Trivium, Between the Buried and Me, Whitechapel, & Khemmis North American tour announced

Trivium have announced a fall headlining tour of North America. Dubbed the Deadmen and Dragons Tour will feature support from Between the Buried and Me, Whitechapel, and Khemmis. Trivium frontman Matt Heafy said of the tour:

Between The Buried And Me are the pioneers of mixing genres well before anyone else had. BTBAM back in 2002 — on the impeccable self-titled album — showed that they were unapologetically ready to mix elements of death metal, melodic death metal, grindcore, power metal, prog, ethereal — at times beautiful — passages of melody. Their self-titled record was a massive influence on me; I was captivated by the immense mixture of so many styles. Through their combining of a vast range of sonics and soundscapes, they created a sound that is truly their own.”

Trivium guitarist/vocalist Corey Beaulieu states:

“We’re excited to have Whitechapel be a part of this amazing bill. It’s been over 10 years since we toured together on the Shogun tour and seeing how the band has progressed over the years and added a killer melodic element to their brutal sound just makes it a perfect time to share the stage once again.”

Trivium bassist Paolo Gregoletto offered:

Khemmis is one of my favorite new bands of the last few years, and when we were putting the tour together, I heavily advocated for having them on the bill. I think it’s always a testament to a band’s sound when you have trouble pinning a label to it — doom, melodic metal, thrash, death metal. With Khemmis, it’s all in there and rocks hard. They are a 10/10 live band and did a great cover of ‘Rainbow In The Dark’, so do not miss their set!”

Tickets for the trek go on sale this Friday, July 22nd at 10:00 AM local time.
