Tour de Force



So many of you have e-mailed us this week to instruct us to post news about the fact that Opeth and Enslaved are touring together that I’m fairly certain posting news about the fact that Opeth and Enslaved are touring together is a complete waste of time; I mean, clearly, everyone and their mother is already aware of this tour.

I’m not saying this isn’t an awesome package – clearly, it is – I’m just saying, you’ve all sent us the news and the tour dates, so what can we tell you that you don’t already know? How about this: we will be at the show at the Starland Ballroom in NJ, and we will be high. Actually, you probably knew that already, too.

I’m putting tour dates after the jump, although I don’t for the life of me know why.

May 2 – Boston, MA @ House of Blues Boston

Also, in an effort to become death metal’s answer to Kiss, the Carcass reunion tour is somehow still going on. They’ll have a bunch of cool bands on all the dates, including Suicide Silence and Arsis; if you haven’t seen ’em yet, I’d go buy my tickets right now… although something tells me this won’t be your last chance to see ’em.

Also, Obituary are touring with Goatwhore, Krisiun, Berzerker and Warbringer.

Also, Suffocation are touring with Whitechapel, Decrepit Birth, Veil of Maya, and Psycroptic.

This concludes our needless reiteration of information you already knew.
