Southern Lord Summer Tour 2012 Lineup And Routing Announced

The final details and routing for the previously-announced Southern Lord Summer package tour have been confirmed today. The tour is set to bring some of the label's newest and most promising acts as well as some heavy veterans on the eclectic but lethal roster together for a near month-long trek across the face of America.

The core acts for the tour include the Ontario-based hardcore/rock outfit Burning Love (featuring ex-Cursed vocalist), dark lords of Swedish crust Martyrdod, Milwaukee's metal/hardcore crossover outfit Enabler, and Seattle's d-beat/death-infused hardcore bastards Black Breath headlining the full tour. All four bands have brand new albums either already out or set to be unleashed based around the tour.

Special guests Poison Idea, Noothgrush, Pelican, Power Trip, Wild//Tribe, Dead in the Dirt, The Secret, and more will also infiltrate the routing, each with one or more regional performances throughout the debauchery-ridden escapade, and Southern Lord will also host a label showcase in Pomona, California with details to be announced in the coming weeks.
