Randy Blytheinimitable leader of LAMB OF GODadded, “It was great to hit the road on an amazing tour last summer with MEGADETH, TRIVIUM and RACE HATE so we thought we’d do it again! We look forward to visiting new cities with MEGADETH, TRIVIUM and IN FIREthat we are happy to have more for stage 2!”

TRIVIUMit’s Matthew Heavy added: “‘The Metal Tour of the Year’ was one of the strongest and most incredible metal tours of all time – its namesake is only accurate. How do you track this? By doing it again – even bigger, even better, and playing it wherever it didn’t in the first leg. ‘The Metal Tour of the Year’ – let’s do this.”

IN FIRE singer Anders Friden said: “We are delighted to finally be able to join our dear friends in MEGADETH, LAMB OF GOD and TRIVIUM on this year “Metal Tour of the Year”! We look forward to being back on the road in America and seeing you all. Do not miss this visit; it’s a juggernaut.”
