Death metal titans The Black Dahlia Murder and Whitechapel have announced a North American co-headlining tour set for this summer, on which each act will play one of their albums in full. The Black Dahlia Murder will perform their latest studio long-player, Nightbringers, from front to back while Whitechapel will celebrate the tenth anniversary of This Is Exile.
The massive cross-country trek will kick off on June 8 at House of Blues in Chicago, Ill. and run through July 13, wrapping at Cabooze in Minneapolis, Minn. Along the way, the tour will stop at venues like Agora Theater in Cleveland, Ohio (June 9), Trocodero Theatre in Philadelphia, Pa. (June 10), The NorVa in Norfolk, Va. (June 19), Ogden Theater in Denver, Colo. (July 10), The Truman in Kansas City, Mont. (July 11) and more.
Nightbringers, The Black Dahlia Murder’s eighth and latest album, emerged back in October and landed at No. 3 on Billboard’s Top Hard Rock Albums chart. The 11-track collection made Metal Blade Records’ history, becoming the label’s best-selling direct-to-consumer pre-order.
This Is Exile, Whitechapel’s sophomore LP, peaked at No. 2 on Billboard’s Heatseekers Albums chart following its July 2008 release on Metal Blade Records. The album spawned the singles “This Is Exile,” “Possession” and “Eternal Refuge.” Whitechapel and Metal Blade Records will further commemorate the album’s 10th anniversary with a special vinyl reissue, set for release on May 25. In addition, the band will have a tour exclusive edition available for fans on the road.
