5FDP, Killswitch Engage, Trivium and More For Trespass America Festival (A Top Story)
On Wednesday 5FDP, Killswitch Engage, Trivium and More For Trespass America Festival was a top story. Here is the recap: Five Finger Death Punch, Killswitch Engage, Trivium, Pop Evil, Emmure, God Forbid and Battlecross will be teaming up this summer for a North American tour dubbed the Trespass America Festival.
The tour is set to kick off on July 13 at the 1st Bank Center in Broomfield, Colorado, and will cover 31 cities in two months between July and August.
The idea for Trespass America came about as a way to bring heavy music to big venues across the country. Five Finger Death Punch's Zoltan Bathory explained, "When you walk through the Trespass America gate, you will be in a different territory, a new environment. You're not just coming to see a band. It's going to be a traveling circus that has all the attraction and excitement that creates an experience. We wanted to build the biggest stage we could and make this festival as visually unforgettable as possible, really give fans their money's worth, give them an experience where they will want to say, 'I was there.' We also wanted to play as many indoor venues as possible so all bands on the bill, no matter how early they play, would have a full light show with full production. We want to make Trespass America a theme-park-thrill-ride for metalheads." - more on this story
