CHARRED WALLS OF THE DAMNED — the new project led by acclaimed metal drummer Richard Christy (ICED EARTH, DEATH, LEASH LAW, CONTROL DENIED, BURNING INSIDE) — is hitting the road. Fans will finally have the chance to watch Christy and vocalist Tim "Ripper" Owens (JUDAS PRIEST, YNGWIE MALMSTEEN, ICED EARTH) perform the songs from CHARRED WALLS OF THE DAMNED's debut album this July. They'll be touring from Chicago through Canada and up to Worcester, Massachusetts for a massive show with DREAM THEATER. The trek will also feature comedian Don Jamieson from VH1 Classic's "That Metal Show".

A limited number of VIP tickets will be available. The VIP ticket includes a meet-and-greet with CHARRED WALLS OF THE DAMNED, a limited-edition poster to be signed by the band, a limited-edition exclusive t-shirt, and you will also be allowed to bring any other personal items to have the guys from the band sign.

Commented Christy: "I am soooooooooooooo pumped to get out on the road and blast some heavy metal with CHARRED WALLS OF THE DAMNED this summer! Tim Ripper Owens and I are beyond excited about this tour! The response to our debut album has been so amazing and I think people are going to be blown away when they hear these songs live! I'm sweating my buns off in the rehearsal room every day getting tighter and tighter on our songs so that we will be absolutely blistering when we get out on the road in July!

"Steve DiGiorgio [bass] and Jason Suecof [guitar] have prior commitments and won't be able to join us on this tour but we have the incredible musicians John Comprix (BEYOND FEAR, RINGWORM) on guitar, Dennis Hayes (BEYOND FEAR, ex-ICED EARTH) on bass, and Matt Sorg (RINGWORM) on guitar joining CHARRED WALLS OF THE DAMNED for this tour! We'll be playing our debut album in full and we'll have plenty more surprises as well!

"Joining us as host of the tour and also doing stand-up at each show will be the hilarious comedian and carrier of the heavy metal torch, Don Jamieson from VH1's 'That Metal Show'! I've known Don for many years and I'm so psyched to have him as part of this tour!

"Coming soon we'll have more big announcements about the tour, including opening bands in each market and other cool surprises! So get ready to raise your fists and bang your heads with CHARRED WALLS OF THE DAMNED this summer!"

Added Owens: "Man, I really look forward to this short run of shows, just going out with some friends and playing in front of some of the best fans around. And watching Don every night just tops it off!!!"
