Portland, Oregon punk metal miscreants TOXIC HOLOCAUST have announced a two week headlining run of European dates including select shows with CONVERGE and numerous festival appearances.  The tour begins on August 4th in Motala, Sweden at the Motala Hardcore Fest and wraps up on August 17th at Dinkelsbuhl, Germanys Summer Breeze Festival.  A complete listing of dates is included below.  TOXIC HOLOCAUST frontman Joel Grind commented on the upcoming tour:

“We are very excited about coming back to Europe so soon, we always have a great time there and the shows we are playing this time around are mind blowing! We are playing so many cool cities and with some great bands. Hope to see you all there losing your minds!”

TOXIC HOLOCAUST will be touring in support of the infinitely punishing Conjure And Command full-length released via Relapse Records last year. The record, which Revolver championed for its “nuclear reactive riffage and Repo Man punk attitude,” continues to earn critical accolades. Cvlt Nation noted: “TOXIC HOLOCAUST have given fans a record that they will be able to devour now and for fucking years to come,” and The Onion’s A.V. Club opined: “sweetly redolent of thrash, d-beat, and raw sewage, the album simmers with tar-thick riffage, staggering breakdowns, and a corroded dose of self-loathing,.” The Washingcity Paper agreed saying: “…it’s refreshing to hear a thrash band that is so single-minded about its whirlwind riffs and pastor-baiting lyrics,” while Hails & Horns praised: “If The Exploited and Nuclear Assault had a kid, TOXIC HOLOCAUST would take it’s lunch money and toss it in the dumpster.”

Conjure And Command is out now internationally and available across several formats including a limited edition, deluxe CD and DVD set that includes a full TOXIC HOLOCAUST live show. The album is available for purchase through Relapse HERE and iTunes HERE. In addition, check out the iTunes bonus track from the record — a cover of Repulsion’s “Helga Lost Her Head” –- at the band’s OFFICIAL FACEBOOK PAGE.
