If you aren’t familiar with the So-Cal metal band Sangre yet, you probably missed my review of their album The Great Tribulation back in February. Even if you did read that before, you should totally check it out again, because the post was recently updated with the band’s second video, for the title track from that album.
Anyway, hot on the heels of their performance at the Rockstar Mayhem Festival in San Bernardino, Sangre are all ready to kick off their Jägermeister-sponsored “Devastation Across the Nation” tour, which begins TONIGHT in Arizona, then runs nonstop all around the USA for the next few weeks!

One last thing — being an independent band, these guys could always use a little extra cash to pay for gas and meals and stuff while they’re on the road, so be sure to show your support and grab some merch when they come through your town!
If you won’t be able to make it to a show (which I won’t — I started looking into the options that might have been available in the Pittsburgh area on one of the dates they had open, but before I got very far, the NYC show ended up being scheduled on that day), you can still help them out by buy a shirt, tank top, or CD at http://www.Sangremetal.bigcartel.com/. OR you can just support the band directly through PayPal at Sangreband@gmail.com.
