Apocalyptica are bringing their signature brand of symphonic cello metal to North America next year. The Finnish band announced “The Cell-0 Tour”, which spans the month of May with support from gothic metal act Lacuna Coil.

Apocalyptica will be touring in support of their forthcoming album, Cell-0, which is out on January 10th. After emerging in 1996 with their highly successful debut album of Metallica covers, the group has since released numerous records of original music, as well as covers ranging from Pantera to David Bowie. The press release for the tour teases a setlist that “will likely vary night to night,” drawing from Cell-0 and past works.

The tour begins on May 3rd in Orlando, Florida, wrapping South and ascending the West Coast into Canada. From there, they’ll drop into the Midwest before closing the route on the East Coast with shows in New York and Boston at the end of the month. See the full list of dates below.
