Tour Statement Unfortunately @actofdefiance is not going on tour this April with @deathangelofficial and @overkillofficial . We were really looking forward to touring with our friends in those bands but in light of the fact that In Flames asked me to continue filling in for Niclas during the start of their new CD cycle and AOD is wrapping up our Old Scars, New Wounds CD cycle, I have decided to continue touring with In Flames. Act Of Defiance will start looking at our next CD release and pick up any tours time permitting. Thanks for all of your support and understanding. Check out my current schedule. I look forward to seeing you all on the road. -Chris Photo credit: @stephaniedcabral #StephanieCabralPhotography #chrisbroderick #ActofDefiance #InFlames
