Tribulation, the Swedish “death metal goths who love Lord Byron and f*** with metal’s macho imagery” (Noisey), have announced a Fall tour of North America, the band’s first visit since the release of their critically-revered album, Down Below.

The trek, which kicks off on Sept. 14 in Montreal, features a mix of headlining performances as well as a number of co-headlining dates with Pallbearer. Tribulation, collectively, said of the upcoming outing: “We are at last heading back over the Atlantic Ocean to the New World, this time to its northerly part that is the great North America. How we’ve waited! Along for the ride this time we have the mighty and the very heavy Pallbearer to close each evening, deepening the Dionysian spirit that we, hopefully, have managed to spark in you. Montreal, Kansas City, Los Angeles, New Orleans and the East Coast will see us playing without Pallbearer with support acts yet to be announced and with us closing each night. We urge you to join us in these nocturnal festivities where both bands will be playing long sets. The tickets go on sale on Friday, get yours while you can!”

Pallbearer added, “After a long period of constant touring behind Heartless, it’s almost time for us to settle into the cold season and begin crafting our next musical endeavor. But before that, we are heading out once more across North America to bring this chapter to its conclusion. We look forward to stretching out our sets each night on this double bill with Tribulation, revisiting some songs from our past and adding extra layers to newer material.”
