Apocalyptica Announce U.S. Headlining Tour Dates; Worlds Collide to be Released April 15


Apocalyptica will be headlining a U.S. Tour kicking off on April 11 at the House of Blues in Las Vegas, NV. Along with the tour, they are set to release their sixth studio album Worlds Collide on April 15. Their first single, "I'm Not Jesus" featuring Corey Taylor, is surging up the charts, currently Top 20 at Active Rock Radio.

Apocalyptica is its own unique and maverick musical animal, one that continues to reinvent itself. Formed solely of cellists in 1993, a drummer was added in 2005 to complete the Finnish band.
