Next summer Swedish heavy metal band HammerFall will be coming to North America for a massive tour. The band is making the journey to the United States and Canada in support of their 2016 tenth studio album, Built to Last. In a message on their website announcing the tour, the band credited the incredible response they were greeted with when last they visited this part of the world for prompting their decision to return.

The group also noted that they won’t be heading alone on their next tour. Phoenix, Ariz.-based thrash metal outfit Flotsam and Jetsam will support the Swedes for all of their North American dates.

HammerFall’s sojourn through the New World will include stops in Atlanta, Baltimore, Philadelphia, New York, Pittsburgh, Cleveland, Detroit, Minneapolis, Seattle, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Dallas, Houston, San Antonio and Anaheim, Calif.’s resplendent City National Grove of Anaheim. Tickets for what is sure to be one of the most hard-hitting musical tours of the next year go on sale Sept. 7.
