There is going to be a crash, bang, wallop in North America this September, since new wave of British heavy metal and thrash icons Raven will embark on a tour of U.S. and Canada in support of the release of their 'Rock Until You Drop -- A Long Day's Journey' documentary. The DVD chronicles the band's 40-year career and is out on July 16.

On the tour, the band will be support by their pals in Mpire of Evil, featuring former Venom members Tony Dolan and Jeff Dunn. The trek begins on Sept. 11 in Fort Lauderdale, Fla., one of the capitals of extreme metal, and runs through an Oct. 1 finale in Chicago.

Raven will continue to tour beyond the run, serving as double headliners on the Diamond Head tour, which canvases the West Coast in October.
