Parkway Drive and Killswitch Engage are teaming up for a massive 2019 tour. The two metal bands announced their Collapse The World Tour on Wednesday via press release; fans can get tickets to this rip-roaring concert tour starting Dec. 19 here at AXS.

"After having the pleasure of destroying stages all over Australia with the Parkway guys just over a month ago, we couldn't be more stoked to share the stage with them once again, this time in the States," Killswitch Engage frontman Jesse Leach said in the press release, which should clue music fans into what kind of a tour they can expect next spring.

Parkway Drive is coming off their second win for Best Hard Rock/Heavy Metal Album at the 2018 ARIA Awards, the Australian equivalent of the Grammy Awards. They earned the award for their most recent record Reverence, which they released in May; you can listen to the album's latest single "Prey" by playing the video above. It's loud, intense, and the lyrics don't mince words as the band roars about ax-grinding and sacrifice.

That makes them a great match for Massachusetts-based Killswitch Engage, who will be releasing their next album in 2019. That means the Collapse The World Tour will be the first time fans can hear their newest music live. With 26 concerts running from April 18 to May 19, both bands will be bringing fresh songs and a tremendous amount of energy to audiences around the country. Neither act pulls any punches, and now they'll be tearing things up together in what's certain to be one of the loudest and wildest tours of the year.
