Longtime friends LAMB OF GOD and KILLSWITCH ENGAGE have joined forces for what will undoubtedly be one of the essential “can’t miss” tours of the fall of 2013. The tour launches October 22 in Toronto at Kool Haus and then moves down the road to Sound Academy for a second show October 23rd before canvassing much of the US and Canada. The two bands are a dominant live pairing, and will combine for 28 North American shows in total. Support for all shows except Los Angeles will be provided by thrash legends TESTAMENT, with HUNTRESS opening all shows.
LAMB OF GOD will end the North American portion of the Resolution record cycle with this tour. It will include a coast to coast visit to all major Canadian cities which will be their first visit to Canada on this cycle other than a festival play in June in Montebello and a show in Toronto in January 2012. In the last year, both Ashes of the Wake and Sacrament have been certified gold in Canada. LAMB OF GOD will finish the Resolution cycle completely with a visit to Europe and South Africa in January 2014. Details on that tour will be released late August.
KILLSWITCH ENGAGE released their sixth album Disarm The Descent this April, which debuted at No. 7 on the Billboard Top 200; at No. 1 on Hard Rock Chart; and at No. 1 on the Rock Chart. It marked the first album with frontman Jesse Leach at the vocal helm since 2002’s now-classic Alive Or Just Breathing. The album has been warmly embraced and well-received by both fans and the media, as it has just crossed the 100,000-sold mark in only three months of release. Having just wrapped a highly successful US summer headline tour, KILLSWITCH ENGAGE look to continue their Disarm the Descent record cycle with this fall trek.
