NAPALM DEATH frontman Mark "Barney" Greenway has commented on the reports that the band have been confirmed to support CANNIBAL CORPSE on a month-long U.S. tour beginning in late October. The trek, which was exclusively announced on BLABBERMOUTH.NET this past Friday (June 18), is also expected to include VADER and GOATWHORE. NAPALM DEATH will do a week of pre-CANNIBAL CORPSE headlining shows (with VADER and GOATWHORE, among other acts) starting in Canada about 10 days earlier.Commented Barney: "We haven't been out to the U.S. for a good while, and the CANNIBAL thing seemed to make sense. Apart from the NILE thing last time, we always seem to headline, and I think that it will be good for kids to see an amalgamated bill, with NAPALM having perhaps — if this is the right phrase — a bit more hardcore/metal crossover appeal compared to CANNIBAL's pure death metal thing. A few days of practice beforehand with VADER and GOATWHORE will of course give us a little time to lick our slovenly hides into shape!"
