Metal/hard rock acts Butcher Babies and Nonpoint have announced a co-headlining romp being called the ‘Kings & Queens Tour.’ Support will come from Cane Hill and Sumo Cyco.
“Since our inception, we have strived to create a performance that is a full on assault to the senses. We always felt that if you pay your hard earned money to see a show, you should get just that, a show! Raw energy, passion, and intensity,” declares Butcher Babies co-frontwoman Carla Harvey. Heidi Shepherd adds: “We are excited to bring our devout U.S. fanbase a headlining set with lots of surprises; digging deep into our new album Lilith and sprinkling in some old favorites from our last nine years as a band.”
Delving further into the impending run, Nonpoint leadman Elias Soriano comments: “The time off was fun, but it’s back to the business of moving crowds. The new music we play will show where we’re at and what we’re looking for out of the crowds in terms of reaction. We have pulled no punches! The live show is what we’re about, so expect our best on this run with the Queens in Butcher Babies.”
The outing runs from April through June with the following New York stops: Westbury at The Space at Westbury Theater on May 9 [TIX go on sale on 3/16], and Rochester at the Montage Music Hall on May 22 [TIX go on sale on 3/16]. The jaunt also hits Sayreville, NJ at Starland Ballroom on May 20.
Butcher Babies and Nonpoint are trekking in support of their latest full-lengths, Lilith and The Poison Red, respectively.
