Bay Area thrashers Hatchet, will take their metal attack back on the road starting September 14th. This next U.S. run will see the band supporting Act of Defiance, the new band featuring guitarist Chris Broderick and Shawn Drover, both formerly of Megadeth, in addition to bassist Matt Bachand (Shadows Fall) and vocalist Henry Derek (Thrown into Exile, ex-Scar the Martyr).
“Hatchet is beyond thrilled to support the guys in Act of Defiance this fall on their headline run of dates. Not only is the past connection to Megadeth cool with Chris and Shawn, but the band has also quickly gained a sound that is their own and all the musicians bring their own flare,” comments singer/guitarist Julz Ramos. “It's also great to see a band that isn't afraid to work from the ground up and play some small to mid-size clubs despite them all having great history and past success. We look forward to smashing and thrashing with these guys at every club. We are excited!”
