This summer, THE BLACK DAHLIA MURDER and WHITECHAPEL will embark on a North American co-headlining tour. The trek, which runs from June 8 through July 14, will find THE BLACK DAHLIA MURDER performing its latest album, "Nightbringers", front to back and more, while WHITECHAPEL will play its classic "This Is Exile" in full to celebrate the record's tenth anniversary. Support will be provided by FLESHGOD APOCALYPSE, AVERSIONS CROWN and SHADOW OF INTENT.
Comments THE BLACK DAHLIA MURDER: "We've known WHITECHAPEL since their humble beginnings and have watched them rise to be the important force in heavy music that they are now. It's exciting to team up with them for this co-headlining tour that's sure to decimate venues everywhere this summer! See ya soon!"
Adds WHITECHAPEL: "We are excited to be doing a co-headliner with our friends and label mates THE BLACK DAHLIA MURDER. To celebrate the ten-year anniversary of 'This Is Exile', we will be playing it as a whole, and BLACK DAHLIA will be playing their new record as a whole as well. It should be a great night of metal."

To further commemorate WHITECHAPEL's "This Is Exile" anniversary, Metal Blade Records will release special LP reissues for the album on June 1. The band will also have a tour-exclusive edition available for fans on the road.
THE BLACK DAHLIA MURDER released "Nightbringers" to critical acclaim last fall. In the hands of guitarist Brian Eschbach — who cofounded the band with frontman Trevor Strnad in 2001 — and new recruit Brandon Ellis (ARSIS, ex-CANNABIS CORPSE), "Nightbringers" is rich with dynamic riffs that are at once fresh and classic THE BLACK DAHLIA MURDER, resulting in a collection that shifts through many moods and effortlessly incorporates various elements of extreme metal.
