DAMAGEPLAN and SHADOWS FALL are set to embark on a massive co-headlining U.S. tour with this fall. The trek, set to begin on October 27th running through December 9th, covers major markets and will see both SHADOWS FALL and DAMAGEPLAN swapping the closing spot each night, which will also feature THE HAUNTED in the support slot. This highly anticipated tour is SHADOWS FALL’s first nationwide run in support of their critically acclaimed new album, The War Within, set for a September 21st release.
SHADOWS FALL’s Brian Fair (vocals) commented on the tour, “We are very excited to be a part of this tour. I have been a huge fan of both Dime and Vinnie’s playing for years and it will be an honor to share the stage with them. After watching the old PANTERA home videos, I know that both my liver and my sanity are in for a brutal time! I can’t wait. Bottoms up!"
Jon Donais (guitars) added, “I can’t wait to hit the road this fall. Not only do we get to share the stage with some great bands but I get to tour with a guitarist who has had a huge influence on my playing (Dimebag). Hopefully my liver survives this tour because it’s going to be a hell of a run. See everyone on tour.”
DAMAGEPLAN’s Vinnie Paul (drums) had this to say, “It’s time for more devastation from DAMAGEPLAN. I hate being at home and this tour is long overdue. The horses are now reved, so look out. SHADOWS FALL is without a doubt one of the top metal bands out there today and I know this bill is going to kill from top to bottom. See ya there.”
Tour dates to follow soon.
