The self-proclaimed “most extreme tour of the year” has just announced its official lineup for this summer and it is freaking metal. Summer Slaughter 2015 will be the tour’s ninth run since it became an annual event. Organizers have announced the tour will be headlined by Arch Enemy with additional performances from such heavyweights within the death metal scene as Born of Osiris, Veil of Maya, The Acacia Strain and Obscura.

The tour will kick off on July 28 at the The Summit Music Hall in Denver and run through until August 23 at The Regency Ballroom in San Francisco. More dates will be added soon, as well as additional performers. Check below for an up-to-date list of bands and tour stops.
