With a new album coming out and a tour about to kick off, Five Finger Death Punch are insanely busy right now. So, to help them out, I’m posting this article with all sorts of FFDP news so you don’t have to scramble all over the Internet trying to find it all. First of all, below is a shout-out video from Jeremy and Zoltan for YOU, the Bloody-Disgusting readers!
Back in 2005, I was lucky enough to go and check out the first ever Gigantour, the here-and-there summer festival started by Megadeth. Needless to say, for the ticket price (I think it was something like $25), I definitely got my money’s worth. Now, Megadeth has announced that they are resurrecting the tour. However, some things have changed: First of all, it’s not going to be in the summer. Rather, the tour will start towards the end of January and run through early March. Second, there apparently won’t be a full day of music. Instead, only three other bands will be joining Megadeth on stage: Motorhead, Volbeat, and Lacuna Coil. Tour dates have yet to be announced, so keep an eye on Megadeth.com.
Alternative metal band Spineshank has reunited after nearly eight years with a new album, Anger Denial Acceptance, and plans for a US tour. The new album does not have a current release date, though one should be coming pretty soon I imagine. Here are some quotes from the guys:
Guns N Roses (whatever incarnation they are now) have announced a US tour. The cities have been lined up but the dates aren’t exactly set nor are the venues. However, I’m calling it right now: this tour will be cancelled a few days after it begins. Hell, it might even be cancelled before it starts. Let me put it like this, if it makes it to Detroit, I’ll be buying my tickets at the door. What do you think? Are they going to follow through this time?
Alright all you Theory Of A Deadman fans, we’ve got a contest for you! Want to see them on their upcoming tour with 3 Doors Down and Popevil? Then look no further!

The tour runs through North American and hits 36 stops, so make sure to find your closest date and check out the show!
Anthrax and Testament will be embarking on a full US tour later this fall with Death Angel as a direct opener. The tour begins in mid-October and concludes one month later in mid-November. Anthrax will be closing out each show on the tour, which coincidentally falls almost exactly 20 years after Anthrax and Testament first toured together.
Having last toured on the Defenders Of The Faith tour with Five Finger Death Punch and Lamb of God, Dimmu Borgir are ready to come back to the UK for a very special, very intimate tour. The band will be touring with no support and will be performing two sets each night: the first set will be one of three albums played in its entirety (album chosen by the fans) and the second set will be a variety of songs. The albums that fans can choose from are 1994′s For All Tid, 1996′s Stormblast, or 1997′s Enthrone Darkness Triumphant (U.K. fans can pick their favorite on the Dimmu Borgir Facebook). Tour dates after the jump.
In what might end up being the second most evil tour this fall (the first one is here), Decapitated has announced a the 2011 Carnival Is Forever North America tour! Joining them on tour will be Decrepit Birth, Fleshgod Apocalypse, Rings Of Saturn, and The Haarp Machine. This sounds like an insanely brutal tour that might result in a few decapitations, some disembowelments, a virginity or two lost, and three C-sections. I may or may not be the one behind the C-sections…Don’t tell on me, okay?
Bloody-Disgusting is excited to announce that it is one of the sponsors for the upcoming Exhumed, Goatwhore, Cephalic Carnage, and Havok North American tour! Don’t believe me?

Judas Priest have announced, in what is sure to make metalheads around the country lose their mind, that they will be hitting the road this fall with opening support coming from Thin Lizzy and Black Label Society. The tour will be part of the Epitaph touring cycle and comes after the departure of founding member, K.K. Downing, who has been replaced by Richie Faulkner. Check out the dates after the jump and let me know if you’re going to be at the Detroit show! My only concern is that the Detroit show is after the date for the impending apocalypse. Damn you Harold Camping for ruining my metal experience!
Reunited Seattle grunge legends Soundgarden have announced the final itinerary for their upcoming summer tour. Special guests depend on the day, but it could be Coheed and Cambria, The Mars Volta, Queens of the Stone Age, Meat Puppets, or Mastodon, depending on your stop. Check after the jump for the full list.
It has just been announced that prog-metal masters Tool will be doing a short US headlining tour next Spring and the direct support will be from one of my favorite bands Opeth. The moment I heard about this, I promptly crapped my pants and threw it at my next door neighbor (she’s a bitch and deserved it anyways). Both bands have yet to issue a statement, but the press release states that the reason the tour is announced so far in advance is to build hype for upcoming albums from each artist, Opeth‘s later this year and Tool‘s in the first quarter of 2012. Check after the jump for tour dates.
