DevilDriver, Death Angel + More Set for ‘Bound by the Road’ 2017 Tour
DevilDriver released their seventh studio album, Trust No One, earlier this year, and will continue to support their latest slab of groove-laden extreme metal, headlining the 'Bound by the Road' tour in 2017. Joining them on the trek will be thrash icons Death Angel, Winds of Plague, The Agonist and Azreal.
With 19 dates booked and more still yet to be announced, the 'Bound by the Road' tour will launch from Santa Ana, Calif., on Feb. 8, hitting Chicago and then venturing across the border into Canada for a pair of shows in Toronto and Quebec before returning stateside. With a handful of dates along the East Coast, the jaunt will eventually hit Texas for five dates in the state, wrapping it up shortly after in Seattle, Wash. on March 5. See the full list of tour dates below.
"DevilDriver is heading out on our first headline run in over three years with a killer set list and full production AND we are bringing some heavy, bad ass bands along with us," exclaimed frontman Dez Fafara. "Get your tickets early and come out with some friends, 'cause this tour is going to be a monster banger!"
Tickets will be on sale this Friday (Dec. 16) at 10AM local time.
Death Angel will also be touring in support of a 2016 record, The Moth, as will The Agonist with their fittingly titled fifth album, Five. Winds of Plague will be touting 2013's Resistance and Azreal will be promoting Premonition, their sophomore record.
We caught up with Fafara at Ozzfest Meets Knotfest and the singer discussed the approach of their latest album, stating, "You know, I think with DevilDriver, it’s always the same thing. Let’s groove. Let’s do what we do and make sure that we keep ourselves on our own path. And when I started to hear the demos, I knew that that was true."
