The trespassing shenanigans begin July 13 in Broomfield, Colo., at the 1stBank Center. Last show on the route is Aug. 28 in Hollywood, Calif., at the Hollywood Palladium.

Trespass America is brought to you as a co-production with Metal Hammer. The UK metal magazine has had a lot of experience working with various events over the years including partnering with Bloodstock Open Air and Download Festival. Metal Hammer was most recently involved with the Defenders of The Faith tour and also hosts its own Hammerfest festivals in the U.K.
“We will carry the flag into mainstream territory; we will trespass on their turf all across America,” said Five Finger Death Punch’s Zoltan Bathory, who helped spearhead the festival concept. “The combined power of Metal Hammer and all these bands enable us to make a statement, a really loud one. Heavy music wants its place back in the limelight, so get ready, because we are coming, and we are coming in numbers.”
Bathory adds that the festival “will be a traveling circus that has all the attraction and excitement that creates an experience. We wanted to build the biggest stage we could and make this festival as visually unforgettable as possible, really give fans their money’s worth, give them an experience where they will want to say, ‘I was there.’”
Ticket onsales begin Friday, April 27.
