After weeks and weeks of rumors, the lineup for the 2018 installment of The Summer Slaughter tour is finally here! Announced today, the tour will feature headliners Between The Buried And Me, who will be releasing Automata II in July. This is the second part of their Automata double album; the first part was released back in March. Joining them on this tour are Born Of Osiris, Veil of Maya, Erra, The Agony Scene, Allegaeon, Terror Universal, Soreption and Entheos.
The tour kicks off on July 13, and it will include stops inside Starland Ballroom on July 20, Ogden Theatre on Aug. 5, The Novo on Aug. 11, and Grove of Anaheim on Aug. 12. The entire tour routing can be viewed below. Tickets will go on sale to the general public this Friday (May 25) at 10 a.m. local time.
Between The Buried And Me aren't the only ones coming out with new music this year. Born Of Osiris recently finished working on the follow up to their 2015 album Soul Sphere. More information on that record will be revealed in the near future. In July, The Agony Scene will release their first album in 11 years with Tormentor.
