Two of the most influential bands of the 90s will soon hit the road together. Soundgarden and Nine Inch Nails announced a co-headlining tour of North America for this summer, with a stop planned in Austin and The Woodlands.

The tour will begin on July 19 in Las Vegas. They will play 23 dates across the continent — there is one show booked for Toronto — over the course to the next five weeks before winding it up on Aug. 25 at the Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles.

Soundgarden and Nine Inch Nails have an uneasy history together. As Consequence of Sound notes, their career-defining albums — ‘Superunknown’ and ‘The Downward Spiral,’ respectively — were released on March 8, 1994.  But ’Superunknown’ kept ’Spiral’ out of the top spot, which angered NIN frontman Trent Reznor when they performed together in Canada later that year.

“We had a chip on our shoulder about Soundgarden,” Trent Reznor said. “That became a kind of professional showdown. And we did show them.”

Before the tour starts, their paths will cross at the incarnations of Lollapalooza in Chile, Argentina and Brazil, which will take place between late-March and early-April.
