The Black Dahlia Murder have announced their first major tour since the tragic death of lead vocalist Trevor Strnad. When the band revealed they would continue on without Trevor, with guitarist Brian Eschbach taking over on lead vocals, they mentioned how one of Trevor's roles was uplifting young and new bands, and how they plan to do their best to continue to do this. That's very much what they're doing with this tour, which includes three of the most promising newer metal and/or hardcore bands around (Frozen Soul, Fuming Mouth, and Phobophilic), along with hardcore lifers Terror, who remain at the top of their game. Dates begin with Decibel Fest Philly in April and run through May. See all dates below.

The tour includes an NYC show at Irving Plaza on April 16. Tickets go on sale Friday, January 20 at 10 AM local, with various presales starting Wednesday, January 18 at 10 AM.

The Black Dahlia Murder, Frozen Soul, and Fuming Mouth are all on our list of metal albums we're anticipating in 2023. Terror's Pain Into Power is on our list of the best hardcore of 2022, and Phobophilic's Enveloping Absurdity is on our list of the best metal of 2022.
