American metalheads, it’s time to brush up on your Te Reo Māori: New Zealand-based thrashers Alien Weaponry have announced that they’ll be hitting the states next month alongside industrial legends Ministry and synth ragers Carpenter Brut. You can find dates below.

For those of you who don’t know, Alien Weaponry are three teenagers from New Zealand who make killer thrash with lyrics in their motherland’s native Maori language. The band’s latest album, Tu, dropped earlier this year, and absolutely crushes.

The Alien Weaponry dudes released the following video in preparation for the tour:

Looks like this tour’s going to be a lot of fun--and if our interview with Ministry’s Al Jourgensen is any indication, the Alien Weaponry dudes’ll have an interesting time.
