CANNIBAL CORPSE: Australia/New Zealand Tour Announced

CANNIBAL CORPSE have lined up the following dates in Australia/New Zealand:

Oct. 03 - The Hifi Bar – Melbourne, AUS

Oct. 05 - The Arena - Brisbane, AUS
Oct. 06 - 420 - Auckland, NZ

Following their appearance on this year's Sounds of the Underground trek, CANNIBAL CORPSE plan to launch a U.S. headlining run — the kickoff will most likely take place in early November. The band's bassist, Alex Webster, told MTV.com the band had plans to film a clip for "Death Walking Terror".

"Every one of our songs has some kind of violent or dark imagery in it, but we have to look for songs that are a little less graphic," he said. "We only have a couple of songs on each record where the lyrics aren't more or less R-rated for violence. We have to carefully choose what songs we do videos for, because otherwise it won't make it passed the censors. The song 'Murder Worship', I think all of us would have liked to have done a video for that. But there's no way, with the decapitated heads and all."

In late March, CANNIBAL CORPSE released "Kill", their 10th studio LP. The album debuted at No. 170 on The Billboard 200 chart, selling more than 6,000 copies in its first week. It was the second time in the band's career that one of its albums breached the mostly pop-friendly list; in 1996, "Vile" opened at No. 151, with more than 6,100 copies sold.
