Metal heavyweights KILLSWITCH ENGAGE have revealed the special guests for their upcoming European headline tour. The UK section kicks off at Norwich’s UEA on October 14th and closes at the legendary O2 Academy Brixton in London on October 20th.
Hailing from Boston, Massachusetts, REVOCATION join the bill, bringing their brand of technical death metal. The group released their seventh album ‘The Outer Ones ‘, via Metal Blade, last September.
German metal beasts TENSIDE also join the affray. The Munich-based group have released six albums to date, including latest LP ‘Convergence ‘, and supported Trivium for three dates in Europe earlier this summer.
Following the UK trek, KILLSWITCH ENGAGE continue to steamroll across mainland Europe with REVOCATION and TENSIDE, wrapping up November 10th in Nuremberg, Germany.
