Hate Eternal announce US summer tour dates


Holy fuck nuggets Batman, this is quite possibly the single heaviest tour we've ever announced on this blog. Seriously, when I first saw the lineup, the only words that came out of my mouth weren't even words, but a string of babbling that made me sound like I was having a heart attack, which wasn't too far off. In any case, Hate Eternal has announced a headlining North American tour with Origin, Vital Remains and Abysmal Dawn, and I think it's a safe assumption that this is pretty much going to be the heaviest tour of the whole summer. I would say the whole year, but it's happening in July and August so there's plenty of time for another tour to come around and blow our minds, but this is going to set the bar pretty effing high, that's for sure. The tour is most likely going to coincide with their new album, their first since 2008's crushing Fury and Flames. I've had the good fortune to see Hate Eternal live twice now, so I can personally vouch for their furious live shows. And the other bands aren't exactly pushovers either, so I'm getting the feeling someone's going to get hurt at one of these shows, and I mean BAD. Like a Dethklok show kind of bad. It's gonna be fucking awesome. Dates are as follows:

06/15 Emo’s – Austin, TX
06/16 Sorority House – Amarillo, TX
06/17 The Marquis Theatre – Denver, CO
06/19 The Clubhouse – Tempe, AZ
06/20 The Key Club – Hollywood, CA
06/21 Slim’s – San Francisco, CA
06/22 The Alley – Sparks, NV
06/24 Studio Seven – Seattle, WA
06/25 Rickshaw Theater – Vancouver, BC – CANADA
06/26 Lake City Bowl – Kelowna, BC – CANADA
06/27 The Distillery – Calgary, AB – CANADA
06/28 Pawn Shop – Edmonton, AB – CANADA
06/30 The Exchange – Regina, SK – CANADA
07/01 Royal Albert Arms – Winnipeg, MB – CANADA
07/02 Station 4 – St. Paul, MN
07/03 The Annex – Madison, WI
07/05 Reggie’s Rock Club – Chicago, IL
07/06 Peabody’s – Cleveland, OH
07/07 Wreck Room – Toronto, ON – CANADA
07/08 Les Foufounes Electriques – Montreal, QC – CANADA

07/10 Santo’s Party House – New York, NY
07/11 Sonar - Baltimore, MD
07/13 The Oasis – Charleston, SC
07/14 Firestone Live – Orlando, FL

Unfortunately for me there appears to be no Philly date, but I'll totally be road tripping to the Baltimore date, this is a show that can't be missed in my book. Be sure to get your tickets if this tour is coming anywhere near you. Tell us if you're going or not, or any past experiences seeing these bands in the past in the comments below. As always, stay tuned for more, and stay brutal.
