Sacred Reich announce new album, UK dates

US thrash metal legends, SACRED REICH are currently in the studio recording their first studio album in 23 years, titled ‘Awakening’, which is anticipated for release later this Summer.   To follow the release, the band have announced a full European tour, kicking off in November and including 6 UK & Irish shows.

 

SACRED REICH recently welcomed the return of their former drummer, Dave McClain, following his departure from Machine Head after 23 years with the Bay Area metal outfit.

 

Regarding the upcoming album, SACRED REICH‘s frontman, Phil Rind comments; “Recording is in full swing with producer Arthur Rizk at The Platinum Underground in Arizona.  We are so excited to be back in the studio after 23 years and Dave is currently killing it on the drums.  It sounds sick!  Our new record, ‘Awakening’ is due this summer.  Stay tuned!  Tour dates across the planet coming your way!“
