LAMB OF GOD, DETHKLOK, GOJIRA: North American Tour Officially Announced

LAMB OF GOD and DETHKLOK will join forces for a 32-show North American tour kicking off on August 1 in Seattle, Washington. The three-time Grammy Award-nominated band from Richmond, Virginia and the world's most brutal animated death band from Adult Swim's "Metalocalypse" animated series will shred their way through cities throughout in the U.S. and Canada, ending September 15 in San Francisco, California. Support on the trek will come from French progressive metallers GOJIRA.

The upcoming tour marks the return of LAMB OF GOD to North American stages where they will support their latest album, "Resolution", which debuted at No. 3 on The Billboard 200 chart when it was released earlier this year. As in tours past, Brendon Small, the co-creator and composer behind DETHKLOK, will bring the animated band to life on stage each night alongside an all-star band including the legendary Gene Hoglan, Bryan Beller and Mike Keneally. Building on the success of "The Dethalbum" and "The Dethalbum II" from Williams Street Records, Small is currently in the studio working on the band’s third album release scheduled for later this year. Additionally, new episodes from the fourth season of "Metalocalypse" currently air on Adult Swim Sundays at 12:15 a.m. (ET/PT).
