System Of A Down have announced four shows on the West Coast of America for this October.

Earlier today, we reported on the band's social media teaser campaign based around an idyllic beach scene and military imagery, which has now been revealed as the backdrop for the tour posters.

Three of the shows announced (in Phoenix, San Diego and Las Vegas) will see System Of A Down supported by At The Drive In and Skeletonwitch. However, the event at the Glen Helen Amphitheater in San Benardino, California, is a much bigger affair, with Incubus, Clutch and Pallbearer joining ATDI and Skeletonwitch.

The band have also announced they are headlining Aftershock Festival in Sacramento, California, alongside Deftones, Alice In Chains and Incubus.

More shows could be announced in due course. Keep an eye on Metal Hammer for all the latest information.

Luke Morton joined Metal Hammer as Online Editor in 2014, having previously worked as News Editor at popular (but now sadly defunct) alternative lifestyle magazine, Front. As well as helming the Metal Hammer website for the four years that followed, Luke also helped relaunch the Metal Hammer podcast in early 2018, producing, scripting and presenting the relaunched show during its early days. He also wrote regular features for the magazine, including a 2018 cover feature for his very favourite band in the world, Slipknot, discussing their turbulent 2008 album, All Hope Is Gone.
