Another band being rumored for the tour is Fleshgod Apocalypse. The band has recently hinted they would be on a high profile tour and they fit the Summer Slaughter criteria.

There have been other rumored bands but it must be said that there is little evidence or proof to suggest they will be on the tour. It is still interesting for the sake of discussion. Those bands are:

The Acacia Strain
After The Burial

Morbid Angel
The Faceless
Dying Fetus
The Acacia Strain
After The Burial
Fleshgod Apocalypse
