The Black Dahlia Murder are Letting Fans Pick the Setlist for Their Upcoming Tour


Black Dahlia Murder and Suicide Silence Tour
“Play some old stuff!!”

It’s a refrain too often uttered at metal shows.

So The Black Dahlia Murder have decided to do something about it: they’re inviting fans to vote on the setlist for their upcoming tour with Suicide Silence.

The band is running a poll on Metal Injection that lets fans vote on their favorite songs from everything on UnhallowedMiasma and Nocturnal. Here’s what they have to say on how this idea came about:

We are planning on playing a set that is heavy with classic material on our upcoming US tour with Suicide Silence. We thought it would be fun (and informational) to do a poll through our pals in Metal Injection to see what you all want to hear on this epic occasion!!! Select your three favorites from each album and we will construct your dream Dahlia set. Vote now and come rage to the results on tour this October!

Does this mean the band will definitely be playing the three top-voted songs from each album, or nine fan-voted songs total? They don’t quite say that explicitly. Or do they reserve the right to further whittle it down from the nine finalists? That scenario seems more likely. Either way, pretty cool idea. Vote here.
