Critically lauded Northern California metal power trio High on Fire have barely stopped to take a breath since the whirlwind release of 'Snakes for the Divine.' The band -- led by oft-shirtless vocalist/guitarist Matt Pike, who sounds like he gargles with a whiskey/vodka cocktail before stepping on stage -- is heading back out on the road for a fall North American tour, dubbed Sanction Annihilation.

HOF will headline, with support provided by Kylesa on all dates. Torche will appear on a spate of dates, as will Municipal Waste. These High on Fire tour dates are so metal ... it probably craps nuggets of iron ore.
