Sacred Reich celebrate 30 years of 'Ignorance' with Byzantine this fall
Metal Blade Records/Youtube

In 1987, Arizona thrash metal rockers Sacred Reich released their debut album Ignorance, which has become a classic in their respective genre. Before their split up in 2000, the outfit went on to release several more albums, including 1996's Heal. While the outfit have been making sporadic performances in Europe since their reunion back in 2007, they haven't done a full North American tour in quite some time (21 years, to be exact). On Monday, the outfit revealed plans to finally end this unfortunate streak and celebrate their debut album with their devoted fans.

Their North American tour kicks off on Sept. 14 inside The Observatory in Santa Ana, California, and it will conclude with a stop inside Club Red in their hometown of Phoenix on Oct. 7. For the majority of the trek, they'll be joined by West Virginia metal outfit Byzantine, who will release their new album The Cicada Tree on June 2 via Metal Blade Records.

Before hitting up North America, Sacred Reich will perform Ignorance in full during their month long European trek this summer. Their entire tour routing can be seen below. Tickets for their North American tour will go on sale this Friday (May 5).
