Currently out in Europe with WEDNESDAY 13, THE DEFILED have announced their first headline tour of the UK in support of their latest album, Daggers. Named the No Place Like Home tour, they will hit the road from February 8th - 18th, bringing with them two very hot support acts from the US; BUTCHER BABIES and THE KILLING LIGHTS (featuring Michael Vampire of VAMPIRES EVERYWHERE!).

“Finally we are coming home to headline!” says The AvD. “It's been ages since we've done a proper headline tour of the UK - in fact last time was 2011 - and now we get to do it armed with a whole album's worth of new songs to play! Since Daggers came out we've had some great tours supporting in the US, Europe and even the UK but there's nothing quite like playing a full set to our own crazy fans. We've got some fucking cool support bands with us too, and we're playing London on Valentines day so shit is gonna get sexy.”

Butcher Babies’ are looking forward to their return to the UK, as vocalist Heidi states: “We've been itching to get back to the UK since our 2012 Download festival appearance, so we were thrilled when we were asked to join The Defiled on their February tour.”

Bandmate Carla echoes: “We can't wait to see our Fans across the pond and make some new ones!”

“I am excited to announce that we will be joining The Defiled on their UK run in February.” says Michael Vampire, formerly of Vampires Everywhere!. “This will be my first time in the UK and I'm very proud to debut my new band The Killing Lights. It's an amazing feeling to be able to travel overseas and meet all the fans that have been supporting me over the years. We are playing some amazing venues & i look forward to meeting all of you real soon.”
