After a lengthy hiatus of 15 plus years, gloomy melodic metallers Pist.On have confirmed their delayed return with the announcement of a UK tour in June 2018. The band has lined up seven shows which kick off in Birmingham on June 23rd. The core of the Brooklyn based outfit remains with Henry Font (Vocals / Guitar), Burton Gans (Guitar) and Jeff McManus (Drums). Joining them is new bass guitarist Jack Hanley (ex The Deadlyz).

PIST.ON, who will be celebrating 25 years since first forming are looking forward to picking up where they left off, “pissing people off and kicking ass on stage.” Having never officially split up, the band are set to emerge from their self imposed exile, a period which gave the band time to tackle numerous issues and retrieve a sense of sanity.

The band have commented: “It feels great being reunited after all this time. When we got together for our first rehearsal, it was as if we’d never been apart; the chemistry was still there.”

“We kinda left everything hanging after our last tour but never split, just took a back seat and dealt with a lot of professional and personal issues that was thrown at us. We’ve all moved on but we kept in touch over the years. In our own minds we always had the desire to get back together, but it was never talked about until recently.”

“We’re excited at having the chance to do this again. We’re jumping back in and gonna see how it goes.”
