Flotsam And Jetsam drummer Jason Bittner commented.

“After a few missed attempts this year due to unforeseen circumstances beyond our control, we can finally announce some dates around the country. We are very excited to get out with this package and thrash through the United States, playing material from our new album, fan favorites, as well as celebrating the 30-year anniversary of the ‘Doomsday For The Deceiver’ album.”
