Canadian rockers Deadly Apples will join as the main support act for Rob Zombie
and Marilyn Manson

Of Evil - The Second Coming consists of a 27-date trek across the US from July 11th to August 29th. Tickets for the Rob Zombie

Deadly Apples is fronted by Alex Martel who is the founder of one of Canada's largest rock festivals. Drummer and songwriter Antoine Lamothe comes from a visual arts background, being recruited in 2013 by Céline Dion's artistic director to join the 4U2C team. Trained in graphic design, animation and visual effects for cinema, he is the brain behind Deadly Apples visuals from logo to video. Rounding out the band are newer members Raul Campued and Dan Pelletier. Both joined in 2017, Campued on samples and keyboards and Pelletier on guitar. He also engineered the Petty album and the Infected E.P.
Deadly Apples' first full-length album, Petty, is expected for release Fall 2018 with details to be announced soon The album was mixed in Nashville by Vance Powell (Jack White, Arctic Monkeys), mastered by Bob Ludwig (Nirvana, Led Zeppelin) and features Munky from Korn as guest guitarist on two tracks, including the first single, "Further."
''Munky has seen me grow from fan to frontman over the years, so needless to say it was a great experience working with him on two songs for the Petty album.'' - Frontman Alex Martel.
Deadly Apples formed in 2002 and as active until 2011, releasing 2 EP's (''Metamorphosis Has Begun'' in 2005 and ''Infected'' in 2008), touring and playing festivals with bands such as Korn and Rob Zombie
in N. America
and collaborating with Ministry/Puscifer's Paul Barker on remixes for ''Fix - The Ministry Movie''. In 2011, Deadly Apples went on hiatus as frontman and founder Alex Martel focused on the rapid growth of his festival, which went on to become the largest rock festival in Canada and drummer and main composer Antoine Lamothe focused on his film work.
years after the band's last performance, Deadly Apples reunited in 2017 and hit the ground running to tour the world. The band has also recorded a full album in Nashville, ''Petty''with Dan Pelletier which will be released later this year. On ''Petty'', Deadly Apples explores a more diverse experimental rock and electronic sound, moving away from its early industrial metal roots. The band is known for chaotic live performances with an elaborate visual light show and spent most of last year on the road including a stint as direct support to Rammstein
in Canada, direct support to Deftones
in Mexico, Knotfest Main Stage (2nd act), and the Fronterizo Fest Main Stage. 2018 saw more gigs including direct support to Korn in Japan in March, Main Stage for Mexican festivals in April, May, and June including Hell & Heaven
with Ozzy Osbourne.
