LOCK UP will be doing a brief European club tour in Bursary 2013 in support of their latest album “Necropolis Transparent”.
The band’s Nick Barker commented:
We’re really excited and looking forward to blasting our way across Europe in Febuary 2013. LOCK UP on the whole don’t really get to do club tours very often, so this is a great opportunity for us do what we do, get up close and in your face with the fans in a more intimate setting as opposed to playing the bigger open-air-festival stages we’re accustomed to. Don’t get me wrong — we love playing the big festivals, but with the brutal and savage nature of our music, it’s very well suited in a club enviroment and we feel both the band and fans vibe on that a lot more.
