March 24 will mark the beginning of the inaugural Avalanche Tour. Headlining the end-of-winter trek are Stone Sour, alongside Theory of a Deadman, Skillet, Halestorm and Art of Dying. All the bands have truly made their mark with unforgettable full-volume shows; this is a tour not to sleep on.

"We've been looking for the right tour to headline, and this is definitely it," Stone Sour frontman Corey Taylor exclaimed in a statement. "We're already working on an amazing show, the kind we have never done before. We're gonna rip these stages to shreds and leave the audience with crazy eyes and sore throats! Here we go!!"

This tour will be Theory of a Deadman's first outing in close to a year, as the trio have been writing and recording their follow-up to 'Scars & Souvenirs.' According to the band, there is a chance that a new song or two will make their live debut on the Avalanche run.

Skillet, Halestorm and Art of Dying round out the all-star bill. Only 22 dates have been announced at this point, and more are expected to follow. Tickets for most shows will go on sale Feb. 5, but discounted fan club pre-sales will begin Feb. 1 through Artist Arena.
