As previously reported, Annihilator will play in Ottawa, Ontario at the Obsession Live Lounge on July 20th before hitting the summer festival circuit. Club owners have checked in with the following update:
"What if you could hear the entire Feast album before anyone else in the world? Wouldn't that be cool? Well tell ya what, instead of having a support act opening the show for Annihilator, Obsession Live Lounge will be hosting the world album premiere of Feast before the show!
That's right, just for Ottawa, for Jeff's hometown crowd, we've decided that it would be a fantastic treat to hear what will be the must have album of 2013 right here at Obsession. A private CD listening party for his closest fans! So, we'll open doors at 8:00pm, offer drink and apps specials and starting at 9:00pm we will play the entire Feast album from end to end. Hey, we may even convince Jeff and Dave to come up early and intro a few!
And, if that's not cool enough, if hearing the album a month before release isn't so awesome, if being part of the few out of the entire metal population on the planet to hear it first isn't totally nuts, then JW will also be giving away one of his coveted, signature series Epiphone Annihilation-V guitars to one of you metal heads in attendance.
Tickets are almost sold out so get yours today! Online at Ticketweb.ca

Annihilator are gearing up for studio album #14, simply titled Feast, to be released on August 23rd in Europe, August 26th in the UK, and August 27th in North America, via the UDR label. The deluxe ECO-book version will also feature a bonus CD containing a 15 song Best Of Annihilator tracklisting... a grand total of 24 songs in one package... with a 3D cover!
Jeff Waters and company tear through each release with honest, raw power and energy, along with excellent technical skill, giving the metal world the most-tasteful mixtures of huge, metal riffs with the idea of the perfect song and some legendary solo shredding as the icing on the cake. That’s why Jeff and Annihilator have been a major influence on countless well-known metal acts and musicians around the world. In fact, countless, successful non-metal acts and musicians cite Waters and Co. as an influence in their careers. Tours with everyone from JUDAS PRIEST to PANTERA to TRIVIUM, plus dozens of headlining tours and festivals around the world have been going on steady since 1989 for this band; no rest as the demand for this band never ends. Annihilator has been touted as one of the best live acts in metal music. High-end musicianship, tight playing and massive energy and fun are what these lads are known for. Their music? Honest melodic thrash and heavy metal, combined with traces of blues, classical and jazz. Hell, there is even some death and punk in there, too.
Annihilator is the biggest-selling Canadian heavy/thrash metal band in Canadian history with close to 2 million units sold. Says Waters “We truly are among the few bands with a long history, that have always waved the flag for honesty, integrity and perseverance in this hard-edge category of music.”
