Fresh from a main stage set at this year's Download Festival, Black Stone Cherry have announced a return to European stages. The band have scheduled an 18-date  tour for later in the year, kicking off in Berlin on October 29. The trek will arrive in the UK for a show at Cardiff's Utilita Arena on November 17, and wrap up at London's Wembley Arena on November 23.

Support at the mainland European dates will come from Ayron Jones, while Skillet complete the UK lineup.

"Our beloved Cherry Heads in Europe, we have seen your comments and read all of your messages which have kept us feelin' fuzzy since the last time we saw you," say the band. "With that said, it’s been too damn long and we can’t wait to come back for a full headline tour in November joined by our good buddies Ayron Jones and Skillet! We look forward to seeing your faces and hearing your voices!" 

Presale tickets for the new shows go on sale today (Tuesday) at 10am local, with the general sale kicking off at the same time tomorrow. 

Black Stone Chery are currently on tour in Europe, and return home for a long run of US dates from July to September, including a series of shows with Clutch and Rival Sons on their Two Headed Tour. Full dates below.

Two weeks ago, Black Stone Cherry released a live video for When The Pain Comes, originally a single from last year's Screamin' At The Sky album. The video was filmed on the band's recent US tour with ZZ Top and Lynyrd Skynyrd.
