Dark Funeral, Cattle Decapitation, 200 Stab Wounds, and Blackbraid to Embark on U.S. Tour


An absolute must-see concert series is going to make its was across the U.S. this May thanks to our friends over at Decibel Magaziine. That’s because Dark Funeral, Cattle Decapitation, 200 Stab Wounds and Blackbraid are gonna bring the hurt just as the spring really gets going here in the states.

Presented by Metal Blade and sponsored by Pull the Plug Patches, Century Media, IndieMerchStore, Upstate Records, Sauce Leopard and Savage Lands, the tour will surely bring a level of absolute badassery to the unwashed masses that’ll rival even the heaviest of shows.

Dark Funeral guitarist and founder Lord Ahriman said he was absolutely stoked to get the show going.

“North America, we will soon meet again. And this time we’re coming back to headline the epic Decibel Magazine Tour – what an honor. We have already prepared a new and absolutely amazing setlist. You will be in for a massive treat this time, no doubt.”

Similarly, Cattle Decapitation vocalist Travis Ryan complimented the other bands on the bill, commenting on both their musical excellence and general all around nice guys.

“Excited to be hitting the USA again and playing more than just one new song this time. Dark Funeral are great guys, and we look forward to jamming alongside them; Metal Blade Records has told us many good things about labelmates 200 Stab Wounds so it will be good to finally meet and see them! What Blackbraid is doing is super sick, and we do love our black metal, so all in all its looking to be quite an awesome run!”

Tickets for this killer bill will go on sale online this Friday, February 3 at 10 a.m. local time.
