Savage and slick, Act of Defiance are one of those Metal bands that stay true to their roots, and they're bringing the Metal once again straight to fans beginning April 30 as part of their new Spring and Summer headlining tour.

The first stop will be their first time ever in the Philippines at the Pulp Summer Slam Festival with other rising legends such as Lacuna Coil, Veil of Maya and Protest the Hero. The tour comes in direct support of their debut album, Birth and the Burial.

"I am extremely excited to get back out on the road to tour!" states guitarist Chris Broderick (ex-Megadeth). "Starting with the Pulp Festival, it will be the first time Act of Defiance will play on a different continent and I couldn't think of a better festival to start with. After that, opening up for Hatebreed and DevilDriver will be a great experience for us as both of those bands put on a killer live show and will be awesome to see live. I'm excited to do some more headlining in the US and Canada, meeting more of our fans, and making more friends. I hope to see you all out there."

Shawn Drover (also ex-Megadeth) feels the same.

"Going back to the Philippines is something I am really looking forward to the fans of Heavy Metal there are so amazing and I cannot wait to bring Act of Defiance over to the Pulp Summer Slam Festival!!!" he enthuses. "As well, I am extremely excited about the A.o.D Summer 2016 Tour—both headlining and playing several shows with Hatebreed, which will be crushing. Come out and rage with us!"
