Saint Asonia Name Mike Mushok Fill-In on Theory of a Deadman + Skillet Tour
UPDATE (Feb. 16, 2023): Saint Asonia released a statement on social media (seen further down this page) indicating that "extenuating circumstances" will prevent guitarist Mike Mushok from playing with the band on their upcoming tour with Theory of a Deadman and Skillet. Tavis Stanley (Adelitas Way, Art of Dying) will temporarily fill in for him.
As 2022 winds down, the 2023 tour season is starting to fill up, and one of early 2023's top touring bills figures to be the co-headlining trek featuring Theory of a Deadman and Skillet. The two veteran bands will be hitting the road with Saint Asonia supporting, making for one great night of rock.
The "Rock Resurrection Tour" kicks off Feb. 17 in Gary, Indiana, heading east before circling back across the country for the tour's conclusion March 26 in Los Angeles. All of the dates, cities and venues can be seen toward the bottom of this post.
“We’re super stoked to be touring with our good friends in Skillet and Saint Asonia this winter,” shares Theory of a Deadman’s frontman Tyler Connolly. “We’re also really looking forward to playing new material for our fans!!”
"We are so excited to be touring with our friends from Theory again!," says Skillet's John Cooper. "It’s been several years since our last tour together, and this time we are also joined by our friends in Saint Asonia. We are looking forward to kicking off 2023 the right way by joining forces for a super-charged rock show! Panheads get ready!"
Theory of a Deadman recently released their new song "Dinosaur," which at current serves as a stand-alone single, but could eventually be part of their next studio album. Skillet, meanwhile, are touring in support of their early 2022 album, Dominion. Saint Asonia have divvied up their 2022 output between two EPs, Introvert and Extrovert, with the second EP set to drop this Friday (Nov. 18).
The artist presale will being tomorrow (Nov. 15) while other presales will follow on Wednesday and Thursday at 10AM local time. The general public on sale will be this Friday (Nov. 18) at 10AM local time. You can get your tickets through either Theory of a Deadman or Skillet's websites.
