On the heels of the highly anticipated covers album, FOR THE LIONS (in stores May 5th on E1 Music), hardcore-metal leaders HATEBREED announce a new headline U.S. summer tour entitled Decimation of the Nation, presented by Hot Topic.
The band's brutal live show, documented in last year's #1 Billboard charting DVD, LIVE DOMINANCE, is set to hit 30 cities, beginning in Rochester, NY on July 31, 2009, wrapping up on September 2, 2009.
Main support on all the dates will come from Chimaira. When asked about the tour frontman Jamey Jasta had this to say, ""It's been over a year since we've done a complete United States tour and we haven't played some of these places in ages so we're really amped to hit the road in support of For The Lions and play for all of our die-hards!"
