The summer just got a lot more rocking with the announcement of the "Kings and Queens" co-headlining bill. The trek will pair up Butcher Babies and Nonpoint on a summer run, with solid tour support from buzzy upstarts Cane Hill and punk rock outfit Sumo Cyco.

"Since our inception, we have strived to create a performance that is a full on assault to the senses. We always felt that if you pay your hard earned money to see a show, you should get just that, a show! Raw energy, passion and intensity," says Butcher Babies co-vocalist Carla Harvey, while fellow frontwoman Heidi Shepherd adds, "We are excited to bring our devout U.S. fanbase a headlining set with lots of surprises; digging deep into our new album Lilith and sprinkling in some old favorites from our last nine years as a band."

Nonpoint singer Elias Soriano comments, "The time off was fun, but it's back to the business of moving crowds. The new music we play will show where we're at and what we're looking for out of the crowds in terms of reaction. We have pulled no punches! The live show is what we're about, so expect our best on this run with the Queens in Butcher Babies."

The "Kings & Queens Tour" will get underway April 25 in Dallas with the trek heading east through the southern U.S., heading up the East Coast, then cutting back across the Midwest before wrapping June 8 in Jerome, Idaho. The full itinerary can be seen below.
