Battle of the Bays 2017 Tour

Metal fans young and old, behold a tour that should appeal to all. Tampa’s death metal godfathers Obituary are teaming up with San Francisco’s Bay Area thrash icons Exodus for a fall co-headlining tour, but they’re also bringing along two of metal’s up-and-coming bands in Power Trip and Dust Bolt.

The “Battle of the Bays American Tour 2017″ will kick off Sept. 14 in Durham, N.C., and continue through an Oct. 15 finale in Baton Rouge, La. All dates for the run can be seen below and tickets will go on sale this Friday (June 16).

Obituary are touring in support of their self-titled album, which features the animated video and single “Ten Thousand Ways to Die.” The band will also be partaking in a European Festival tour this summer. Exodus, meanwhile, last released the Blood In, Blood Out album in 2014, but have taken advantage of spots in Gary Holt’s Slayer schedule to get out and play shows.

Power Trip have generated plenty of buzz and are currently promoting their latest album, Nightmare Logic. The North American dates come on the heels of a wild European trek with Napalm Death and Brujeria. And Dust Bolt fill out the bill with electrifying thrash metal. The band’s latest effort is 2016’s Mass Confusion disc.
