FACT Return to Smash the UK: February 2013 Tour Confirmed

Japan’s masked punk rockers FACT will be making their long awaited return to the UK in February 2013 to continue their ongoing  ‘FACT World Tour 『burundanga』2012-2013’  (click here for their trailer for it). Previously, the energetic headbangers hit the UK in 2009 with a headlining tour combined with a festival appearance on the main stage at Sonisphere, before returning to tour again in 2010.

Back then FACT were a five-piece. Since then they’ve picked up an additional guitarist, Adam (Versus the Night), meaning they now rank in with the likes of Iron Maiden by having three guitarists. The freshly formed sextet will be playing 15-dates across the UK supporting Brit-hardcore boys Your Demise along with Counterparts and Heights.
