When last we mentioned this year’s edition of the SUMMER SLAUGHTER tour, we had the final line-up of bands but no dates or locations other than L.A. and NYC. Today, the initial schedule was announced, although more dates will be added. As a reminder, here’s the diverse group of bands who will be appearing on the tour:

The Dillinger Escape Plan
Animals As Leaders
Norma Jean
Cattle Decapitation
The Ocean
Rings of Saturn
Thy Art Is Murder

VIP tickets will go on sale April 29 at 10 a.m. Pacific (1 p.m. Eastern) and general admission tix will go on sale May 2 at the same time. For more details, go to this location. Now, here’s the schedule as it current stands:

I would just like to note that for the first time since this annual event started, the list doesn’t include Seattle, which is high-megawatt suckage. Given the geographic trajectory, they would have to add us at the beginning of the tour or at the end. We’ll see . . .


  1. This is the worst lineup ever!!!!!!

  2. I am stoked to see 6 of those bands and would be totally happy to see the other 4. That’s a pretty fucking good line up right there even if I am seeing Dillinger on the 19th. The Ocean’s always a blast live to boot!

  3. the Kansas City area is getting zero love from the the big metal tours this summer. seriously, who did we piss off?

  4. Stoked to see Thy Art Is Murder are on the bill, awesome band!!!
