Formed in Cambridge back in 2009, Uncle Acid and the Deadbeats have since churned out five studio albums, with frontman K.R. Starrs being the only constant member. Their latest offering, Wasteland, was released October 12th on Rise Above records and contains ‘some of the catchiest Deadbeats tunes to date’, according to Mojo.

Support on the UK leg of the tour comes from Toronto occult rockers Blood Ceremony. The flute-led four piece cite Black Sabbath, Jethro Tull and Uriah Heap as influences, and have toured with Electric Wizard and Ghost.
