Vice Records' rock heavyweights Panthers have just announced an extensive North American tour with High On Fire. Touring in support of their recent full length The Trick, Panthers' signature onslaught of epic three-minute riff-metal hits should ensure that these shows are nothing less than blistering.

Advance online ticket pre-sales for this tour will become available Friday, June 15 through DucatKing.com, with tickets opening up through all other standard outlets on Friday, June 22. Ducat King is a fan-friendly concert ticketing company dedicated to offering lower service charges and eliminating handling fees to the ticket buyer.

Press on Panthers' latest, The Trick:
Though some of you might find Panthers austere or too "cool", facts are facts- these dudes lay it the fuck down. The Trick rocks with indisputable authority. - ALTERNATIVE PRESS

It's a rock qua rock record, with all the circular reasoning that entails: It rocks because it rocks; rocking is worth doing because rocking rocks; ad infinitum. -PITCHFORK

ŠBrooklyn's Panthers' pounce comes across as part-DFA 1979's overdriven lashing and part-Wolfmothers fried boogie. Toned down is the post-hardcore arrhythmia of earlier recordings, and dialed in is a Queens of the Stone Age-style skuzzy strut. -- XLR8R
