Monster Energy and Idol Roc Entertainment have announced the itinerary for the 2012 Monster Energy Outbreak Tour. The North American routing kicks off in Edmonton, Alberta on November 16 and wraps on December 16 in Tampa, Florida.
ASKING ALEXANDRIA will be joined by support acts AS I LAY DYING, SUICIDE SILENCE, MEMPHIS MAY FIRE and ATTILA. The lineup secured prompted tour producer Steve Glazer (Idol Roc Entertainment) to share, "Without question, this is the strongest lineup we've assembled for Outbreak to date. Each year we promise to grow our brand and it all starts with delivering the fans an undeniable lineup of artists on the rise paired with an affordable ticket price."
ASKING ALEXANDRIA guitarist Ben Bruce stated, "America, we are back, we are excited, we are ready and we are fucking headlining! This is our biggest headlining tour ever and we are bringing with us, the biggest, heaviest and best bands that rock has to offer.
"This Monster Energy Outbreak Tour is going to be fucking insane, more so especially due to the fact that this is not only going to be our last tour of the year and our last tour in America for quite awhile, but also because this is going to be the last tour on the 'Reckless And Relentless' album cycle. We will be playing songs from 'Stand Up And Scream', 'Reckless And Relentless' and a handful of brand new songs from our upcoming album. You, North America, have been chosen to hear our new songs before anyone else in the world.
"Let's make this a tour to fucking remember. Let's end 2012 bigger, better and harder than anywhere else on this earth.
"We can't wait to see you all.
"If 2012 really is the end of the world, then all I can say is....we are going out with a bang motherfuckers! We will see you all soon."
