KINGS OF THRASH recently announced their long-awaited “Anarchy in the UK” tour with special guests ANDRY and HELLGRIMM. The tour is set to kick off October 24, 2024 and run through November 02, 2024.

The tour promises an electrifying experience for fans as KINGS OF THRASH makes its debut in the United Kingdom, paying homage to the birthplace of heavy metal. This tour holds special significance as it coincides with the 30th anniversary of the groundbreaking album Youthanasia, platinum (USA) and gold (UK) a milestone in Ellefson‘s illustrious career.

“We are super thrilled to finally bring KINGS OF THRASH to the UK, in many ways the origins of heavy metal,” said David Ellefson. “Even more so, celebrating some highlights of the 30th anniversary of the Youthanasia album. The UK has been such a fantastic supporter for more than 40 years of our music, so it’ll be great to bring to our fans rare tracks and highlights of some of the most monumental albums in thrash metal history.”

Says Jeff Young, “I can’t wait to get back to the UK! The last time I played there was with MEGADETH in 1988 at Castle Donington for the ‘Monsters of Rock’ festival, so this return trip is long overdue!”

In addition to commemorating the Youthanasia anniversary, the tour will also showcase select cuts from Killing Is My Business…And Business Is GoodSo Far…So Good… So What!, and Peace Sells…But Who’s Buying? promising an unforgettable experience for both longtime fans and newcomers alike.
