Hatebreed Unveil 2013 Fall Tour With Shadows Fall, Battlecross + the Acacia Strain
Hatebreed have a busy fall ahead of them, as they are headlining a North American tour to promote their latest album ‘Divinity of Purpose.’ Joining the metalheads on the trek are Shadows Fall, Battlecross, and the Acacia Strain. Before their tour begins on Sept. 26 in Poughkeepsie, N.Y. (The Chance), Hatebreed will also share stages with GWAR for a handful of dates.
Shadows Fall are also supporting the release of a new album, as ‘Fire From the Sky’ was released just last month. The band also toured earlier in the year with Hatebreed and joined Fear Factory for a string of May dates.
In an interview with Loudwire, Hatebreed frontman Jamey Jasta was more than happy to tour once gain with Shadows Fall. “I feel like their last record is one of the best records and we’re label mates,” said Jasta. “When I see people from New England, people from Connecticut, Massachusetts doing well, I’m really happy … It’s just cool to see, we all kind of came up together at the same time.”
As for the Acacia Strain, the group just wrapped up a tour with Lamb of God and Decapitated last week, and they also announced the additions of guitarists Devin Shidaker and Richard Gomez to the band. Battlecross are booked for the first half of summer thanks to their participation in the 2013 Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival. Their sophomore album ‘War of Will’ is due July 9.
