Dragged Into Sunlight announce UK dates…

Following the overwhelming success of 2012’s ‘Widowmaker’ album (LTW review), Dragged Into Sunlight are again ready to grab the metal underground by the throat with the announcement of tour dates this May, taking in the UK and Ireland.

This will mark the first time the band have toured the UK in three years and what’s more, joining them will be experimental juggernaut, Bossk, touring the UK for the first time in six years. A lethal yet thrilling combination.

Here are the dates:

Fri 24th May 2013 The Pint, Dublin, Ireland
Sat 25th May 2013 Birthdays, London
Sun 26th May 2013 Alter Ego, Manchester
Mon 27th May 201Audio, Glasgow

‘Widowmaker’ is viciously haunting voyage into the macabre. An eerie masterpiece that pieces together a colossal atmosphere belonging as much to the Swans or Neurosis as it does to Autopsy and Burning Witch.

Phil Newall is 47, from The Wirral - he earns his living not writing about music nor playing music...though sorely wishes he could. He was fortunate enough to see many of the first generation punk bands when they played the U18's matinee shows at Eric's, Liverpool. As an attendee at Eric's he was exposed to punk rock, dub reggae, art rock, and all manner of weirdness; as a customer at Probe Records he was variously served and scowled at by Pete Wylie and Pete Burns - he has written for Record Collector, Whisperin & Hollerin, and Spiral Scratch and wanted to write a book detailing the Liverpool punk scene; however with 'Head-On' Julian Cope beat him to it...and frankly did a much better job.


  1. There is absolutely no doubt that this tour will be THE highlight of UK extreme metal in 2013.
    I shall be at the Leeds gig, losing the will to live and having what little faith I have remaining in mankind torn from me. And I can’t wait…

  2. This will be the suitable blog for any person who desires to learn about this subject. You realize so significantly its pretty much challenging to argue with you (not that I actually would want?-HaHa). You definitely put a new spin on a topic thats been written about for years. Fantastic stuff, just outstanding!
