.
Front man Samy Elbanna said regarding the announcement:
“We can’t even begin to tell you all how stoked we are to announce that we’ll be hitting the road with the almighty EXODUS at the end of February! We’re so happy to finally return to the UK and hit our other favourite countries and cities. We’ll be playing some tracks off of ‘BRAINDEAD’ for the first time ever, and of course songs off of the first two records. One thing is for sure, Exodus and Lost Society will tear down every single venue, and we expect you all to go crazy and scream your lungs out!! Make sure you get your tickets right away, this is gonna be legendary!
Europe BEWARE: Lost Society and Exodus comin’ atcha!!”
Samy has also put together a video message for the announcement.

The tour which will take the bands across Europe as well as the UK & Ireland, hits our shores on 25th February at the Asylum, Birmingham – culminating on 13th March at Chinnerys in Southend.
Exodus and Lost Society are keen to disperse their thrashing annihilation across the UK, this is a tour not to be missed!

Samy Elbanna said regarding the album:
“A lot has happened since the release of our second album; we’ve played loads of sick shows and we’ve definitely matured as songwriters and as musicians. We were beyond stoked to announce our new album ‘Braindead’! I’d have to say that this album truly shows what Lost Society is all about, and it’s filled with the tightest, heaviest and most aggressive stuff we’ve EVER done. This album has the slowest songs and the fastest songs we’ve ever done and one thing is for sure: this will make you wanna go crazy! The album title itself is a portrayal of us in many ways, ‘Braindead’ has come to be another way of saying Lost Society, and it came to us as a natural decision to make it the title for what we feel is the best material we have ever made. Ladies and gentlemen, the times of a ‘Braindead’ revolution are upon us!”
The band recently released the first and second part of their studio video series.

Founded in early 2010 by thrash/speed metal enthusiast Samy Elbanna in the Finnish town of Jyväskylä, the front man gathered an ensemble of passionate allies around him to establish a band that should soon become known as the most energetic up-and-comers the scene had seen in years. With their highly acclaimed debut album ‘Fast Loud Death’ released in 2013 – when the guys were still in their teens – Lost Society rapidly rose to fame and caught the attention of veterans such as Kreator and Testament. Subsequently, 2014‘s ‘Terror Hungry’ saw the pack further enhancing their trademark blend of speedy boozing anthems and moshy mayhem in the vein of Anthrax, Pantera and Municipal Waste, resulting in numerous shows and festival appearances all over Europe.
