Chicago-based 1980’s underground thrash icons, WRATH have announced part 1 of their Rage Across America Tour. This highly anticipated announcement comes on the heels of their latest release, Rage which is available on Combat Records (2018).
WRATH has spent the whole of 2019 and much of late 2018 heavily promoting the album which also included a short run with label owner, David Ellefson (MEGADETH) in support of his Basstory Tour.
The band announced their tour on May 25th, 2019 via their Facebook page with a complete list of dates. Kicking things off in high gear, WRATH begins their tour with two dates on the FLOTSAM AND JETSAM End of Chaos tour (6/1/19 @ The Forge – Joliet, IL & 6/2/19 @ Club Garibaldi – Milwaukee, WI).
WRATH then heads east to do an independent run which include stops at famous east-coast clubs like Blackthorn 51 in Elmhurst (Queens), NY and Dingbatz in Clifton, NJ. WRATH wraps things up with a bang as their tour concludes with an appearance at Full Terror Assault in Cave-In-Rock, IL. WRATH has also mentioned in several social media postings that more dates will be added in the future and has teased stops in other parts of the country.
