On April 30th, Act of Defiance will kick off their spring/summer tour dates by making their first appearance in the Philippines at Pulp Summer Slam – a festival that boasts a line-up of Lacuna Coil, Protest the Hero, Veil of Maya, and more! After this special fest, the band will then hit the road in North America, playing headlining shows as well as supporting Hatebreed and DevilDriver at select dates. Act of Defiance\’s Chris Broderick (guitars) comments: \”I am extremely excited to get back out on the road to tour! Starting with the Pulp festival, it will be the first time Act Of Defiance will play on a different continent and I couldn\’t think of a better festival to start with. After that, opening up for Hatebreed and DevilDriver will be a great experience for us as both of those bands put on a killer live show and will be awesome to see live. I am also excited to do some more headlining shows in the US and Canada, meeting more of our fans, and making more friends. I hope to see you all out there.\” Shawn Drover (drums) adds: \”For me, going back to the Philippines is something I am really looking forward to – the fans of Heavy Metal there are so amazing and I cannot wait to bring Act of Defiance over to the Pulp Summer Slam Festival!!! As well, I am extremely excited about the A.O.D 2016 North American tour – both headlining and playing several shows with Hatebreed, which will be crushing!!!! Come out and rage with us!!!!\” See below for all upcoming dates!
