Jägermeister presents tour with co-headliners UNEARTH and ChimairaSince the band’s genre defining release The Oncoming StormUNEARTH has continuously crisscrossed the globe, becoming one of the hardest – and most consistent – touring bands in all of hard rock. With Darkness In the Light, their fifth full-length, the quintet have delivered their most honest, powerful, and compelling statement to date, driving a fist into the collective gut of every image-obsessed wannabe metal band currently cluttering up the landscape, and setting a new standard when it comes to marrying precision brute force and exhilarating melody.

Earning themselves Top 200 Billboard Chart entries for all four of the band’s Metal Blade releases (The Oncoming Storm, III: In the Eyes of Fire, The March, and Darkness in the Light), UNEARTH is once again prepared to take the world by storm when they hit the road this fall with Cleveland, OH’s Chimaira. The tour will be joined by Athens, OH’s Skeletonwitch and Las Vegas, NV’s Molotov Solution.

Jägermeister, the brand that’s synonymous with music has a long history of supporting bands, both from a local and basement level to national amphitheater acts. The brand has spent almost two decades developing artists and has seen many go from obscurity to the top of their fields. “Both bands symbolize the attitude that Jägermeister shares with hard rock and metal music,” says Bill Henderson, Senior Vice President of Marketing and Advertising at Sidney Frank Importing Company, Inc. “Chimaira and UNEARTH have both worked with our brand for several years and it’s great that we can continue the relationship with this tour.”

“We are incredibly pleased to announce this fall’s Jägermeister tour in North America,” says Trevor Phipps of UNEARTH. “We will be supporting our new album Darkness in the Light and are anxious to play more tracks from that album. Hitting the road with us will be our old friends in ChimairaSkeletonwitch and soon to be new friends in Molotov Solution. We would like to thank Jägermeister for supporting this tour and we look forward to seeing you all on the road! Let’s make this a fall tour to remember!!! Cheers!!!”

Tickets will be on sale to the general public starting September 23 through each venue’s ticketing outlet. Please check local listings or UNEARTH’s website HERE for more details.
