Lamb of God have just announced a headlining U.S. tour kicking off in the early weeks of 2016. Even better, Lamb of God recruited thrash legends Anthrax as direct support.

This monster tour will hit the ground in Pittsburgh, Pa. on Jan. 15 and run until Feb. 12 at the Hollywood Palladium in Los Angeles. Two additional support bands have yet to be revealed, but will be announced soon.

Some had speculated that Lamb of God might join Megadeth on tour similar to what they've done in Europe, allowing drummer Chris Adler to pull double duty. Megadeth leader Dave Mustaine recently squashed the rumor, and now we know that Lamb of God will be touring with another "Big 4" act instead.

Lamb of God continue to ride high after their newest album, VII: Sturm Und Drang, debuted at No. 3 on the Billboard 200 chart. As for Anthrax, they plan to release For All Kings on Feb. 26. The album is Anthrax's highly anticipated follow-up to 2011's Worship Music.

Tickets for Lamb of God's tour with Anthrax will go on sale Nov. 13 at 10AM local time. American Express Card Members will have the opportunity to purchase tickets before the general public beginning Nov. 10 at 2PM local time through Nov. 12 at 10PM local time, in select markets.
