Written by John Deaux
LOS ANGELES, Calif. (March 12, 2018) — Female-fronted metal group Butcher Babies announces their national co-headlining “Kings & Queens Tour” alongside fellow hard rock royalty Nonpoint. The tour follows the release of Butcher Babies’ chart-topping third studio album, Lilith, released in October via Century Media Records. Nonpoint will perform new music off their highly anticipated 10th studio album, slated for a Summer 2018 release via Spinefarm Records. Rising heavy metal band Cane Hill and punk/rock group Sumo Cyco will join the headliners. Tickets go on sale Friday, March 16.

“Since our inception, we have strived to create a performance that is a full on assault to the senses. We always felt that if you pay your hard earned money to see a show, you should get just that, a show! Raw energy, passion, and intensity,” shares co-frontwoman Carla Harvey. Heidi Shepherd adds: “We are excited to bring our devout U.S. fanbase a headlining set with lots of surprises; digging deep into our new album Lilith and sprinkling in some old favorites from our last nine years as a band.”
 
On the “Kings & Queens Tour,” Nonpoint frontman Elias Soriano comments: “The time off was fun, but it’s back to the business of moving crowds. The new music we play will show where we’re at and what we’re looking for out of the crowds in terms of reaction. We have pulled no punches! The live show is what we’re about, so expect our best on this run with the Queens in Butcher Babies.”
 
The “Kings & Queens Tour” will follow Butcher Babies’ current headlining European “Lilith Tour” and is preceded by their many U.S. festival appearances in 2017, including Aftershock Festival. The Los Angeles-based band previously supported Hollywood Undead on their Fall 2017 tour. Full “Kings & Queens Tour” routing below:
