Godfathers of grind, BRUTAL TRUTH, are heading to Europe this week to commence the first leg of their final dates on this side of the pond. Earlier this year, the band announced that they were calling time on the grind after 24 years.
The shows kick off tonight in Copenhagen and will see the band play their final shows in countries throughout Europe. They will head back over in June for shows in France and Spain, before one final visit to bow out at Obscene Extreme festival in the Czech Republic.
Of their appearance at Temples Festival in Bristol, UK this weekend, Danny Lilker offered the following: “OK people, this is it! The last Brutal Truth UK show! Unlike that well known and loved British icon Ozzy, when we say we’re done, we’re done! Come on down and grind with us one more time. Love, Dan Lilker”
