"We couldn't be more excited to get back to the states this fall with our brothers from down under, the almighty PARKWAY DRIVE," states guitarist Andy Marsh. "Hot off the back of our recent journey to the states on the Mayhem summer festival tour, we are stoked to finally announce this fall tour.

"Straight after Mayhem we hopped across the pond to Europe to play a few massive circle pit ridden festivals; we can't wait to see what you guys have in store for us now that you've had some time to let Holy War sink in!"
