CALIFORNIA BREED, whose self titled debut has become one of the most critically acclaimed rock albums of 2014, have officially announced their first round of European live dates. The band will support Alter Bridge in the US before heading to Europe and will close out the run supporting SLASH featuring Myles Kennedy & The Conspirators on their 5 UK arena dates.
Glenn Hughes and Andrew Watt have chosen ex Queens of the Stone Age/ Eagles of Death Metal drummer JOEY CASTILLO as the drummer for all upcoming dates when it became clear that Jason Bonham’s professional commitments would prevent him from being able to tour with the band. As Glenn Hughes says “We’re just excited to play live, to tour, to be in front of and with our fans. We’re very proud of our debut record and we can’t wait to share it, live and loud, with you.”
