In celebration of their fifteenth birthday as a band, Chimaira announced back in November they'd be hitting the road at some point with Iwrestledabearonce, Oceano, Fit For an Autopsy and Reflections. Yesterday, "at some point" was clarified with a bunch of 2014 dates!
The band made the following statement late last week about the tour via Facebook:
"Chimaira turned fifteen this August, and the only appropriate way to 'Celebrate the Chaos' is to hit the road!
Take a trip through the entire catalog with us and rediscover old favorites in the new era of domination!
Rise up! The time has come…"
