Rising UK hardcore/thrash outfit Cage Fight have confirmed they will be playing a UK tour as special guests to US punk legends Cro-Mags.
They will also be performing a number of other UK shows, supporting the likes of Napalm Death, Svalbard and Shai Hulud, plus festival appearances including Bloodstock Festival 2022.
The Cro-Mags tour will follow the release of Cage Fight’s debut self-titled album, due for release May 13 on the Candlelight label.
The band features TesseracT guitarist James Monteith and former Eths vocalist Rachel Aspe. They are gaining a reputation as one of the most furious hardcore records to emerge from the UK in years, the anger and frustration of Cage Fight’s self-titled debut album is the perfect catharsis for our times.
The album’s artwork – a grabbing hand with the Cage Fight logo tattooed on the palm – visually portrays the violent rage at the core of the band’s music. Legitimately tattooed by Rachel, a tattoo artist by trade, the process of creating the image is as impactful as the final artwork itself.
