We’re admittedly fashionably late on this one but we’d never disregard posting about the most extreme tour of the year. The popular Summer Slaughter Tour is back for its eighth year (seventh consecutively), and the participating bands have been announced.
The Summer Slaughter Tour 13 will be headlined by none other than recent Sumerian Records signees and longtime mathcore gods, The Dillinger Escape Plan, with support from other beloved metal outfits such as Animals As Leaders, Norma Jean, Periphery and animal lovers, Cattle Decapitation. Dates have yet to be announced but we’ll certainly be taking Kid Rock’s advice to “get in the pit and try to love someone” on any and all dates within our vicinity.
As with each year the tour has taken place, the organizers are giving the fans the democratic opportunity to vote for which metal band will open on each of the dates. There are a lot of incredible bands on the poll this year including Last Chance To Reason, Soreption, My Bitter End, and Rings Of Saturn. You can vote for which band you’d like to see on the tour here. After the jump you can view this year’s tour poster that features each of the announced bands for 2013.
