Avenged Sevenfold have announced their second tour in support of Hail to the King. The “Shepherd of Fire Tour,” which starts in mid-April, will find Hellyeah opening, and will hit several major rock festivals including Carolina Rebellion, Rise Above Fest and Rock on the Range.

The tour is named after the band’s second single from the album. It follows the title track, both of which have been #1 singles at active rock. Hellyeah’s fourth album, Blood for Blood, will be released in June, but by the tour starts, its first single should be at rock and metal radio. This will be Hellyeah’s first tour with their new lineup.
