US metal heavyweights Lamb Of God and Mastodon will be teaming up for a special tour across North America that will see them celebrate two landmark albums by playing them in full. Both Lamb Of God's Ashes Of The Wake and Mastodon's Leviathan turn 20 this year, and the two bands will mark the occasion by playing both records from front to back.

Joining them for the run will be none other than Slayer legend Kerry King, who recently announced his new solo project featuring Paul Bostaph, Phil Demmel, Kyle Sanders and Mark Osegueda, as well as British metal ragers Malevolence. The tour kicks off in Grand Prairie, Texas on July 19, running through the likes of Austin, Houston, Montreal, Cleveland, Los Angeles, El Paso and more. 

For three of the dates - Reading, Cleveland and Sterling Heights - Malevolence will be replaced on the bill by metalcore heroes Unearth.
