For the second straight summer, commercial metal titans Avenged Sevenfold will be on the road supporting their 2016 album The Stage

Yesterday, M. Shadows and company announced a batch of North American tour dates, most of them featuring support from Three Days Grace and Prophets of Rage. The cavalcade of hard rockers will hit arena- and amphitheater-sized venues from late July through the start of September. Tickets will go on sale March 9 at 10 a.m. local time.

The Stage dropped back in Oct. 2016 and debuted atop Billboard’s Top Rock Albums chart. Arriving with little warning and advance promotion, it was one of the hard rock world’s first “surprise releases.” 

The trek’s openers have more recent albums to promote. Prophets of Rage -- the super ground featuring members of Rage Against the Machine, Public Enemy, and Cypress Hill --  released their self-titled debut last September. And Three Days Grace just announced a new studio album called Outsider, due March 9 on RCA. They’ve got additional tour dates interwoven with the Avenged Sevenfold trip, which you can find here.
