Betraying the Martyrs announce first-ever headlining North American summer tour

Posted by on June 14, 2019

Betraying the Martyrs have announced their return to North America for their first-ever headlining North American Trek. The Summer Rapture Tour is scheduled to kick off on June 28th in Stanhope, NJ and will run through July 28th in Brooklyn, NY. Entheos, Within Destruction, Sentinels, and Defying Decay will be joining in on the month-long trek. You can also enter here to win two tickets at any show on the tour, special merchandise packs, a visit with the band on their tour bus, and a soundcheck experience.

Vocalist Aaron Matts expressed his excitement:

“We are beyond excited to cover US soil on our first full US headlining tour. To be able to play a full energetic set to an audience that has been with us since day one is an absolute honor for us! Along with a stacked line-up of sick bands, we’re all stoked to get on the road! Come to a show and lose yourselves with us all, see you all in the pit!”

The group have recently announced a new partnership with Chris Adler’s management company, Kinstugi Management as they are working on the follow-up to 2017’s The Resilient.

Adler commented:

“I’m honestly excited to be working with a group of friends with a united vision. Betraying the Martyrs is doing something very special. It’s labeled metalcore because it’s easy to put every band in a box, but in this case, that is a mistake. They have taken time to study and have salvaged and fine-tuned all that I love in metal music. It’s an exciting time for the band. We believe in the guys and there’s an incredible new album soon to drop. The band continues to grow a dedicated, international fan base via their hard work, vision and brutally contagious music. The new Betraying the Martyrs album is going to change the game. I’m sincerely thrilled to be involved with a group of people that focus and deliver.”

Matts added:

“We are beyond excited to announce our collaboration with the legendary Chris Adler and Kintsugi Management. To be on board the same ship as Chris and his incredible team has breathed new life into what we do. Their backing support goes beyond anything we have known previously. It’s truly an honor. With our next release in the barrel and ready to be fired into the world, we could not be any more prepared for the road ahead. We announce our signature to Kintsugiwith great pride.”
