Britain’s classic power metal band CLOVEN HOOF have announced a full-on live assault of the United States set for this Sept. – Oct.

The tour will launch in Norman, OK with various shows to include special guests such as Vicious Rumors, Savage Master, Valande, Ruthless, Ashbury, and others.

The tour also includes a stop at this year’s Frost And Fire Festival in Ventura, CA.

CLOVEN HOOF:
George Call – Vocals
Danny White – Drums
Lee Payne – Bass

Known as one of the more theatrical bands of the NWOBHM movement, the origins of CLOVEN HOOF hail back to the late Seventies. The band has remained a constant metallic powerhouse in the decades since despite a few brief periods of inactivity or hiatuses.

CLOVEN HOOF recently reported that they’d signed a deal with Pure Steel Records and are currently in the studio working on a follow-up album to Who Mourns For The Morning Star, tentatively planned for a fall release.
