LAMB OF GOD, GOJIRA, AND DETHKLOK TO TOUR NORTH AMERICA

Dethklok! You back! We think you leave for good!

Much to the delight of Metalocalypse fans everywhere, Brendan Small and his troupe of rock and metal legends (Bryan Beller, Mike Keneally, and Testament’s own Gene Hoglan) will co-headline a North American tour with Lamb Of God this summer with French tech death superstars Gojira as support. The news about the upcoming tour comes just three weeks after Metalocalypse made its triumphant (and gory) return to the Adult Swim lineup, so I can only imagine how excited fans are that we — I mean they — will get to see Dethklok in concert as well.

More exciting still is Gojira’s addition to the tour. I mean, they haven’t been to the United States in three years, and fans are already clamoring for their fifth studio album L’Enfant_Sauvage. It seems like just yesterday (because it was only four months ago) that Lamb Of God toured the States in support of Resolution, but Gojira and Dethklok, who have gigged sporadically since 2009, have given us much more opportunity to miss them.

Tickets for the upcoming tour go on sale this Friday, and since the bands will hit damned near every major city in the northern half of the continent (sorry, Mexico!), you’ve got no excuse not to go.
