As the summer concert season approaches, two more of the biggest names in rock, Korn and Faith No More, have just announced a co-headlining tour.

That’s right, on Tuesday morning, the bands shared their plans for the Summer Tour 2020 — a 26-date trek across North America — via their respective websites.

Though Korn’s often-hectic touring cycle sees them tour North America annually, the Summer Tour 2020 will mark Faith No More’s first shows in the continent in more than five years.

Kicking off on Aug. 7, in Denver, Colo., the Epic rockers will play alongside the Freak On a Leash headbangers for six weeks before concluding in Maryland Heights, Mo., on Sept. 17.

Along the way, the pair will stop by in Toronto for their sole Canadian stop at Budweiser Stage on Sept. 9.

On the first half of the tour, System of a Down’s Daron Malakian will join Korn and Faith No More on the road with his Scars on Broadway band.

For the latter half — which includes Toronto — New York City-based metal band Helmet will serve as the tour’s special opening act.

As of this writing, it’s currently unclear whether Faith No More is working on a follow-up to its last studio album Sol Invictus (2015).

Korn, on the other hand, released its latest record, The Nothing (2019), only six months ago and will continue to promote the critically acclaimed effort while on tour.
