Veteran metal bands Cradle of Filth and DevilDriver will team up for a co-headline tour starting March 8, 2023, in Tempe, Arizona.
The first leg of the “Double Trouble Live” tour will visit several popular western and southern U.S. markets, coming to an end March 26 in Albuquerque, New Mexico. Support will come from Black Satellite and Oni.
“Cradle of Filth are maniacally looking forward to this two-pronged headline assault with fellow noisemongers DevilDriver,” Cradle of Filth’s Dani Filth said. “Frontman Dez has been a friend for years and a brilliant manager to boot, and to head out on the road for what promises to be the first leg of the ‘Double Trouble Live’ world tour with him and the band was an opportunity far too good to pass on.
“We are chomping at the bit to get out on the west coast again after our very successful run supporting Danzig last summer, and this eclectic tour package is so heavy it’s literally going to grind faces to a pulp. Which, in this line of work, is a good thing!
“So, see you guys (and ghouls) out on the road for what promises to be twelve devastating nights of musical mayhem and debauch! Definitely a killer tour not to be missed!”
DevilDriver’s Dez Fafara said: “I have been a fan of Cradle of Filth since the early ’90s, and over the years I’ve not only had the opportunity to become great friends with Dani and the band, whom are all wonderful people, but also to manage their career alongside my wife Anahstasia, who is CEO at Oracle Management.
“When presented the opportunity to go out on what is DevilDriver’s first shows in almost three years and co-headline with the mighty Cradle of Filth on this first run of what is now a world tour, it could not be passed on!
“I’m looking forward to not only crushing stages with DevilDriver, but also watching Cradle of Filth nightly on the side of the stage.
Get the fuck ready–this tour will be the one not to miss this year and tickets will go quickly! Get the fuck in the pit–this one will be vicious!”
Tickets go on sale at 10 a.m. local time, Friday, Jan. 13.
A second leg of the tour is planned for later this year.
