Norway's 1349 have been confirmed as support for Marduk's North American summer tour, which kicks off June 2 in Baltimore. This marks the band's first activity on this continent since 2010, when they supported Cannibal Corpse and Triptykon on separate treks. That same year saw the release of the critically acclaimed "Demonoir," which Decibel called "a riff-packed, forward-looking blast of rockin'-yet-technical grimness."

Front man Ravn comments on the group's impending return, which will see Job For A Cowboy's Jon "The Charn" Rice filling in on drums for the band: "After touring North America at least once a year, this tradition was broken in 2011, so it is with honor we accepted the invitation from Marduk to tour with them. We look forward to once again cross this continent and spread our Aural Hellfire."

The tour will include one headline performance at The Glass House in Pomona, Calif. on June 18. Tickets go on sale Saturday. After wrapping up the tour in San Diego two nights later, the group will travel to Chile, where they will perform at Santiago's Club 334 on June 23.

Celebrating their 15th Anniversary in 2012, 1349 -- named after the year the Black Plague struck Norway -- have previously toured America with Carcass, Suffocation, Skeletonwitch and Celtic Frost. The latter band's Tom G. Warrior co-produced "Demonoir," the group's fifth full-length, which is available as a digipak, picture disc LP and digital download. Last week, the group played the Inferno Metal Festival in Switzerland alongside Meshuggah, Immortal and more.
