The Safety Fire:  added to Protest The Hero UK & EU tour
With The Faceless dropping out of the imminent EU & UK Protest The Hero tour, UK tech-metallers The Safety Fire have now replaced them as main support.

Guitarist Derya 'Dez' Nagle had this to say:

"So, I think this is as last minute as it gets, but we are extremely happy to announce we will be joining Protest The Hero on their forthcoming European tour. While it is under rather unfortunate circumstances and sad we won't be seeing our friends in The Faceless, we are looking forward to being reunited with our brüs in Protest The Hero and The Contortionist.

Last year The Safety Fire released their fantastic second album 'Mouth of Swords' to critical acclaim, and you can find some of the reactions below:

'it's almost impossible not to be swept away in their swirling, writhing beauty' - 4K's - Kerrang!

'stunning musicianship with an urgency and energy that's hard to catch on album' - 8/10 - Big Cheese

'From finger-breaking arpeggios, thundering low-end riffs and lightning fast tapping to delicate chordal parts and esoteric harmonies; it's all on display.' - 4/5 - TotalGuitar
