Following a series of triumphant headlining European dates, Billy Talent has today announced the long-awaited Canadian leg of their Dead Silence Tour. The tour, which kicks off on March 14, 2013, at Vancouver's Pacific Coliseum, is scheduled to hit 17 cities across the country, including Ottawa's Scotiabank Place on Friday, April 12. Joining Billy Talent for the entire tour will be special guests Sum 41, Hollerado and Indian Handcrafts. Tickets go on sale starting Friday, Dec. 7.

On Sept. 19, Billy Talent's fourth studio album, Dead Silence became the band's third consecutive release to enter the Canadian album sales charts at #1 and fourth consecutive album to be certified gold. Dead Silence also made impressive debuts around the world. The record debuted at #1 in Germany which is the second time the band has topped the German charts (Billy Talent II debuted at #1 while the band's third album debuted at #2). The record also bowed in at #2 in Austria, #3 in Switzerland, #12 in Finland and #23 in the U.K. The album was recorded in Vancouver, Los Angeles and Toronto and is the band's first self-produced record with guitarist Ian D'sa overseeing the recording from the producer's chair.

Dead Silence has already produced two hit singles at Rock radio in Canada. "Viking Death March" originally released as an album teaser for fans, was quickly embraced by radio and became the band's sixth Top 5 song at Rock Radio. The current single, "Surprise Surprise" is making its own way up the radio charts where it currently sits at #5 at Rock Radio while continuing to gain in airplay.

Since finishing the recording of Dead Silence, Billy Talent has spent the past few months playing some of Europe's biggest rock festivals and more recently, headlining a major European tour that took them throughout the U.K., Germany, Switzerland, Norway and Finland in addition to two dates in Russia.
