Oakland, CA band SAVIOURS have announced North American tour dates in support of their new album Into Abaddon. Saviours will join heavy metal veterans ICED EARTH for a run of dates set to kick off September 21st in Detroit, MI. Saviours will also headline a number of live dates both previous to joining up with Iced Earth, and on off nights during the tour.

Hot off a blistering performance as part of Norway’s ØYA Festival and a recent run across Europe alongside labelmates THE SWORD, Saviours continue to tour relentlessly, bringing their commanding live show to stages across the globe. Known for their refreshing take on the classic metal of decades past, Saviours have rapidly become frontrunners in today's thriving heavy metal underworld, spewing vocal wildfire over an endless arsenal of harmonized guitars and locomotive rhythms.

On the topic of the tour with Iced Earth, Saviours drummer Scott Batiste comments, "We're stoked to get on the road with these power metal legends. There is much destruction and raging to come."

In more Saviours news, the band has announced the addition of guitarist Sonny Reinhardt (WATCH THEM DIE) to its ranks. Reinhardt will join Saviours on the road for the upcoming North American tour dates. Saviours have also begun prepping songs for Into Abaddon’s follow up, set for release in 2009. The new material is said to be “insanely dynamic”, boasting passages containing “three part guitar harmonies”.

Saviours’ Into Abaddon was produced, engineered and mixed by "Evil" Joe Barresi.

Alongside Batiste, Saviours features guitarist / vocalist Austin Barber, guitarists D. Tyler Morris and Sonny Reinhardt and bassist Cyrus Comiskey.
