CHIMAIRA will be heading out on the road for a round of dates with UNEARTH this fall on “THE JÄGERMEISTER PRESENTS TOUR“. The Jägermeister Presents Tour featuring Chimaira will begin October 10th in Kent, Ohio. The band will be touring in support of their latest record “The Age of Hell” and will be embarking on an Australian and European tour in 2012, followed by more US touring.
“We are extremely excited to hit the road with our old friends in Unearth,” says Mark Hunter. “Crazy to think that our bands have been playing shows for over 10 years but never headlined together in the states. A lot of fans have been waiting for this line-up and now the wait is over. This is going to be a blast! Our friends at Jägermeister will be supplying the fun, we’ll be blasting the tunes, and you guys bring the ruckus! I guarantee you don’t want to miss this!”
Tickets will be on sale to the general public starting September 23 through each venue’s ticketing outlet. Please check local listings or Chimaira’s official website for more details.
Skeletonwitch and Molotov Solution will also be joining these bands on the road.

CHIMAIRA have released the following statement:
“After a decade of good times and achievements, our friend and band mate Jim LaMarca [bass] has decided to retire from CHIMAIRA. We wish him nothing but the best as he settles in and starts a family. As for seeking a replacement… we’ll cross that bridge down the line. In the meantime, consider it ‘business as usual’ with the CHIMAIRA you know and love.
Emil Werstler [DAATH guitarist] will be handling the bass duties for the rest of the year, and we’ll see you on the road!”
