Additional Dates Announced For Scion A/V Presents High On Fire

The previously announced Scion A/V presented High On Fire tour, which sees the California power trio joined by Norwegian hard rock crew Kvelertak, has added an additional twelve dates to the incendiary extravaganza with newly announced stops in Boston, Toronto, Chicago and San Francisco amongst others.

As part of the Scion A/V-sponsored tour, High On Fire will release a new single titled "Slave The Hive" on October 16, marking the first new music from the California metal champions since the spring 2012 release of De Vermis Mysteriis. A limited edition 7-inch will be available at all tour dates with a video for the song to be released simultaneously.

Norwegian thrash-metal sextet Kvelertak, who have had one of 2013's buzziest hard rock releases with the Kurt Ballou (Converge) produced album Meir, will open all dates. Doomriders (Nov. 10 to 23), Pack of Wolves (Nov. 25-27) and Windhand (Nov. 29 to Dec. 12) will be featured as the evening opener on different legs of the tour.

A Twitter sweepstakes will be ongoing throughout the tour, with two pairs being given away per show.

High On Fire just released the first official live recordings of its career with the two volume set Spitting Fire Live, which has been hailed as "high-volume intensity" by the Austin Chronicle, "hot as the infernos" by Pitchfork and a "documentation of the band's undiminished ferocity onstage" by the SF Weekly. Recorded over a two evening NYC headlining stint at both NYC's Bowery Ballroom and Brooklyn's Music Hall of Williamsburg last winter, Spitting Fire Live showcases High On Fire at its incendiary best, containing songs from each of the band's critically acclaimed studio albums including last year's celebrated De Vermis Mysteriis.
