Just when you thought the summer of 2012 couldn’t get any hotter in terms of metal tours that will blaze through venues during the scorching months, the temperature just skyrocketed several notches. News that Lamb of God and Dethklok from Adult Swim’s ‘Metalocalypse are co-headlining a North American tour has leaked via multiple sources.

Lambgoat reports that French metal warriors Gojira will provide direct support on the run, which kicks off on Aug. 1 in the Pacific Northwest and then winds through the U.S. and Canada before wrapping in San Francisco in mid-September. Luckily for us, tour will stop by the DeltaPlex Area in Grand Rapids on August 14. Tickets go on sale Friday, May 18, at 10am, at the DeltaPlex box office and eTix.com. Why not buy some when you're at the Rob Zombie/Megadeth show that day.

This lineup certainly makes the end of summer something to look forward to. This is one extreme metal tour self-respecting headbangers won’t want to miss.
