Vocalist John Tardy of Florida death metallers OBITUARY has issued the following update:"We are enjoying some time off and it has given us a chance to finally work on some new music. Trevor [Peres; guitar] was in town and we got some new OBITUARY songs down. Heavy as balls! Donald [Tardy; drums] and I also have been working on some new TARDY BROTHERS 'Bloodline' material... Just having a blast jamming!!!! "We are getting closer and closer to the start of our U.S. tour! It starts off in Orlando and the Club Firestone! This place is awesome and we have not played in Orlando in a long, long time, so we are hoping for a killer show!!" A two-camera shoot of OBITUARY performing the songs "Chopped in Half" and "Turned Inside Out" on March 12, 2010 at the Academy in Sheffield, England can be viewed below. SIX FEET UNDER/ex-MASSACRE bassist Terry Butler filled in for OBITUARY's Frank Watkins on the recent trek. OBITUARY's new concert DVD, "Live Xecution - Party.San 2008", was filmed at 2008's Party.San Open Air festival, which was held in Bad Berka, Germany.
