On the heels of the recently released 'Symmetry in Black,' NOLA sludgemeisters Crowbar will be embarking on a September North American headlining tour.

Also on the bill are Revocation, Havok, Fit for an Autopsy and Armed for the Apocalypse.

The trek embarks on Sept. 11 in Birmingham, Ala., and includes a Sept. 20 Chicago date.

In a recent interview with 'Loudwire Nights' host Full Metal Jackie, Crowbar frontman Kirk Windstein talked about his decision to quit his other bands and focus exclusively on Crowbar.

"Crowbar has always been my vision and, you know, my baby, so to speak," Windstein says. "So, I made a decision to focus on Crowbar 100 percent. I mean this is ... the tenth album, the 25th anniversary of the band and it just felt like, from here on out, I wanted to simplify my life and just have control of every aspect of my life, business wise: how long I tour, where I tour, when I tour, what not; just kind of oversee the whole Crowbar thing."

When the tour launches, Revocation will most likely be playing some new music.

It recently announced completing the band's fifth album, 'Deathless,' with a release date slated for fall.
