Despite the mass of awesome festivals and tours that grace the soil of the United States, Canada annually hosts one of the year's most must-see summer festivals in Heavy MTL. Situated in Montreal, this year's Heavy MTL fest boasts some awesome acts, but the Canadian fest is now bringing the heaviness to the U.S.

No, it's not headed down to Mexico. The U.S. is actually south of the boarder for Canada! We know … mind-blowing, isn't it? The Heavy MTL South of the Boarder tour is set to feature All Shall Perish, Oceano, Within the Ruins, Obey the Brave, Reflections + Betrayal. The short tour will begin in Tucson, Ariz. on July 30, make its way north all the way to Montreal just in time for Heavy MTL and finish off on Aug. 17 in Colorado Springs, Colo.

This year's Heavy MTL features a pants-tightening lineup featuring Avenged Sevenfold, Rob Zombie, Megadeth, Children of Bodom, Mastodon, Philip H. Anselmo & the Illegals, At the Gates, Machine Head, GWAR + many more.
