DEAD BY WEDNESDAY To Support RAVEN On US Tour; Band Streaming New Song “Darwin’s Dance”

Connecticut-based heavy metal frontrunners Dead By Wednesday have announced their upcoming US tour supporting British heavy metal legends Raven. The month-long run will begin on August 17th in Clifton Park, NY and visit 25+ venues before coming to an end in Allentown, PA on September 15th, with Raven playing an additional solo date the next day. Original Fear Factory drummer Mike Heller will fill in on drums for Raven on the entire run. More dates are scheduled to be announced. Tickets are available via local venues.

In celebration of the upcoming tour, Dead By Wednesday have released a brand new song, "Darwin's Dance”, an example of what's to come on the band's upcoming full-length album.

"Darwin's Dance" will be available for download via iTunes, Amazon, Spotify very soon. For now, the track is available for a limited time on Bandcamp, featuring the "pay your own price" option.

Dead By Wednesday vocalist Rob Roy says: "We are super pumped to unleash our new tune "Darwin's Dance" to the masses but better yet even more stoked to be touring as direct support to British metal legends Raven! Can't wait to hear some of their road stories and I'm sure we'll be learning a thing or two from them as well."

Raven vocalist and bassist John Gallagher adds: "This is going to be a brilliant tour! We can't wait to get back into some US markets that we haven't been in a while but also return to some that we have. We love seeing our same fans but hope to see some new faces as well. Plus, we will have some fresh new blood out with us opening who are our EMP labelmates, Dead By Wednesday."

While on tour, catch Dead By Wednesday's touring guitarist and newest member Kyle "Squirrel" Leary jamming on his brand new Legator guitars. Leary just signed on for a full endorsement with Legator.
