In June, Failure released their comeback album, The Heart Is a Monster – their first record in 19 years. The band's resurgence is set to continue as they just announced they'll embark on tour in support of the album in October and they will be joined on the road by Queens of the Stone Age's Troy Van Leeuwen – a former member of the Failure touring band and also performed on four songs from The Heart is a Monster.

Singer and guitarist Ken Andrews spoke about his excitement for the tour, saying in a press release:

This is a very special tour to me for a couple of reasons. One reason is the fact that we have some very cool bands joining us: Hum, Torche, Local H, And You Will Know Us by the Trail of Dead. The second reason this tour is so special to me is that we have managed to secure our dear friend and former band mate, Troy Van Leeuwen as the fourth member of Failure for this tour. I’m personally excited by this as it’s going to allow us to expand our live sound and repertoire. Think “Snow Angel” and “I Can See Houses” from The Heart Is A Monster, as well as a few gems from the past like our cover of “Enjoy The Silence.”
