Tour de Force



I have great news, less-great news, and more great news. The great news is, like the headline says, Obituary are touring. The less-great news is, it’s only a small tour — seven dates, all on the east coast — so you may be shit outta luck this time. And the more great news is, they’re apparently in the midst of writing a new album, and guitarist Trevor Peres says that “Our goal is to be in the studio by January or February and to release the album in May or June of 2012,” and promises that “the album will be followed up by a ton of tour dates,” starting with hitting the European festival circuit, followed by a proper Euro tour, followed by a proper North American trek in the fall of 2012. So, assuming the world hasn’t ended by then, you should get these death metal legends live one way or the other sometime within the next year.

In the meantime, you get dates for this brief tour after the jump. Support will come from Denial Fiend, whose most recent album, Horror Holocaust, made our own Satan Rosenbloom’s Best of 2011… So Far list back in August. In other words, these shows should be a blast from start to finish.

And so:
