Additionally, the band are set to embark on the Blackest of the Black tour with headliner DANZIG and support acts MOONSPELL, WINDS OF PLAGUE, and SKELETONWITCH.  The five-band tour will launch a 24-show trek on October 9th in Miami Beach, Florida and play its wrap-up show on November 10th in San Francisco, California.

Tour mastermind Glenn Danzig stated: “I’m very happy to have DIMMU BORGIR sharing the stage this time, as they are one of my favorite bands and [I] always wanted them on.  Should be an incredible 20th anniversary tour.”

DIMMU BORGIR founding member/guitarist Silenoz checks in from his native land with the following:

“Let there be no secrecy around the fact that we’re really looking forward to the Blackest of The Black tour, finally joining forces with DANZIG!  To get the chance to share the stage with one of the most influential icons in metal and rock history, Glenn Danzig, is of course something we’re very proud of!  Combined with the other bands, this will be a night to remember – if you’re into dark and heavy music, that is.  We actually take it for granted that you will be there!”

DESPISED ICON Prepares for Major North American Tours

DESPISED ICON continues their non-stop touring in support of their highly acclaimed new album, The Ills of Modern Man, on August 12th alongside DARKEST HOUR, JOB FOR A COWBOY, A LIFE ONCE LOST and THE FACELESS.

This trek leads them directly into another U.S. tour with labelmates SUICIDE SILENCE and WINDS OF PLAGUE, which kicks off on Sept. 2nd and runs through Sept. 26th. Check below for the complete tour routing.

Alex Erian (vocals) states: “Our last U.S. run with THE RED CHORD, THROUGH THE EYES OF THE DEAD, ALL SMALL PENIS and SEE YOU NEXT TUESDAY was probably our favourite tour ever. Cheers again to all the bands and to everyone that showed up, hung out and made that tour so memorable for us. We released our new record during that tour so I just wanted to say thanks to those of you who picked it up and showed interest in our new shit. Looks like we won’t be spending much time at home over the next few months because we have two amazing tours lined up. We’ll be hitting mostly cities we haven’t played this year. See you on the road.”
