The two groups announced their joint co-headlining North American tour back in July -- and we've been looking forward to their Sept. 30 San Diego show ever since. (All That Remains' Phil Labonte pictured)

Both bands have new releases out or either on the way -- All That Remains released "Victim of the New Disease" last year, and Lacuna Coil (co-vocalist Cristina Scabbia, pictured) has a new album titled "Black Amina" coming soon.

When asked about the band's sound, Labonte said in an interview: "We are a modern metal band, is really the best way to say it, you know. Because we've got solos, we've got harmonies, we've got some of the kind of breakdown-y." (Richardson pictured)

And if you assume Labonte and Co. might only be into heavy music, you'd be wrong: "It's well documented that we like cheesy pop music," the frontman said during an interview. "There's pictures of me wearing Fall Out Boy shirts! I listen to Prince, and everyone knows that Mike and I love Nickelback, and everyone is always listening to Dr. Dre, or Snoop Dogg, or Eminem, or Jay-Z -- or just pop music!"
