Asking Alexandria, As I Lay Dying, Suicide Silence + More Reveal Dates for 2012 Outbreak Tour
Asking Alexandria are ready to take their turn in the spotlight as the UK metalcore act will head up the 2012 Monster Energy Outbreak Tour. As previously reported, As I Lay Dying, Suicide Silence, Memphis May Fire, and Attila will join the band on the North American trek and now the full itinerary has been revealed.
The trek launches Nov. 16 in Edmonton, Canada, and continues on its month-long journey winding down Dec. 16 in Tampa, Fla. Asking Alexandria guitarist Ben Bruce stated, "America, we are back, we are excited, we are ready and we are f---ing headlining! This is our biggest headlining tour ever and we are bringing with us, the biggest, heaviest and best bands that rock has to offer."
The guitarist went on to add, "This Monster Energy Outbreak Tour is going to be f---ing insane, more so especially due to the fact that this is not only going to be our last tour of the year and our last tour in America for quite awhile, but also because this is going to be the last tour on the Reckless and Relentless album cycle. We will be playing songs from Stand Up and Scream, Reckless and Relentless and a handful of brand new songs from our upcoming album. You, North America, have been chosen to hear our new songs before anyone else in the world. Let's make this a tour to f---ing remember."
Included in the run is a stop at California MetalFest VI in San Bernardino on Nov. 24
Having recently wrapped their summer aboard the Mayhem Festival, Asking Alexandria are booking some studio time in October to finalize the recording of their third album. The disc is tentatively scheduled for an early 2013 release.
