Submitting one of thrash metal's unexpected haymakers in last year's Jailbreak LP, Brazilian thrash outfit Nervosa continue to ride high on the strength of the Napalm Records release. The album, which featured guest assists from the likes of Lena Scissorhands and thrash metal pillar Gary Holt, proved to be one of the strongest submissions of the year and marked the arrival of Nervosa - from regional hero to international sensation. 



A testament to their ever-increasing reach, Nervosa have confirmed an important milestone in their still ascending career with the news of their first-ever headlining North American tour. Dubbed the Great American Jailbreak Tour, the lengthy 38-date strecth will kick off August 29th in Milwaukee, WI with an appearance at th Blades of Steel Festival. The tour will close out with a finale in Chicago, IL at Reggies.
