I’ve cribbed the press release and dates for you all to enjoy which you can see after the poster but don’t worry, I will return with some closing thoughts after that.

PiercingMetal Thoughts: As someone who’s always been more of the casual fan of the group, I cannot admit to being a super duper study of them. However, with that being said, I have caught them at least a half dozen times over the years and can stress just how impressive they are live. This is not the kind of band that is best enjoyed on a CD or LP, no not at all. You want to be on the edge of the swirling circle pit or braving the masses as one of them and perhaps even crowd surfing (but stay off the stage while the band is playing alright). Combining them with the likes of Devildriver is going to mean absolute mayhem for any of the clubs that they pay a visit to. Big Apple Metalheads will need to go to NJ for this one since the closest its coming to us is the Starland Ballroom. I’m not sure I am making this one myself, but I wonder what you readers think of this particular tour. Let me know in the comments section as that is why we have them. See you next time.
