Stacked lineup alert! Suicide Silence and Whitechapel are co-headlining the “Straight Outta Hell” tour! Deathcore heavyweights Carnifex, Despised Icon, and Oceano round out the lineup on what is sure to be one of the best tours of the Fall. Dates and details will be revealed soon, as the tour will happen this September/October. In the meantime, here is a statement from Suicide Silence guitarist Mark Heylmun:
“Finally after more than a decade this tour of tours is coming to a city near you! Lube up those ear holes because Suicide Silence and Whitechapel believe it or not have NEVER toured together in the United States. Time for Friday night, every night!! Bring your energy we’ll bring ours and together we will make memories on BlackCraft’s ‘The Straight Out of Hell Tour’ this Sept-Oct. We got Despised Icon on some nights and we have Carnifex and Oceano along for the ride as well.”
