Chimaira Unveil Dates for Headlining 2013 North American Tour

Liz Ramanand, Loudwire

Chimaira fans have much to rejoice about. With the band’s new album ‘Crown of Phantoms’ due out on July 30, the group is gearing up for a headlining tour this summer all across North America.

The new album is Chimaira’s follow up to 2011’s ‘The Age of Hell.’ Despite numerous lineup changes throughout the years, ‘Crown of Phantoms’ is the group’s sixth studio album. Vocalist Mark Hunter is the only remaining original member while Emil Werstler (Daath) has been in the band since 2009 and has moved from rhythm guitarist to bassist and now lead guitarist.

The rest of the current Chimaira members are drummer Austin D’Amond (Bleed the Sky), guitarist Matt Szlachta (Dirge Within), bassist Jeremy Creamer (Daath) and keyboardist Sean Zatorsky (Daath).

Hunter addresses the new lineup by saying, “Assembling the right team was essential to creating what I feel is some of the craziest and most passionate music  I’ve had the pleasure to be a part of. The past defines us while the present refines us.”

The monthlong trek will kick off July 26 in Virginia and hit Texas, California, New York, Canada and many more states before wrapping up Aug. 25. Check out a full list of dates below.
