Joe Elliott says, “We’re thrilled to be able to take this tour to cities we didn’t play in 2016. The demand for us to return, or rather extend the tour was phenomenal! There’s a great buzz around the band right now and we’re loving the fact that we can do this with the latest album being so well received.”

The tour also marks the first time in over five years that Poison will tour with all original members. Frontman Bret Michaels says, “I could not be more excited. I know all of us will give one thousand percent on stage and we are looking forward to performing our hits together.

Killswitch Engage, Anthrax Announce KillThrax II Tour

As with the inaugural KillThrax tour, Killswitch Engage and Anthrax will rotate the show’s closing slot on KillThrax II.

Published

on

Evil Dead II. Dawn Of The Dead. The Godfather: Part 2. The Empire Strikes Back. All sequels that are better than the original. Add KillThrax II to that list. Back by popular demand, Killthrax is coming at ya again my friends.” — Scott Ian, Anthrax

What do you do when you’ve co-headlined one of the hottest metal touring packages of 2017? Well, like any rock band that cares about its fans, you do it again, but you take it to the places that missed out the first time. And that’s exactly what metalcore masterminds Killswitch Engage and legendary thrash/metal masters Anthrax are announcing today — KillThrax II, a 29-city tour of North America presented by SiriusXM that kicks off January 25 in Montreal, Canada and will zig-zag across the continent to wind up in Portland, ME on March 4.

Havok will serve as the opening act for the entire tour. Confirmed dates are below.

Said Anthrax’s Frank Bello, “After playing so many amazing shows last year with our friends Killswitch Engage, I’m psyched for round two of KillThrax, and we’re adding Havok to the heaviness!” Added Charlie Benante, “The shows were great, the audiences were great, and we all felt great about the whole thing, so why not do it again?”

“We are looking forward to the next leg of the ‘KillThrax’ tour,” said KsE singer Jesse Leach. “We had a blast on the first one and we enjoyed sharing the stage with the humble legends Anthrax! There is such a synergy between the two bands and a certain unity that is infectious, so it was a no brainer to put this package back together and hit the road. It’s an honor and we are excited for these shows, the fans, and the good times! KillThrax is gearing up for round two, so let’s keep the party rolling!”

As with the inaugural KillThrax tour, Killswitch Engage and Anthrax will rotate the show’s closing slot on KillThrax II. Fans can also expect a night of high energy, musical ferocity and sheer intensity, and what one reviewer called “an incredible night of live music with heavy hitters that provided hours of escape into metal bliss.”

Powerman 5000 tour dates:

Oct. 20 – Portland, OR – Hawthorne Theater
Oct. 22 – Seattle, WA – El Corozon
Oct. 24 – Sacramento, CA – Holy Diver
Oct. 26 – Los Angeles, CA – Whisky A Go Go
Oct. 28 – San Diego, CA – Brick By Brick

New Wave will be released on October 27 via Pavement Entertainment. The effort is Powerman 5000’s eleventh official release since forming in 1992 and continues the strides and success, from their platinum-selling album Tonight The Stars Revolt! to their most recent chart-topping single in 2014, “How To Be A Human.”

Powerman 5000 vocalist Spider One stated about the new single, “Sid Vicious In A Dress”: “I suppose at its simplest it’s a twisted love song, but really it’s about loving what hurts you, what is bad for you. Staying when you should run. Over the years, Sid Vicious has become the poster child for chaos and self-destruction. I just took that and put it in the form of a beautiful girl. The title of the song kind of says it all.”

Regarding the overall sound of the follow-up to 2014’s Builders Of The Future, Spider One said: “We went a bit dirtier on this one. Ripped it up more than the last couple of records. One of the goals was to recreate the noise of the live show. Keep in the chaos.”

On the topic of the new album title, Spider said: “New Wave? Are we a new wave band? Well, I would say that we have always had more in common with Devo than Dio.”
