Malefice have announced a one off show in February in Swindon. They will play The Furnace on February 4, 2012 with support from I Defy, Kinasis and Deliverence.
Prior to that Malefice will team up with football legend Marcus Hahnemann for the next Jägermeister 'Ice Cold' Studio Session, where rock bands and icons meet for the first time in a recording studio and 'break the ice' by working on a track together. This takes place at London's famous Strongroom Studios on January 17th.

Marcus Hahnemann, US international goalkeeper (Best goalkeeper in the world - 2009/2010 Castrol Performance Index) who is currently playing for Everton is a well known Heavy Metal fan but this will be the first time he has ever taken his passion for Metal into a recording studio.
Marcus said: "Today I have come down to London for the Arsenal game. Getting ready for the game always includes some heavy rock to get me going. But I can't stop thinking about when I am coming back down here in a few weeks to record with Malefice! So hopefully my love of music and their love of football with translate to a really cool track!"
Reading band Malefice are one of the leading exponents of modern British Heavy Metal and released their album 'Awaken The Tides' to critical acclaim earlier in the year.
Vocalist, Dale Butler commented: "We're really stoked to be recording a special track with Marcus Hahnemann. Given that before every game he listens to Five Finger Death Punch or Slipknot to 'get himself psyched' for the game has to be a pretty good indicator of where his musical tastes are! We even have a track 'Outnumbered/Outgunned' on our album 'Awaken The Tides' which is all about that rush of adrenaline you get when you're with your mates at the terraces in the away end on a Saturday afternoon, so this collaboration of football and Metal is gonna be something you won't want to miss"
The collaboration will be streamed exclusively on the Jägermeister UK Facebook page from February 1st 2012 as well as photos and extended footage of the recording process.
