Long Island hardcore/thrash hybrid, This Is Hell, has announced a string of U.S. tour dates in support of the band’s fourth studio album, “Black Mass.” The tour will kick off tomorrow night in Schenectady, N.Y., before wrapping up at the New England Metal and Hardcore Festival in Worcester, Mass. on April 20th.

The band has also released a music video for the song, “Demons,” which can be viewed below. Commented guitarist, Rick Jimenez, “In the downtime we just recently had, we blasted through a video for ‘Demons’ from the Black Mass album. The song is fast, raw and thrashy, so the video is fast, raw and thrashy, and it’s us just doing our thing in the practice space. We’re ready to explode back on the road in the States after our break and bring some ruckus!”
