Avenged Sevenfold have announced a headline tour of North America for this summer.

They’ll head out on the road under the End Of The World tour banner – and they’ll be joined by Prophets Of Rage and Three Days Grace.

Avenged frontman M Shadows says: “We’re proud to tour with Prophets Of Rage and Three Days Grace this summer across America. We see this tour as an opportunity to create an event with special bands and different generations of rock fans.

“From the moment you arrive at the venue until the last note is played, we’re hoping to give you the time of your life.”

Prophets Of Rage guitarist Tom Morello adds: “Awful pop dominating the airwaves? Political chaos across the land? Wanna fight back? Well, the End Of The World tour is here.

“Prophets Of Rage and Avenged Sevenfold have always played absolutely uncompromising music. If you want your summer loud, raw and fearless we’ll see you in the pit.”

Tickets will go on general sale from Friday, March 9, at 10am local time and are part of Live Nation’s Ticket To Rock programme which offers bundles to shows including Five Finger Death Punch and Breaking Benjamin and Rob Zombie and Marilyn Manson.

Avenged Sevenfold are currently on tour with Bullet For My Valentine and Breaking Benjamin and will return to Europe in the coming months, which will include a headline set at the UK’s Download festival.
