Volbeat, Killswitch Engage Announce 2016 Tour


Story by Anne Erickson

Volbeat and Killswitch Engage are hitting the road together this summer

Volbeat have announced a late summer, early fall tour through North America, and the Danish rockers’ trek will set off with their gig opening for Metallica at Rise Above Fest in Minneapolis. Killswitch Engage and Black Wizard are also on the lineup.

Festival stops on the tour include Heavy MTL in Montreal, Rock Allegiance Festival in Philadelphia and High Elevation Fest in Denver.

Fans purchasing tickets for the Volbeat headline dates will also score a copy of the recently released album, Seal the Deal & Let’s Boogie, with a choice of digital download or CD, plus postage. An option to give a free copy will be included for those who already have purchased the album.

Pre-sales begin tomorrow at 10 a.m. local time at volbeat.dk.
