HIGH ON FIRE has announced a full North American tour in support of its new De Vermis Mysteriis. The eagerly anticipated run -- the band's first since the release of the new LP -- will kick off on November 15 in Austin, TX and is slated to run through December 22 in San Francisco, CA.

Simply put, HIGH ON FIRE will hit the road with all guns blazing for what will undoubtedly be one of 2012's best heavy music tours!
