CRIPPLE BASTARDS frontman Giulio commented on the tour:
"Cripple Bastards are hitting the States for the 4th time, this time for an all-Californian tour with RESISTANT CULTURE.
We'll be introducing songs from our new album "Variante alla morte", and a shitload of older tracks. We are pleased to come back to California because it's one of the areas where Cripple have the biggest following and a lot of friends. We are proud to share the stage with tons of incredible bands, some of which have been really inspiring for us through the years. This mini-tour is ending with the LA Murderfest, that has a killer bill... see you there!"
CRIPPLE BASTARDS released "Variante Alla Morte" on FETO Records and simultaneously on gatefold vinyl by Deep Six Records (USA) in 2008.
