Hughes & Kettner caught up with Jeff Waters before Annihilator’s show at Luxembourg’s den Atelier venue in November 2015 and he showed them his Hughes & Kettner GrandMeister 36 setup, his ergonomic pedalboard and the other little bits and pieces he needs to get an Annihilator crowd whipped into a frenzy. Watch below:
Hughes & Kettner also did a full sit-down interview with Jeff later on that day, where he told them all about his favourite guitar amp recording techniques, plans for the next Annihilator album, and a whole lot more! Watch the interview below:
Waters recently checked in with the following post-European tour update:
“After one hell of a successful and fun tour and new CD release, discussions are going on right now for Round 2 of the Annihilator – Europe In The Blood Tour. Nothing confirmed and we are still getting more and more offers coming in, but yes, we will likely be back to Russia, Denmark, Germany and many others that we missed in Europe on this recent run that covered three months. We will let you know when but it will likely be early 2016 Thanks to all of you who came out so far and we are working hard to bring this metal madness to everywhere else!
“For touring/booking inquiries in Europe, contact our agency Seaside Touring/Thomas Kreidner. For everywhere outside Europe, contact management: email@example.com.
“We might also be looking for a good metal support band. Our last tour had some pretty kick-ass bands: Harlott and Archer. This time, we would bring only one support (so we can play a longer set). Interested bands can contact management with a link to a video/info of the band at firstname.lastname@example.org.”
On October 16th, Annihilator performed in Belgrade, Serbia at Dorn Omladine in support of their new album, Suicide Society. Fan-filmed video from the show is available below.
The setlist on the night was as follows:
“King Of The Kill”
“No Way Out”
“Set The World On Fire”
“Tricks and Traps”
“Second To None”
“Refresh The Demon”
“Chicken And Corn”
“Kraf Dinner” / “21” / “Reduced To Ash”
