Well…this was of course bound to happen. A few weeks ago Japan’s annual hardcore-metal fest Bloodaxe Fest announced Chokehold as one of the headliners of this year’s edition, and today the internet is abuzz with a full Japan tour announcement.
Check out the dates in the instagram pic below…the band has also spoken about it on their facebook:
“So we will be playing a few shows in Japan from September 21 to 25. Details soon. No there will be no North American shows. Our initial plan was to do the North American shows, Europe and Japan. We just take forever to do anything. We might pop up under an assumed name to play a practice show before Japan though … lol?
Confirmed dates for Japan are below. We will be doing 1 show before we go to Japan. No idea where or when as we are still working on it. But it won’t be a big deal!
