 (New York, NY) — CHIMAIRA will be heading out on the road for a round of dates with UNEARTH this fall on “THE JÄGERMEISTER PRESENTS TOUR”. The Jägermeister Presents Tour featuring Chimaira will begin October 10th in Kent, Ohio. The band will be touring in support of their latest record “The Age of Hell” and will be embarking on an Australian and European tour in 2012, followed by more US touring.

“We are extremely excited to hit the road with our old friends in Unearth,” says Mark Hunter. “Crazy to think that our bands have been playing shows for over 10 years but never headlined together in the states. A lot of fans have been waiting for this line-up and now the wait is over. This is going to be a blast! Our friends at Jägermeister will be supplying the fun, we’ll be blasting the tunes, and you guys bring the ruckus! I guarantee you don’t want to miss this!”

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

After over 12 years of defining what Cleveland metal and brutal music should sound like, CHIMAIRA advances their trademark brand of heavy with their latest monster, The Age of Hell. As with mostCHIMAIRA records, the composition of the record was fraught with adversity. Longtime drummer, Andols Herrick, bass player Jim Lamarca, and electronic knob twister, Chris Spicuzza, had fallen away from the band, leaving CHIMAIRA’s flagship member and singer, Mark Hunter, and guitarists Rob Arnold and Matt Devries with an album to record for their debut on Eone/Longbranch with no rhythm section or effects specialist. The splintered CHIMAIRA could have stared at the sun, dissecting separate fires then converging into a singular sphere of blinding defeat. Instead, Hunter, Arnold, and Devries pushed themselves into frequent collaborator, Ben Schigel’s Spider Studios. Now, the eclipse of what you thought you knew about contemporary metal has begun.

Skeletonwitch and Molotov Solution will also be joining these bands on the road.

CHIMAIRA released their eOne debut last month, August 16th to much critical praise. Alternative Press recently called the new record“Chimaira’s most ferocious material to date.” Preview or purchase on iTunes HERE. If you haven’t seen it yet, be sure to watch a brand new music video for the track “Year Of The Snake” HERE.
