"Myself, and the rest of the guys in Dirge Within are very happy to announce Frankie Harchut (ex-The Doomsday Catalyst) as our new drummer! I have known Frankie for about 10 years, and performed alongside him in previous bands. So I know his talent as a musician, and performer firsthand. Even though Jimmy will be missed, I couldn't think of anyone better to fill the void than this guy. He is a perfect fit with the DW both in talent, and personality. We are stoked to see what the future brings, and can't wait to get back out on the road, and tear shit up with Frankie on the skins! His first show as a member of Dirge Within will be May 15th at Austin’s in Libertyville, IL. with Lacuna Coil. So come on out, and welcome Frankie to the party!"

I want to thank all the fans who supported the band over the years as well as all the new fans who are just hearing of Dirge Within, You are all true fans and it was a great feeling that you dug our music, Thank you again. I'd also like to thank Scott from E1 Entertainment, Justin and Darren from 5 B Artist Management and my friends in the band, Jerms, Shaun, Matt and James. You guys are my brothers. I wish nothing but success and happiness for Dirge Within. Good luck and take care all, and cheers! Fucking Metal!"

Whitechapel will spend this fall bringing their energetic live show to fans across the US with metal heavy weights, Trivium, on their headlining tour. The band has been opening the festivities on this summer’s Rockstar Energy Mayhem fest as the opening act on the Hot Topic stage alongside label mates Behemoth, Cannibal Corpse, and more.
Whitechapel comments: "Mayhem is going amazing so far, we couldn't have asked for a better line up of bands to be touring with and better crowd responses. Fans are going off across the U.S. in every city and we are loving it. It's definitely the best tour we have ever done and are going to be super bummed when it's over!
When we got the offer for these dates with Trivium we were really excited. We've been hanging out with the Trivium dudes on Mayhem and have been having a blast, so naturally the good times will continue on with this upcoming tour. It's a perfect opportunity for us to deliver the same pummeling live show we gave these fans at Mayhem in a smaller more intimate club setting."

Trivium has announced an upcoming North American tour titled "Into the Mouth of Hell We Tour." Supporting acts will include Whitechapel, Darkest Hour, and Dirge Within.
Trivium’s Matt Heafy has this to comment about the tour: “North American headline tour... we meet again. It's been far too long since we've toured North America as a headliner and we're back with a vengeance. It's our time to come in for the final waves of 'Shogun' touring and party with our friends in the USA and Canada. Our live show, without a doubt in my mind, is now the strongest it has ever been; our sets are more diverse, tighter than ever and we've got some of the sickest current metal bands out with us to bring you one hell of a tour. This very well could be the last one for a while, so let's do this in style... we'll see you soon."
