Steve Grimmett's Grim Reaper will play five new festival dates starting at Bang Your Head in Germany on July 14th 2017. Normally that wouldn't be much to write home about but after the past six months Steve Grimmett has had it's a minor miracle.

As widely reported Steve had to have part of his leg amputated in Ecuador while on the bands South American tour in January after an operation to stem an aggressive infection failed. Since then Steve has been fighting to get back out there and it all starts again with these newly announced dates.

Steve said:

"I'm excited as hell to be returning to the stage. It's what I love to do, but it has to be done in a careful manner. I have to find out what I can and can't do for the time being so there won't be many gigs this year as I still have eighteen months recovery to go through with more hospital and rehabilitation appointments and it's still all hard work in front of me but I feel I can say 'I'm back'."
