The Five Hundred & Shvapes UK Tour 2019 poster
Make no mistake, 2018 has been a fantastic year for metal act The Five Hundred.

Following their signing to Long Branch Records, the furious quintet received high praise in the media upon the release of their debut album “Bleed Red” and took their sound on the road to multiple UK and European festivals.

Now, poised at the edge of a new year filled with opportunity, Nottingham by way of Gibraltar aggressors will be blasting into 2019 with a punishing statement of intent for the future.

The Five Hundred announced earlier this week that they will tear mercilessly into January 2019 with a run of eight UK tour dates, joining  by Death Blooms as supporting acts for Birmingham hard rock outfit Shvpes. A full list of dates and online ticket links can be found below.

Aggressive yet euphoric, empowering yet simultaneously enslaving, The Five Hundred are renowned for overcoming adversities and laying siege to every stage they play. From struggling with tourettes, OCD, gambling and drug addiction, to perfecting their art and proving that together they are a force of nature, The band have torn out of the starting gates with purposeful intent, following the release of their debut album with a string of festival performances, including MacMillan Fest and Tech Fest.
