Defeater supports August Burns Red on North American Tour starting Friday

By on October 28, 2013


Defeater will begin a North American tour this Friday, November 1st, supporting August Burns Red.  Blessthefall, and Beartooth will be in tow as well during the 39 shows throughout parts of Canada and most of the U.S. Check out a full tour routing below.

Shortly after their August Burns Red run comes to an end, Defeater will be heading over to Europe and the UK for a headlining tour in support of their most recent full length, Letters Home. This tour will see Defeater headlining in the Netherlands, Belgium, the UK, Germany, Hungary, Austria, Italy, and Switzerland.  Dates span January into February of 2014.

Defeater’s most recent full-length, Letters Home, was released this past summer on Bridge Nine Records.  Letters Home features powerfully intricate guitar instrumentation, colossal-sounding drums, and Defeater vocalist Derek Archambault’s voice sounding more ferocious than ever before.  These ten new tracks are heavy and haunting, while lyrically poignant and continuing the story of a working class family living in post-WWII America.  Letters Home debuted at #72 on the Billboard Top 200 Charts and was called “a striking album from one of punk’s most valuable bands, and one that rewards repeated listening” by Rock Sound magazine.
