Ahead of the release of their latest new album (time scale yet to be confirmed but definitely 2014), the masters of New Orleans doom metal Crowbar have announced plans for an extensive UK tour.

Crowbar’s main man Kirk Windstein is very upbeat about having focused his energies entirely on Crowbar and is looking forward to bringing this latest tour to the fans:
“Crowbar is my heart and soul. The music is a part of me that I am extremely proud of. It’s an amazing feeling to be putting all of my energy and focus into something that I created 25 years ago! We are extremely excited to record our 10th full length album and to bring the riffs to as many people as possible on tour. See you on the road!”
In addition to their UK tour in February and March, Crowbar have lined up a busy summer of European and American festivals including the infamous Maryland Deathfest, France’s Hellfest and of course the UK’s own Bloodstock Open Air 2014!
