Next week, Chicago metalcore outfit Veil of Maya kick off their U.S. tour supporting Animals As Leaders. Like many treks, there will always be a couple holes in the itinerary, whether it's a typical Monday night off or a rare occurrence of a free Thursday night. The band decided to take it upon themselves to fill a few of those empty dates with some special headlining shows, which were announced yesterday.

The outfit will have headlining shows in Michigan (Detroit's Shelter on May 10), Georgia (Atlanta's Masquerade on May 15), South Carolina (Spartanburg's Ground Zero on May 17), and Georgia (Augusta's The Iron Heights on May 22). Supporting acts for each show will be release soon. Tickets for these performances are on sale right now.

Their upcoming trek with Animals As Leaders will include stops in Colorado (Boulder's Fox Theatre on May 3), New Jersey (Sayreville's Starland Ballroom on May 25), and Missouri (St. Louis' The Ready Room on May 30).

Veil of Maya are on the road supporting their latest studio album Matriarch, which peaked at number two on the Hard Rock Albums chart, number five on the Top Rock Albums chart, and number three on the Independent Albums chart.
