THROWDOWN will headline the Scum Of The Earth Tour, which is set to kick off in February and will cross the United States (and some Canadian cities as well) through early April. It is the band's first headlining tour in support of their new album, "Venom & Tears", which was released in August.
Joining THROWDOWN on the bill for the Scum Of The Earth Tour, which is presented by Black Rose District Clothing, will be Swedish metal madmen SOILWORK, whose own "Sworn to a Great Divide" was recently released to rave reviews from fans and critics. THROUGH THE EYES OF THE DEAD are also onboard, touring in support of a new album of their own, "Malice". WAR OF AGES rounds out what is sure to be a devastating lineup.
"We haven't headlined our own tour in a long time, which is exciting," commented THROWDOWN frontman Dave Peters. "The most rewarding thing about playing our songs live is interacting and communicating with the audience. And now that our new album has been out for a few months, the songs have had a chance to really sink in, and we're looking forward to seeing people's reactions to songs both new and old. We're also very stoked to be touring with SOILWORK who are coming all the way over from Sweden. And with THROUGH THE EYES OF THE DEAD and WAR OF AGES onboard, it's a very strong and diverse bill."
The Scum Of The Earth Tour will be preceded by THROWDOWN dates in smaller cities on the West Coast with MY CHILDREN MY BRIDE and ARSONISTS GET ALL THE GIRLS in support. Look for confirmed dates for that very soon.
"We're going to be stepping up our production on this tour as well, both sonically and visually," Peters added. "And with a bill as energized as this one, it's going to make for a great show all around."
