A few days ago I mentioned how a lot of tours were being announced and that means not only the first go rounds but also the second leg returns of some bands. Since there are too many to avoid sharing with you readers here I am going to keep my intro words brief but still close out the releases as I deem fit. This news was pretty cool as both Anthrax and Killswitch Engage are heading out on a co-headlining run that they are calling “KILLTHRAX” – I love that branding, as it sounds like a Kaiju. Here we go.

LOS ANGELES, CA (Wednesday, December 14, 2016) — Thrash legends Anthrax and Metalcore forefathers Killswitch Engage announce today that they will hit the road this Spring to co-headline a 27-date North American tour, presented by SiriusXM. The bands’ itinerary will also include an April 15 appearance at the Texas Independence Festival in Austin as well as each band headlining two solo shows separate from the double bill. With KSE and Anthrax rotating the closing slot over the course of the dates, the tour will hit the ground on March 29 in Montclair, NJ and then criss-cross the continent, wrapping up in Boston on May 7. The intense and dynamic The Devil Wears Prada will provide direct support on all dates. Tickets go on sale to the general public this Friday, 12/16 at 10AM local time.
