After SOULFLY plays the 10th annual D-Low Memorial Festival on August 17 with quite of few special guests, they'll be gearing up to destroy the ears of North American metal fans beginning in the middle of September. FULL BLOWN CHAOS and INCITE will open the entire tour. WICKED WISDOM will provide support on the first portion of the trek and SCARS OF TOMORROW will take over their spot at the start of October.
SOULFLY are continuing to tour in support of their latest album, "Dark Ages", available now on Roadrunner Records. The follow-up to 2004's "Prophecy" was produced by mainman Max Cavalera and was mixed by Terry Date, who has previously worked with PANTERA and DEFTONES, among others.
