In tandem with the tour, RSH will also be launching their much awaited new single “Halfway To Hell” as a limited edition 7” at the end of May through Welsh label Palm Reader Records.
Drummer Gordon Morison has said this of the announcements “We’re really happy now announce after 8 long years Raging Speedhorn will be releasing a brand new single “Halfway To Hell” on Palm Reader Records. Also, we’re going to be on tour smashing the UK with the Amazing Will Haven! Cannot wait!”
The band will also be appearing at Hammerfest, appearing alongside Kamelot, Candlemass, Orange Goblin, Hang The Bastard, Hirax, Hell & many, many more. Hammerfest is set to take place from March 12-15th 2015.
Raging Speedhorn formed in 1998 and went on to release four records, the most successful being their second release “We Will Be Dead Tomorrow”, recorded by Billy Graziadei & Danny Schuler of Biohazard fame. The band achieved chart success with ‘The Gush’ in 2001, toured continuously with acts like Slipknot, Ill Nino, Rammstein and Will Haven, and performed at countless festivals across the globe, including main stage at the inaugural Download Festival in 2004. They split in 2008 following the release of their last record “Before The Sea Was Built” and a subsequent tour of Japan.
