Tony Martin to tour US for 'Headless Cross' anniversary

Tony Martin - vocals
Rolf Munkees - guitar
Jamie Mallender - bass
Danny Needham - drums
Geoff Nicholls - keyboards

"Yesterday they confirmed that all visa applications were under way and that means we're definitely on our way.

Everything that's out there up till today has been speculation, but if you wanna start talkin' about it you can say you heard it for real from me.

The band is gonna have an advertising tag of Headless Cross. Its really the TONY MARTIN BAND, and that's what we entered the states as. But the promoter has got itchy fingers. I think and decided its better to use the album title. I'm not entirely happy with it just because...., but I decided to run with it .

So the idea is to commemorate 20 years since Headless Cross and I can reveal that some of the songs have never been done live before like 'Black Moon'; it's a really complex track but we're gonna bring it to the stage and show it off. Also we've just left behind the anniversary of Eternal Idol, so there's gonna be some more off that album too like 'Born To Lose'.

Looking forward to getting out there and seeing what response we get.

I have to say its been a hard slog with negotiations and getting visas and stuff so we come at very short notice and hope to be with you guys in just under three weeks from now!!!

We aren't able to bring with us much in the way of visual stuff just because there is so little time to get it all together so, its just the songs. Me and well I hope you guys!!! Dates are becoming published and that was a little premature cause some of them didn't have confirmation but from now there will be and so if you find something near you its almost certain to be real.

We're out there until the end of August."

This is pretty much how I feel.

Back when I was first getting into Metal, a few of the first purchases I made were a few Black Sabbath CDs. One of these was a compilation, which happened to be strictly Martin-era Sabbath, so Headless Cross actually ended up being one of the first Sabbath songs I ever heard.

This is really awesome news, I hope there's a date near me. I'm totally there.

Agreed all round. 'Headless Cross' is my favourite Sabbath album, by any lineup

I'm just curious as to when they're going to start announcing dates. If the tour is really supposed to happen in July/August, they should really get going.

What they should really be doing is touring England first. English band, English singer, and you lot didn't give a fuck about that album when it came out anyway
