Metal-minded cello trio Apocalyptica returned this month to cover the music of Metallica on their 10th studio album, and they've now announced plans to take Plays Metallica, Vol. 2 on tour in North America next year.

In February and March of 2025, the Finnish group will play 24 dates on the continent with support from guitar virtuoso Nita Strauss.

Seven Canadian dates have been included on the run, bringing Apocalyptica and Strauss to Montreal, Toronto, Winnipeg, Saskatoon, Edmonton, Calgary and Vancouver.

Find the band's complete itinerary below. Tickets for all dates go on sale June 14 at 10 a.m. local time, with further details available via Apocalyptica's official website.

Out now via Throwdown Entertainment / BMG, Plays Metallica, Vol. 2 finds Apocalyptica collaborating with both the metal icons' frontman James Hetfield and bassist Robert Trujillo, in addition to ex-Slayer drummer Dave Lombardo. You can go behind the scenes of their latest creation with a short documentary in the player below.

The album is a companion to Apocalyptica's 1996 debut Plays Metallica by Four Cellos.
