Sand-colored military vehicles, manned by what appeared to be armed soldiers, were lined up in front of Hollywood's Key Club yesterday afternoon (April 24) - all part of an elaborate tour announcement put together in honor of the Metal Hammer-sponsored summer tour dubbed, Trespass America.

The 24-city trek will feature headliners Five Finger Death Punch and Killswitch Engage, along with Trivium, Emmure, God Forbid, Pop Evil, and Battlecross.

As the event got underway, 'hostages' whose heads were covered in hoods were marched to the stage by the 'soldiers'. One by one, as their names were announced, each person removed their hoods, revealing themselves as members from the various bands.

Noisecreep has video of some of the unveilings, along with an exclusive interview with Ivan Moody and Chris Kael of Five Finger Death Punch.

Check out our exclusive footage and all of the tour dates below!

This tour promises to be a metal lover's dream this summer - and of course Noisecreep will be on hand with some exclusive coverage once things kick off in July.
