As previously reported, fan-filmed video footage of OBITUARY performing the song "Find the Arise" on July 5, 2007 at the Underworld in London, England has been posted on YouTube.
OBITUARY will team up with ALABAMA THUNDERPUSSY, FULL BLOWN CHAOS and HEMLOCK for a North American tour in September/October.
Candlelight Records, together with iTunes, has premiered the first song from OBITUARY's upcoming album, "Xecutioner's Return", via an advance single. "Evil Ways". It is the first and only advance taste of the album, which is set to hit North American stores on August 28.
OBITUARY has posted the cover artwork for its upcoming album, "Xecutioner's Return", at this location. The band once again worked with artist Andreas Marschall, who has previously created the art for "The End Complete" and the group's most recent record, "Frozen in Time".
"Xecutioner's Return" was mixed at Redroom Recorders and was mastered in June at Morrisound Studios in Tampa.
