Gatecreeper lays out lengthy UK and European touring plans

Posted by Ramon Gonzales in News on March 22, 2022

The band will headline their own summer run before heading out with Lamb of God, Kreator and Thy Art Is Murder this winter.

Desert death dealers Gatecreeper continue to earn their rep as certified road dogs with the kind of 2022 touring schedule that few bands could keep pace with.

Fresh of their dominant showing on the Decibel Magazine Tour supporting Obituary and Municipal Waste, the band is now detailing their summer plans with a confirmed slew of headlining dates that cross Europe and the UK.

The 30-date jaunt will see Gatecreeper touch down in various cities throughout Europe and the UK with both headlining club shows and festival appearances at destinations like Hellfest in Clisson, France, Full Force Festival at Ferropolis, Germany, Obscene Extreme Festival in Trutnov, Czech Republic. The confirmed appearances mark the band’s first European dates in five years.

Gatecreeper will be touring in support of their late 2020 EP release, An Unexpected Reality. The dual-sided effort included a skilled amalgam of grind, punk and hardcore with tracks like “Starved,” “Rusted Gold” and “Amputation”. Side A of the release clocks in at all of seven minutes running time total, showcasing some of the fastest entries the band has ever recorded. Contrasted on the EP’s B-side with the spiraling freefall of their 11-minute opus in “Emptiness” – the track is as dismal as it is dynamic with a lumbering pace that hits like a wrecking ball.

Gatecreeper’s European and UK run will serve as the precursor to their winter jaunt supporting Lamb of God, Kreator and Thy Art Is Murder for the highly-anticipated winter tour. All dates can be found below.

Tickets for Gatecreeper’s summer tour of Europe and the UK go on sale March 25th 9am GMT.
