Demon Hunter Announces New Summer Tour Dates

Demon Hunter is excited to announce upcoming summer tour plans just a few short weeks after the debut of new album, "True Defiance."

The band, set to storm Europe next week, will come stateside to headline select dates of the upcoming Scream The Prayer tour this June with support by Emery, Sleeping Giant, Mychildren MyBride, Close Your Eyes, Hundredth, The Great Commission, and more.

Demon Hunter will then follow that up with a victory lap – appropriately titled "The True Defiance Tour" – from July until August with support from Bleeding Through, Cancer Bats, The Plot In You, and Willows.

"True Defiance," the band's sixth album, smashed its way into the charts last week at #36 on the Billboard 200. The album also landed at #3 on the Billboard Hard Rock Chart, #14 on the Billboard Rock Chart and #1 on the Billboard Christian Rock Chart.
