Volbeat Announce 2016 North American Tour With Killswitch Engage
Volbeat have sealed the deal on a North American tour and now it's time to boogie! The Danish metal act will be out in support of their latest release, Seal the Deal & Let's Boogie, taking metalcore veterans Killswitch Engage and Black Wizard on the road with them.
The trek will kick off with two festival appearances as they begin up north in Bangor, Maine as part of the Rise Above festival on Aug. 6 followed by Heavy MTL in Montreal, Canada the next day. From there, the run will hit Brooklyn, N.Y., extend out through the Midwest and even up to Alaska before heading back down to Denver, Colo. on Sept. 10 for the High Elevation festival. With a one week break between dates, everything will conclude on Sept. 18 at the Rock Allegiance festival in Chester, Pa.
Ticket pre-sales begin tomorrow (June 7) at 10AM local time at Volbeat's website. Each ticket purchased will include a copy of the group's newest album, available as digital download or a CD. Fans who have already bought the album will have the option to gift their copy. Paid postage is required.
Killswitch Engage will be touting songs from their latest, Incarnate, which gave the band their highest Billboard 200 debut, landing at No. 6 earlier this year. Black Wizard, a stoner doom outfit from Canada, will be out in support of their third record, New Waste.
