The band has also been confirmed on this year's Summer Slaughter Tour, alongside the likes of Dillinger Escape Plan, Cattle Decapitation and others. Dates are expected to be announced in the coming weeks.
Davidson is looking forward to the Summer Slaughter Tour this summer: "It is truly an honor to be a part of this years Summer Slaughter Festival. The lineup this year is very diverse with an emphasis on technicality and aggression, two traits that we feel embody our sound. We're very eager to play in front of massive crowds and drink massive amounts of beers with all of our buddies on this tour. Hope everyone's as stoked for this rager as we are!" More...

Ash Avildsen, founder of Summer Slaughter, comments on this year's edition of the tour: “It's year seven and I think 2013's line-up is the most exciting and diverse yet. Slaughter has never been a one dimensional experience for fans. This year is a true testament to that as we have an amazing mix of extreme music's influential icons and leaders of the new school. Let the underground unite!"
Greg Puciato (Dillinger Escape Plan vocalist) states: “We can't wait to get back on the road! We're launching a US tour in the spring, hitting Europe for some festivals and club shows, and then hitting several more cities with Summer Slaughter all summer long. We are absolutely amped. After being holed up in the studio for such a long time giving birth to One of Us is the Killer, we are all pent up and ready to share material new and old with our supporters doing what we love to do the most. Can't wait to see and either kiss or rip off each and every one of your faces on the road with Summer Slaughter and year round, everywhere.”

The Dillinger Escape Plan also commented on the compilation:

He work very had to get our music out to all you guys and now is your chance to show your appreciation.
"Here is a link to a compilation featuring songs by us and a bunch of other bad ass Relapse artists. All proceeds from the download of this compilation will go towards a college fund for his daughter Katie, a scholar and an athlete with a bright future ahead of her. All of the bands on this compilation have waived their royalties and Relapse is passing through all proceeds from the sale of the comp directly to Pat’s wife and daughter.
