After spending years and years of mainly playing their hometown of Ottawa with a few sporadic places around Canada, Annihilator are finally ready to melt our faces off with their first proper headline tour of the country in years. The tour will see the band playing 16 shows across 6 of the 10 provinces, starting off on the west coast in B.C in Victoria on June 13, and working their way east, finishing off on Canada Day (July 1st) in Cornwall.
At the moment, only the cities and dates the band will be playing have been announced. Check back soon for the announcement of two more cities and the venues. On top of all that, support on the tour will come from 2014 Wacken Metal Battle Worldwide winners Mutank, and Australian thrashers Mason.
