Metal titans Lamb Of God and Mastodon have announced the co-headlining “Ashes Of Leviathan” tour. The tour finds the two iconic bands joining forces to celebrate the 20th anniversary of two seminal releases: Lamb Of God‘s biggest-selling album “Ashes Of The Wake” and Mastodon‘s acclaimed sophomore album “Leviathan”, which were both released on August 31, 2004.

Both bands will perform their respective albums in full. Special guests Kerry King and Malevolence will act as support throughout the tour, with Unearth on select dates.

Kicking off on July 19 in Grand Prairie, Texas at the Texas Trust CU Theatre, the North American arena and amphitheater run will take them through the U.S. and Canada, culminating on the exact 20th anniversary of each album on August 31 in Omaha, Nebraska at the Astro Amphitheater. The tour will notably make stops at iconic venues such as Denver, Colorado’s Red Rocks Amphitheatre and Los Angeles, California’s Kia Forum. See below for full tour routing.

In addition, both bands will support a charity of their choice throughout the tour, and fans can opt-in to donate at check out when buying their tickets.

Lamb Of God will support the Living The Dream Foundation, which makes dreams come true for music fans living with life-threatening illnesses. Dream Days include hanging out onstage, backstage, and special meet and greets with their favorite bands and artists.

Mastodon will support the Hirshberg Foundation For Pancreatic Cancer Research. After their manager Nick John tragically passed away from pancreatic cancer in 2018, Mastodon partnered with the organization and has raised nearly $60,000 to fight the disease and support researchers and patients around the globe. The Hirshberg Foundation For Pancreatic Cancer Research is focused on finding a cure for pancreatic cancer and empowering patients and families whose lives are touched by this disease. Founded in 1997, the Hirshberg Foundation funds groundbreaking scientific research provides patient education and support, and sustains hope that this cancer will be eradicated once and for all.

“Ashes Of The Wake”, which came out via Epic, was officially certified gold in February 2016 by the RIAA (Recording Industry Association of America) for sales in excess of a 500,000 copies. It was reissued as a DualDisc edition in March 2005. One side of the “Ashes” DualDisc featured the regular album, while the other was a DVD featuring the entire album in enhanced LPCM Stereo, plus bonus features.

“Leviathan”, released on Relapse Records, was Mastodon‘s first concept album, loosely based on the 1851 novel “Moby-Dick” by Herman Melville. Three magazines named the LP “Album Of The Year” in 2004: RevolverKerrang! and Terrorizer. In 2009 and 2015, MetalSucks named “Leviathan” the best metal album of the 21st century. “Leviathan” was also released with an audio DVD in a limited-edition set with a black-and-gold slipcase.
