If I were Jon “The Charn” Rice, I’d be honored as hell right now.

Norwegian black metal outfit 1349 have recruited the Job For A Cowboy drummer to man the kit for their upcoming North American tour, as the support act for the mighty Marduk.

The tour kicks off June 2 in Baltimore, and marks 1349’s first activity on the North American continent since 2010.

“After touring North America at least once a year, this tradition was broken in 2011, so it is with honor we accepted the invitation from Marduk to tour with them,” says frontman Ravn. “We look forward to once again cross this continent and spread our Aural Hellfire.”

Rice has not commented on his new gig. Not yet anyways.

The tour will include one 1349 headline performance at The Glass House in Pomona, California, on June 18. After wrapping up the tour in San Diego two nights later, the group will travel to Chile, where they will perform at Santiago’s Club 334 on June 23.
