As Goatwhore wrap up their current tour supporting Swedish viking metal heroes Amon Amarth, they've already got a new set of dates to look forward too. Never off the road for very long, Goatwhore will embark on a headlining run of their own, bringing Anciients along with them.

The New Orleans-based outfit hit the East Coast and the heartland a bit on their run with Amon Amarth and this tour will gives fans on the opposite side of North America a chance to catch Goatwhore. The jaunt kicks off in San Antonio, Texas on June 9 and will works its way to the Pacific coast, traveling north into Canada. From there its eastward before descending back into the U.S. for a handful of midwestern dates, capping it off with a Huntsville, Ala. show on July 1. See the full list of stops below.

Vengeful Ascension, the seventh studio effort from Goatwhore, will arrive in the midst of the tour, hitting shelves and webstores on June 23 via Metal Blade. The title track has already been released (heard here) and frontman Ben Falgoust explained, “Each song is a representation of Goatwhore from day one until now. It really shows our evolution as a band. I don’t think that this band has reached its peak yet. I mean, I think we’re closer now than ever but we’re still growing; we’re still evolving.”

Pre-orders for Goatwhore's Vengeful Ascension can be placed at the Metal Blade webstore.

Meanwhile, the progressive extreme metal act Anciients will be touting one of last year's best metal albumsVoice of the Void, which streamed in full ahead of its release exclusively at Loudwire.
