Slipknot, Lamb of God, Bullet For My Valentine and Motionless In White have just announced a hefty North American run together for later this year dubbed “This Summer’s The Last Stand Tour.”
The excursion fires off at the end of July in West Palm Beach, FL and storms through numerous major markets, including Wantagh, NY at the Nikon at Jones Beach Theater on August 1, before concluding in September in Texas. Tickets go on sale to the public starting this weekend (1/30 + 1/31). Pre-sales begin Wed (1/28), Facebook pre-sale code is “SUMMERINHELL” – A complete list of dates can be found after the break.
Slipknot (who we recently caught live at the reportedly soon-to-be-defunct Izod Center) are touring in support of their well received fifth studio album, .5: The Gray Chapter, which they unleashed last year on Roadrunner.
Lamb of God have big plans in 2015, as leadman Randy Blythe has stated that not only will he release a new book this summer but the band are pushing to drop a new LP this year as well.
Bullet For My Valentine are hitting the studio next month with famed British producer Colin Richardson to start work on their fifth studio effort, the follow-up to 2013’s Temper Temper.
Motionless In White (who we also caught live not too long ago) will be in NYC before their summer trip with Knot for their previously announced headline show at Irving Plaza on March 28 with For Today, New Years Day and Ice Nine Kills (tix on sale). The band’s latest release, Reincarnate, is out now on Fearless Records.
