Atlanta’s mystic-metal gurus Mastodon have joined unholy forces with the “reality-based” version of Adult Swim’s über-brutal heroes Dethklok for a massive North American tour this fall. The headliners have announced their supporting acts as well as the full itinerary, so read on and decide if you’re brave enough to buy a ticket, or if you’d rather seek underground shelter… or maybe both.
Adult Swim is sponsoring the event, during which Mastodon will continue to promote their smash epic release Crack the Skye, and the amazing musicians behind the cartoon Metalocalypse – including the show’s creator, Brendon Small – will introduce tracks from their upcoming Dethalbum II. The tour also features the support of ever-trippin’ metallers High On Fire and Converge.
The coast-to-coast tour will cover 34 venues in the US and Canada, kicking off in Portland, Oregon on October 2nd and finishing up in LA mid-November. Ticket pre-sales begin today, with general sales beginning Friday morning. Head over to the Adult Swim site and find out if the evil hordes will be descending on your unwary burg… and trust me, you’re so not ready for this one.
