Sweden's Tribulation returned earlier this year with the great Down Below, which picked up where The Children of the Night's blend of black/death metal and classic rock left off, and also went even further into prog/psych territory. They're set to return to North America in September and October in support of the new album, and they're playing a mix of headlining dates and co-headlining dates with proggy, melodic doomers Pallbearer, which is a great match.

Pallbearer have other dates before that, including Brooklyn's Saint Vitus this month (7/30), and they're also hinting at a new release. They say, "After a long period of constant touring behind Heartless, it’s almost time for us to settle into the cold season and begin crafting our next musical endeavor. But before that, we are heading out once more across North America to bring this chapter to its conclusion. We look forward to stretching out our sets each night on this double bill with Tribulation, revisiting some songs from our past and adding extra layers to newer material."

Tribulation's tour includes a headlining show (without Pallbearer) at Brooklyn's Elsewhere (Zone One) on October 12. Tickets for that show go on sale Friday (7/13) at 10 AM. All dates are listed below.

Along with the tour announcement, Pallbearer released an official live video of "Thorns," which was filmed during a recent US tour. It was shot by Elizabeth Cline and Diana Lee Zadlo, edited by Christian Lesperance, and directed by Zev Deans. Watch, along with the music video for Tribulation's "The Lament" off Down Below, below.
