It's been a few years away for both Shinedown and Breaking Benjamin, which makes the fact that they're pairing up for a U.S. tour this fall all the more sweet.

The veteran rock acts are burning things up this year. Breaking Benjamin recently released their Dark Before Dawn album, which debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 album chart. The album was also voted as the Loudwire June 2015 Release of the Month by our readers and has yielded the radio hits "Failure" and "Angels Fall."

As for Shinedown, the band just revealed that Threat to Survival is the title of their new album and that it's due Sept. 18. The disc has already spawned the hit single "Cut the Cord."

The two acts will kick off their tour Oct. 16 in Wichita, Kan., with dates booked through a Nov. 24 finale in Portland, Maine. Included in the run is a stop at the Aftershock Festival in Sacramento, Calif., on Oct. 24, where both acts are among the top-billed performers.

Tickets go on sale to the general public this Friday (Aug. 14) at 10AM local time. A limited number of pre-sale tickets will be made available to members of Shinedown's and Breaking Benjamin's fan club members beginning at 10AM local time on Tuesday (Aug. 11) through 10PM local time on Thursday (Aug. 13).

Sevendust, who are promoting their Kill the Flaw album and the new single "Thank You", will open all dates in November.
