Headlined by rising metal act Five Finger Death Punch , the summer tour contains 25 dates, including the Prudential Center in Newark, N.J.; a finale show at Los Angeles's Hollywood Palladium; and several stops in Texas.
Lending support are Killswitch Engage, Emmure, Battlecross, Pop Evil, God Forbid and Trivium. Trespass launches its invasion on July 1 at Broomfield, Colo.'s 1stBank Center.
