Chicago heavy metal stalwarts returned this year with their seventh album, Evolution, and they're taking it across the country. Immortalized was the group's first record following their five year hiatus, during which they pursued various projects, and it saw them sounding revitalised, bringing fresh energy to their brand of hooky, stadium ready choruses and unforgiving riffs.
The album features the bands 12th number one single, which has remained at the top of the charts for four consecutive weeks. A true sign that the band is showing no sign of slowing down.
The band are approaching the live experience in a new way as well. Front man David Draiman characterised these dates as back to basics gigs: "We know the arena shows will come, but we wanted to start out feeling like it did in the old days. Intimate, hot, and intense. We can't wait. Prepare yourselves."
