The final week of the pre-release campaign will feature an additional six video premieres following the initial six that will be staggered throughout February and March. All fans will have the opportunity to hear the entire album prior to the April 1 release of DEVIL.

Guitarist Pat McManaman shares, “I’m excited for the iTunes pre-order and the fact we will be releasing 6 instant gratification tracks leading up to the release. I think it’s a great way to reward people that preorder the album.”

 

Chiodos has announced additional tour dates planned for April and May in both Canada and The U.S. Today, a tour pre-sale goes live with three VIP ticketing choices alongside a general admission ticketing option. For DEVIL DANCE TOUR 2014 tickets go to www.chiodos.net.

On May 7, Hands Like Houses will be added to the bill, appearing on all dates through May 21. A complete list of confirmed appearances follows below. Chiodos’ Bradley Bell states, “It’s exciting to be able to do a full U.S. headliner again. We haven’t done one in years and we’re looking forward to have the opportunity to play for our old school fans and new ones at the same time. What better way to celebrate our new album and tour than with friends and bands that we’ve met along the way. It’s going to be a lot of fun!”
