This is a bit of an odd combination. Asking Alexandria have announced the "The Don't Pray For Us" and it has quite the eclectic batch of openers, Motionless In White, Whitechapel, Chimaira and I Killed The Prom Queen. The tour kicks off on April 19th and runs for a little over a month. I'm assuming Chimaira will be playing some new material. Here is the full routing: (more…)

When they're not buying their own CD at the mall, Suffocation are hitting the road this spring for what's sure to be a brutal 24-date-tour of the U.S. with Exhumed, Rings Of Saturn, Admiron and Lords of War! Unfortunately us East Coast dwellers will be missing out on Lord of War, so I suppose the rest of the amazing bill will just have to suffice.
Below you'll find the dates at which you volunteer yourself to be pummeled by all that heavy: (more…)
Well this is definitely great news. The Death To All tour, which pays tribute to late legendary vocalist and guitarist Chuck Shuldiner is coming back for another run in 2013. Last year, the first iteration of the tour visited a handful of stops with an all-star lineup of former members of Death, but was later plagued with drama surrounding the financials of the event, with some musicians not getting paid by the organizers, Sick Drummer, but now the tour is back on with Sick Drummer out of the picture. Here are the US dates: (more…)

I can't remember the last time Bolt Thrower decided to tour the States. Because it hasn't happened in like…a million years! But, as a way to help them get from this year's Maryland Deathfest to Chaos in Tejas, the band have lined up a little over a week of new tour dates.
