In This Moment Announce Headlining Dates Before ‘Music As A Weapon’ Tour

In This Moment (interview here) have been announced as one of the acts on the upcoming ‘Music As A Weapon’ tour, which is going to be headlined by Korn and Disturbed (interview here). In the week leading up to the festival, the band will be playing a few headlining shows with support coming from local acts. Tour dates for these headlining shows are after the jump. 

Guitarist Chris Howorth comments: “When we received the news that we were a part of the music as a weapon tour we were overwhelmed with emotion, Maria and I were literally moved to tears. Our band has been constantly clawing our way up the ladder in this business and its very hard to get on a big tour like this, getting this news is like getting the best Christmas present we could hope for. We are truly blessed and extremely excited for this huge opportunity! We have been fans of Disturbed since their first record and have always wanted to tour with them. We adore Korn (our Mayhem Festival buddies) and Sevendust are some of the coolest guys we’ve met during our travels! This is going to be an amazing kick off to our 2011 tour cycle! Eternal thanks to Monster and Disturbed for allowing us to be a part of such an epic event.”
