OH F*CK YES: CARCASS FINALLY ANNOUNCE U.S. DATE(S?)
Vince and I decided not to make the trek out to any European festivals this summer, based in part on the fact that most of the bands we wanted to see at any of these shows would eventually be playing a longer set at a smaller venue here in the States. Even At the Gates announced they were coming to town.
And yet, no word on the reunited Carcass crossing the pond. When the band announced Australian tour dates yesterday, I pretty much erupted into rage – why oh fucking why were the death metal heroes not coming our way?
Well, as it turns out, I had no reason to worry. Carcass will play the Nokia here in NYC on September 6 with Suffocation as support; it’s impossible for me to imagine that an announcement of more dates throughout the country won’t soon follow.
As was the case with the At the Gates reunion, this will be a hot ticket. These are pretty much the two most ripped off death metal bands of the past twenty years, so… keep yours eyes peeled for on-sale dates. Of course, we’ll try to keep you posted as best we can.
