Demon Hunter will launch their "Stronger Than Hell Tour" this summer in support of the band's brand new album for Solid State Records, Storm The Gates Of Hell.

"The Stronger Than Hell Tour will definitely be an amazing experience for everyone involved," said singer Ryan Clark, who co-founded Demon Hunter with his guitarist brother Don shortly before the release of their self-titled debut album in 2002. "We can't wait to play some new material and get to know more of our amazing fans."

"I can't tell you how excited we are to get back out there on the road and play some new songs along with the crowd favorites," added Don, who recently attended the 2008 Grammy Awards as a nominee in the graphic design / packaging category (Ryan Clark was nominated last year and the year before).

The Stronger Than Hell Tour will feature special guest Living Sacrifice, the legendary metal band whose alumnus went on to join bands like Evanescence and P.O.D. This will be their first tour since reuniting.

The tour lineup is rounded out by Demon Hunter's labelmates in Oh, Sleeper as well as The Famine (featuring former Demon Hunter guitarist Chris McCaddon) and North Carolina's Advent.

"The members of Demon Hunter are ecstatic about the lineup," said Ryan Clark. "It features many of our old friends in both reunited and amazing new bands. For us, it's a bit of a family reunion."

Demon Hunter recently completed a video for "Carry Me Down," the second single from Storm The Gates Of Hell. The group was named one of "10 Artists to Watch" by AOL Music and featured on the cover of Revolver for their 2006 "Christian Metal" story. Demon Hunter's fans are some of the most dedicated in heavy metal. Check out their MySpace page to see the Demon Hunter logo tattoos that adorn many of their bodies.

Sadly, Their new record doesn't hold up against their last couple efforts.
Like the Triptych. That was good Demon Hunter. (IMO of course)

Summer Of Darkness is my favorite. I will hopefully be hitting up the Sac. show as well. Although I do hate that place! ;-)

Has this band ever come to Chicago or any surrounding burbs? When they hit IL, it's always some town I've never heard of.
