Venom, Inc. has announced a North American tour for this spring. Kicking off April 24 in Colorado Springs, CO, the 11-date trek will cross the mid-west and Canada before wrapping things up May 4 in Brooklyn, NY.
Exmortus and Homewrecker will be joining the band on tour for most of these shows as support. The only exception is April 27, when Venom, Inc. will be opening for the Original Misfits’ one-off reunion show in Chicago, IL.
Venom, Inc. is an offshoot of pioneering British metal band Venom featuring the band’s 1988-1992 line-up of Jeffrey “Mantas” Dunn on guitar, Anthony “Abaddon” Bray on drums and Tony “The Demolition Man” Dolan on vocals and bass. The band released their first album under the new moniker, Avé, in 2017 via Nuclear Blast. Abaddon seemingly moved on from the band last year, citing parental duties for his newborn daughter, and never returned. Dolan told ‘Rock Talk with Mitch Lafon’ in October,
“That month that we were waiting for Abaddon to come back, things went all a bit strange, let’s say, and all a bit wonky. And then I still assumed he would be coming back after March, [but] he didn’t. We then had to fulfull some other shows, he still wasn’t back, and it seems discontentment has set in and he wants to do his own thing now.”
Sound engineer and former The Absence drummer Jeramie Kling has been playing with the band ever since.
