Fear, Emptiness, Decibel: And the Regional Openers for the Decibel Magazine Tour Are…
Before there were blogs there were these things called magazines, and the only metal magazine we still get excited about reading every month is Decibel. Here’s managing editor Andrew Bonazelli…
Last week we announced eight awesome regional openers for the second annual Decibel Magazine Tour, set to launch in mid-May. These are not to be confused with rotating openers Beyond Creation, Cretin and Magrudergrind, who will each tackle roughly a third of the country, doing their thing in advance of headliners Cannibal Corpse, Napalm Death and Immolation. In case you missed it, said eight acts are as follows:
May 10 / Houston, TX / Fitzgerald’s
KILL THE CLIENT
May 11 / Dallas, TX / Trees
May 12 / San Antonio, TX / Backstage Live
May 16 / Santa Ana, CA / The Observatory
May 17 / Oakland, CA / Metro
May 19 / Seattle, WA / El Corazon
May 21 / Vancouver, BC / Commodore Ballroom
Jun 05 / Brooklyn, NY / Music Hall of Williamsburg
DRUGS OF FAITH

If you’re confused about the exact lineup for the show you’re planning to attend, just click on the individual gig here. And most importantly, bear in mind that this doesn’t necessarily mean we’re done adding special guests. We can’t confirm or deny if there’s something special in the works for a separate show at an undisclosed location, but we can pepper you, dear commenter, for your personal wish list. It’s getting close to go time, but it’s not too late to add the cherry on top of your sickening sundae. Who do you most want to see as a one-off opener for the dB show closest to your mom’s basement?
Before the Decibel Magazine Tour was a tour, there was Decibel Magazine! The April 2013 issue features Clutch, Metallica, Exodus, Suffocation, and an awesome Lock Up flexi disc. You can purchase it here. But why not just get a full subscription to ensure that you never miss an issue?
