Summer Slaughter Tour 2013 Dates Announced

Summer Slaughter 2013

This year’s iteration of The Summer Slaughter Tour — which features headliners The Dillinger Escape Plan and support from Periphery, Animals as Leaders, Norma Jean, Cattle Decapitation, The Ocean, Revocation, Aeon, Rings of Saturn, and Thy Art Is Murder — is likely the most exciting tour I’ll have a shot at seeing in 2013. Sure, the death metal elitists and deathcore fanboys aren’t all too stoked on this year’s iteration of the annual trek, but I find it impossible to NOT get excited over a bulk of this lineup.

What makes this tour so excellent from my perspective is that they always seem to hit the appropriate secondary markets for me. Knoxville, Louisville, Cincinnati, or Columbus tend to be hit by Summer Slaughter. Sure enough, while not incredibly extensive yet (dates are still waiting to be announced) the tour at least manages to pass through the midwest/southeast. Dates are as follows:
