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 and canvases much of the U.S. and Canada 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 Lamb of God’s first visit to Canada on this cycle, other than a festival performance in June in Montebello and a Toronto show 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; it debuted at No. 7 on the Billboard Top 200 and at No. 1 on both the Hard Rock and Rock charts. 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 U.S. summer headline tour, Killswitch Engage look to continue their Disarm the Descent record cycle with this fall trek.
Both Lamb of God and Killswitch Engage have been wanting to hit the road together for quite some time now and are both excited to finally get the chance. They have also made sure to keep the ticket prices as low as possible so that all of their fans can come out and have a good time with them on this tour.
