Death Metal band Lamb of God will unite with animated metalists Dethklok for a late summer trek of North America.

The respective headbangers will kick off the 32-city tour Aug. 1 in Seattle. From there, they will take their raucous brand of rock to Canada for a handful of appearances before shredding their way back to the states for the remainder of the run, which closes Sept. 15 in San Francisco.

French progressive metal band Gojira will offer opening support all the way. Tickets are on sale now.

Three-time Grammy Award-nominated Lamb of God will be promoting their latest effort, "Resolution," which debuted in January. The album peaked at No. 3 on The Billboard 200 chart and took the highest spots on four other Billboard charts.

Adult Swim's virtual band Dethklok from the show "Metalocalypse" normally comprises animated members Nathan Explosion, William Murderface, Skwisgaar Skwigelf, Pickles and Toki Wartooth, but as in tours past, show co-creator and composer Brendon Small, along with band members Gene Hoglan, Bryan Beller and Mike Keneally will fill in. The corporeal rockers will promote the cartoon outfit's most recent release, 2009's "Dethalbum II," which peaked at No. 2 on Billboard's Top Independent Albums chart. According to a press release, Small is currently in the studio working on the band's third effort, scheduled for release later this year. "Metalocalypse" airs Sundays.
