Back in August, Polish death metallers Behemoth and Swedish melodeath masters Arch Enemy were forced to postpone their upcoming North American tour, resulting in opener Carcass dropping off the gig. However, the bands have now announced the rescheduled dates, and while losing Carcass was a bummer, the bands have a pretty weighty replacement.

Opening up for the ‘North American Siege Tour’ will be British grindcore revolutionaries Napalm Death and Pacific Northwestern goth metallers Unto Others. The trek kicks off in Arizona, loops through the nation, and ends in Los Angeles. Which band will close the show which night remains to be determined, but hey, at least some fans will be able to go home early.

“To say that we are dying to return on the road would be an understatement!” says Behemoth frontman Adam “Nergal” Darski. “In fact, we’ve never been more hungry to reunite with our legions…not only to bring you one of the hottest EXTREME METAL touring line-ups in a long time, but also to bring you NEW Behemoth music! Rejoice!!!”

“I honestly couldn’t be more excited about having Arch Enemy join forces with Behemoth, Napalm Death and Unto Others for a run of dates through North America in 2022!” says Arch Enemy guitarist Michael Amott. “A killer package of quality mayhem right there – can’t fckn wait!”
