DevilDriver will begin their first ever headlining tour in the spring with Bury Your Dead, Darkest Hour, If Hope Dies and Remembering Never.

The band will tour in July and August as part of a "big U.S. festival", however it will not be Ozzfest or Sounds of the Underground. The band plans to kick off another headlining tour in mid-September. DevilDriver is currently on tour with Opeth and Dark Tranquility. Check their website for dates.
