Metalcore veterans Killswitch Engage recently announced tour plans for the new year.

In January, they’ll once again hit the road for a co-headlining tour with thrash legends Anthrax under the KillThrax II banner. The 29-date North American trek will kick off on Jan. 25 at MTELUS in Montreal, Quebec and criss-cross the country before wrapping up on March 4 at State Theater in Portland, Maine.

Killswitch Engage will then head out with fellow metalcore titans Hatebreed for a handful of shows starting in late April. They will be joined by special guests Candiria and The Word Alive on select dates. Tickets for April 26 at Starland Ballroom in Sayreville, NJ  and Agora Theatre in Cleveland, Ohio on May 2 go on sale Friday, Dec. 15 at 10 a.m. local time here at AXS.com.

Earlier this year, Killswitch Engage celebrated the 15th anniversary of their sophomore LP, Alive or Just Breathing. The landmark album, released in May 2002 through Roadrunner Records,  was supported by the singles “Self Revolution,” “My Last Serenade,” and “The Element of One.”

Incarnate, the band’s most recent studio long-player, debuted at No. 6 on the Billboard 200, following its March 2016 release. The album spawned two singles: “Hate By Design” and “Cut Me Loose.”

Watch the music video for “Cut Me Loose,” from the most recent Killswitch Engage release, Incarnate, below. All confirmed tour dates are listed below, and additional shows are expected to be announced soon. For more information, visit Killswitch Engage’s official website.
