As I’m running around like a chicken without a head at the moment based on the incredibly high pile of to do items, I am keeping this one straight and to the point. Check out the recent tour announcement by Tribulation.

The Press Release:
Tribulation Return To North America For Headlining Tour; Announce Re-Issue of Debut Album “The Horror”; Launch Contest for Autographed Snare Drum

After more than a year of touring relentlessly throughout Europe and North America on the strength of their latest LP, The Children of the Night, Tribulation are proud to return to the US and Canada for the band’s first ever headlining tour in the region. Joining them will be Youth Code and Horrendous, as well as Cauldron on select dates (Canada). Speaking on the upcoming trek in North America, the band comments:

“Though we are approaching it, we haven’t quite reached the end of the road for ‘The Children of the Night’ world tour. We know many of you have been waiting for it, so we are now very happy to announce that we’ll make one final tour through North America, this time as a headliner! It’s going to be a pleasure to be able to give you a full set in our very own way. See you this fall!”

In anticipation of their North American tour, Tribulation have announced a contest to win an autographed drum snare from the band. See the video below for details. The contest runs until August 12th (US entrants only).

PiercingMetal Thoughts: Okay so like I said, right to the point with this one. Simply put “see this band, support this tour, buy this album”. Easy right? I’m keeping it like this because Tribulation has been one of the most awesome of opening acts that I have seen in recent memory and their most recent album “The Children Of The Night” is high on every scribes must listen to list. Very solid band live and you fans can still get in on supporting them early. Just think of how impressed your other Metalhead friends will be at that status  What do you folks who have been supporting them already think about this tour news? Let me know in the comments section below.
