The 2014 comeback album, The Year The Sun Died, from the legendary Seattle band SANCTUARY took the metal world by storm. The four original band members - Warrel Dane (vocals, ex-NEVERMORE), Lenny Rutledge (guitars), Jim Sheppard (bass, ex-NEVERMORE) and Dave Budbill (drums) - proved to be still on top of the game with an album that pleased every old fan without sounding old fashioned.
Now, SANCTUARY is proud to announce the next chance to witness old and new songs live in Europe! The tour starts with a very special show in London before they join the mighty OVERKILL on a couple of mainland shows while finishing the trip with two headlining gigs in Greece.
The live line-up will be completed by the guitar talent of Nick Cordle. Lenny Rutledge comments: "Brad Hull has recently parted ways with SANCTUARY. We are excited to welcome Nick Cordle from ARCH ENEMY and ARSIS to the SANCTUARY team. Nick is an amazing musician and we believe he will bring a fresh energy to the line-up. You can see Nick Cordle with SANCTUARY this March touring Europe on the Killfest tour."
Nick Cordle adds: "It'll be a great pleasure to join SANCTUARY on tour in Europe! I've admired the band for a long time and 'The Year The Sun Died' is a breath of fresh air. It's a welcome challenge to work up these songs and I'm excited to get moving!"
