Suicide Silence have officially announced their 10th anniversary tour for the band’s breakthrough album, The Cleansing. The North American tour with be a deathcore fest, featuring support from opening acts Upon a Burning Body, Slaughter to Prevail, Winds of Plague and Prison.

The deathcore giants teased plans for a 10th anniversary tour back in July, and this November, it will come to pass. The tour will start Nov. 11 in Oakland, Calif., and continue until Dec. 17 in Hollywood, Calif. Upon a Burning Body, Slaughter to Prevail and Prison will play the entire tour (though UABB will miss the final two dates) while Winds of Plague will open on the tour’s final six dates.

“10 f—king years!! The Cleansing was a record we wrote when most of us were in our early 20’s. I was in my teens still! My has the time flown by,” guitarist Mark Heylmun writes. “All we knew back then was we wanted to offend ppl and piss in the face of the mainstream (Dying Fetus pun intended). We’ve wanted to do a commemorative tour for this record for years now and the time has come. The Cleansing broke us into the metal world and the record came from a very special place, a fresh place, a place that words fail when I try to describe it, and without it…well we wouldn’t be here attempting to describe it.”

Heylmun adds, “Mitch [Lucker] had a vision for this record, he wanted to set a standard for our scene and in my eyes he created much much more. Since his passing, Eddie has paid homage to Mitch‘s vox on this record every night. It’s something very close to our hearts to have Eddie singing these songs with us. Mitch and Eddie inspired each other, exchanged vocal tips, and both have the passion for the most brutal sounds you can humanly make and it’s going to be an amazing show for us and for you. Emotions will be high, maybe we will be high too, you don’t want to miss this. Let’s f—king party! Come celebrate with us cuz this will only happen once!”
