Mikael Stanne (vocals) describes his excitement over the upcoming tour: “We are really excited to come back to the states. This tour with Killswitch Engage and The Devil Wears Prada will be the perfect way to kick off this new album of ours. We are looking forward to premiering the new material in front of the many new and uninitiated, as well as our devoted and awesome fans. This will be the start of a long string of tours that we will be doing for this album. We feel that these new songs are some of the strongest material that we’ve ever written and we are dying to tour the hell out this album! See you in the front row.”
