Last night in Columbus, OH, Chimaira kicked off their summer touring schedule with a huge show in their home state. The band is headlining a string of US dates before the Decimation of the Nation tour kicks off on July 31. C will be direct support to Hatebreed on the Decimation of the Nation tour, along with Winds of Plague, Dying Fetus, and Toxic Holocaust.

Guitarist Rob Arnold comments: “After a nice little two month break at home, coming off one of the best tours of our career with the mighty Disturbed, we kicked off our summer tour last night in Columbus, Ohio. Only two hours from our home town in Cleveland, anxious fans traveled from all over the state to catch the set. The response was fantastic, and we were glad to see all the die-hard Chimairians in attendance. We hope the upcoming shows will feel as good as last night did, and we're looking forward to spreading the Infection over the coming months! Keep checking Chimaira.com for tour updates and news, and be sure to check out the show when we're in a town near you!”

Chimaira is touring to support their latest album, The Infection, which hit streets in April and debuted at #30 on the Billboard 200 (their highest chart debut ever!). Full upcoming tour dates are listed below.

Chimaira headlining:

7/23 - Madison, WI - The Majestic Theatre

 Guster

 

Boston-bred band Guster have just announced their nine-date headline tour, Lost & Gone Forever Ten Year Anniversary Tour, which will kick off 10/28 in Charlotte, NC and wrap on 11/27 at the Beacon Theater in New York.  This anniversary tour will be Guster’s only headline dates of this year.   

Ten years have passed since the band’s critically acclaimed release of Lost and Gone Forever which in their words “helped us graduate from our van to a bus”.  These nine very special evenings with Guster will include two sets, one of which will be the album in its entirety and no opening act. 

Guster has specially chosen each venue as they have historical significance to the group.  Higher Ground in Vermont (now in new location) was where they launched the original “Lost & Gone Forever” tour.  Ten years ago at the Orpheum, in Boston, Guster put on an epic Halloween show wearing tuxes and pretending it was New Year’s Eve, Y2K.  The Beacon in New York harkens back to a time when they played Thanksgiving Weekend in NYC five years in a row. 

Tickets for these shows will go on sale this Friday, July 17th.  Ticket purchases are available at Ticket Master and Live Nation:
