FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE New York, NY (October 7, 2013) – Bay Area Thrashers Hatchet are excited to announce their upcoming November ‘Death Upon The West’ tour with fellow shredders Exmortus. The tour will take the band across the south and west to major market cities offering thrash fans a chance to rock out at intimate venues.

“Hatchet is excited to announce our dates for our Death Upon the West Tour! We are thrilled to be hitting the road again, this time with our shred-tastic brothers in Exmortus. We had a blast while on tour earlier this year in support of Soilwork and we made many new fans. We are looking forward to seeing all of you again! This tour will mainly be focused on the western part of the country but will be stretching as far Kansas City, so we have a couple of the mid-states covered as well. Fans can expect more intimate venues and cheap admission prices throughout. So we wanna see all you Hatchet legions out thrashin in full force! See ya soon, Death upon the west.” – Julz Ramos

March 5th, 2013 marked the release date of ‘Dawn Of The End’, the latest album from Hatchet. The quartet’s sophomore work is a huge step forward in precise aggression, performance, songwriting and production.
Since hitting the Bay Area Metal scene in early 2007, Hatchet quickly made a name for itself. They worked hard to gig as often as they could and also not compete with, but group together bands of the like to help strengthen the scene. Focusing on playing with other young starting thrash bands in their area, the fan base grew. Eventually they reached out to the neighboring Los Angeles thrash scene which was also flourishing and invited various bands up to the bay area to diversify their shows, and spread overall thrash metal awareness.
Their sophomore effort, “Dawn of the End”, released on their new label, The End Records, showcases a much more aggressive and professionally oriented band. The group has stated its hunger to hit the road and prove that thrash metal is still a force to be reckoned with.
