Five Finger Death Punch, Killswitch Engage to Lead Trespass America Festival
Five Finger Death Punch Keeping 'Creative Muscle' Sharp on Tour

A new metal festival will be throwing down the gauntlet this summer.

Trespass America, a co-production with the UK-based Metal Hammer magazine, will gather seven bands for a 25-date U.S. tour this summer, with more shows to be announced.

The tour will include Battlecross, God Forbid, Emmure, Pop Evil, Trivium, a reunited Killswitch Engage and headliners Five Finger Death Punch.

"We will carry the flag into mainstream territory; we will trespass on their turf all across America," Five Finger Death Punch's Zoltan Bathory said in a release. "The combined power of Metal Hammer and all these bands enable us to make a statement, a really loud one."

Metal Hammer, which credits its iPad edition with building a domestic following, has been deeply involved with the UK scene. Beyond its own Hammerfest events, the magazine has also partnered with Bloodstock Open Air and the Download Festival.
