It is with great honor that Fallen Blue welcomes, orginal Anthrax vocalist, Neil turbin, and his metal warriors, the DeathRiders, to our ever-growing family of police supporters. Not only does Neil still possess one of the best metal voices in the business today, but his current band, the Deathriders, are loud, powerful, and most importantly, eager to do what they can to raise awareness for Fallen Blue and the families of police officers who are killed outside the line of duty. "A lot of people will say they support something for the publicity, but I truly admire and respect all aspects of law enforcement. My hats off to them for putting themselves in harms way each day to protect ordinary citizens like us. Its an honor to work with Fallen Blue." Again, thank you Neil & DeathRiders for your support, as we look forward to working with you in the future.
DEATHRIDERS, the power/thrash metal band led by original Screamin' Demon of Thrash and The Big 4 ANTHRAX singer Neil Turbin, will embark on a U.S. tour, dubbed "The Metal Beast Is Back", later this month. The trek will see the band headlining the iconic Whisky a Go Go on the Sunset Strip in Hollywood, California on July 21 as well as returning to the San Francisco Bay Area to headline the Oakland Metro Opera House on August 10, and will include dates in Maryland and Arizona,
with more to be announced soon.
According to a press release, "at a recent DEATHRIDERS rehearsal at Hollywood's Swing House Studios, the band sounded fast and heavy with strong old-school 'Fistful Of Metal' vocals which caught the attention of Steven Tyler (AEROSMITH, 'American Idol'). In an even further testament to the 'molten-metal' performance given by the band even at a simple rehearsal, Tyler who had been listening outside the studio, came into the rehearsal room unannounced and stayed to watch the band perform their track 'Give 'Em Hell' and was [seen] headbanging along the whole time."
DEATHRIDERS is currently recording its full-length debut, "The Metal Beast Is Alive", at Blue Pacific Studios in Los Angeles.
