Machine Head, Trivium and French export Gojira will support on the cross-country trek, which is set to begin at the Palladium Ballroom in Dallas February 16.

The four bands will hit clubs and theatres throughout North America for seven weeks, finishing up at Bogart’s in Cincinnati April 5.

The venues on the itinerary are significantly smaller than the arenas Lamb of God has played on its last few tours, including its headline slot on 2005’s Sounds Of The Underground.

“When you are a kid, you dream of playing your music in an arena. Once you’ve done it, you realize how much you miss the power and energy of a kick ass club show,” Lamb of God drummer Chris Adler said in a press release.

Adler added that when planning the tour, the bands made sure they would “hit a lot of cities that normally get overlooked.”

“Let’s bring the best show we can to the people that have been left waiting for far too long,” he said.

The band spent the summer on Slayer‘s Unholy Alliance tour and then went out with Megadeth on Gigantour before visiting Europe, Australia and Japan.

Lamb of God’s latest album, Sacrament, was released in August. The disc features the song “Redneck,” which received a Grammy nomination for best metal performance.
