2013 is a year that Danzig will always remember as the band is celebrating its 25th anniversary. Frontman Glenn Danzig and his cohorts have announced their first tour of the year and they plan on making it a real hard rocking celebration.

As part of his lineup, Danzig will welcome his former Misfits bandmate Doyle Wolfgang von Frankenstein for all of the U.S. dates. The band is expected to not only perform Danzig songs but also the music of the Misfits during the tour. In addition, the North American run will feature stellar support from Corrosion of Conformity and The Agonist.

Extreme metallers The Agonist expressed their joy at being chosen to open shows during Danzig's milestone year, especially after their proposed trek with Cradle of Filth fell apart due to unexpected immigration issues. The group stated, "When news of the cancellation came through, we were not only disappointed but heartbroken about losing the entire experience of touring with Cradle of Filth, The Faceless and Decapitated. All the members of The Agonist have been gearing up for this tour since the fall of last year and we were really looking forward to putting on amazing show for both old and new fans alike ... But alas, The Agonist moves on and is proud to announce an upcoming tour with the almighty Danzig (!!!) as well as the legendary Corrosion of Conformity in the month of April 2013!"

On the recording front, things have been quiet from Danzig of late. The group was reportedly working on a covers disc last year and their last original album was 2010's 'Death Red Saboath.' The 25th anniversary trek launches April 17 in Las Vegas and continues through April 28 in Ventura, Calif. This is the first leg of shows, with more dates expected to be announced soon.
