A new eCard is online to spread the word about Prosthetic Records label-mates Himsa and The Acacia Strain hitting the road for Darkest Hour's "Undoing Ruin 2006 Tour" alongside A Life Once Lost and Dead To Fall. Spanning 38 dates across the United States, the tour will begin February 17.

Himsa will embark on several headlining shows along the way to support the Feb. 7 release of Hail Horror before meeting up with the "Undoing Ruin" lineup in Latham, NY to kick the tour off. Hail Horror, the follow up to the critically-acclaimed Courting Tragedy And Disaster, has already been labeled as one of 2006's most anticipated releases by Decibel magazine, and sees the band heading in a thrashier direction while maintaining a commitment to tirelessly touring behind this album, maintaining their reputation as seasoned road warriors. The band will later head back to Europe to follow up its successful run of the continent with 3 Inches of Blood in December 2005.

Massachusetts' The Acacia Strain will be a part of the tour fresh out of recording tracks with veteran producer Adam Dutkiewicz (Killswitch Engage) for the upcoming album The Dead Walk. A release date for the record has not been determined, but The Acacia Strain will nonetheless head out on the road with a handful of new live-worthy tracks, hand in hand with the same win-them-one-by-one mentality the band has built its base upon.
