Fetus Dying from Suffocation

Fetus Dying from Suffocation

The news that Frank Mullen can no longer afford to tour with Suffocation full-time is heartbreaking; as I said to Mullen himself, it’s almost impossible to imagine the band without him. But to their credit, Suffocation are obviously aware that not just any old death metal vocalist can fill Mullen’s shoes… and so they’ve lined up a real heavyweight to fill-in for Mullen at the upcoming Suffo shows he’ll be missing: Dying Fetus’ John Gallagher.

Says Gallagher about the gig:

“I’m stoked to be performing on several shows with longtime friends and my brothers in metal, Suffocation. It’s going to be a blast and since I’ll JUST be singing the vocals, they are going to be super sick and guttural. So make sure to come out and party with us and witness the brutality!”

So while Mullen’s incredible stage banter will still be missed, at least we know there won’t be any issues in the vocal department.

Here are the band’s upcoming tour dates with Exhumed, Jungle Rot, Rings of Saturn, Adimiron, and Lord of War (starred dates only), with the seven dates that will feature Gallagher denoted:
