Rock fans better buckle up and get their earplugs ready because two of music’s hardest-hitting groups are set to hit the road together this summer. Announced on Monday afternoon, Skillet and Sevendust will embark on an 18-date North American tour this summer under the banner, “Victorious War Tour.”

The run of late-summer performances will begin on Aug. 11 in Memphis, Tennessee (Skillet’s hometown) and continues throughout the month and into the next before wrapping on Sept. 7 in Tulsa, Oklahoma. The co-headlining tour will see the two popular rock bands, in addition to Pop Evil and Devour the Day, hitting a mix of venues in major and mid-sized cities throughout the midwest and along the western U.S. including the Minglewood Hall in Memphis, Tennessee; Virginia Credit Union LIVE at Richmond Raceway in Richmond, Virginia; Showbox SoDo in Seattle, Washington; and The Wiltern in Los Angeles, California, just to name a few. Sevendust will be on hand for every show on the tour, with exception of the Sept. 7 performance at the Brady Theater in Tulsa. Fans can reference the schedule below for the detailed listing of dates, cities, and venues along the tour route.

Skillet, the veteran Christian hard rock band from Tennessee, hasn't released a new album since 2017 when Unleashed Beyond, the expanded edition of their 2016 Unleashed LP, arrived on Atlantic Records. More recently, the band shared their new music video for “Brave,” one of the songs featured on Unleashed Beyond. Fans can check out the video above to watch it in full.

As for Sevendust, they celebrated the release of their twelfth studio album last spring with All I See Is War, which arrived via Rise Records and would go on to peak at No. 28 on the Billboard 200 Album Sales Chart in the U.S. The band spent much of this winter on tour across the country in continued promotion of the album.
