Brit metal heroes Sacred Mother Tongue fly the flag for the new breed of UK noise merchants next month after bagging their biggest gig to date.

The band support the Michael Schenker Group on June 2 at a star-studded show celebrating 30 years of axe-slinging goodness.

Schenker will be appearing at Shperherd’s Bush Empire with an all-star line up including members of Whitesnake, Rainbow and The Scorpions.

And Sacred Mother Tongue will be flying the flag for the new breed of British metal acts currently sweeping the nation.

Guitarist Andy James is widely tipped as one of the most exciting players in the world and we can’t wait to hear Schenker’s verdict.

Look out for news of the gig right here next month.
