OBITUARY To Tour North America With ABBATH

Florida death metal legends OBITUARY will embark on a North American headlining tour in the fall. Support on the 24-date trek will come from ABBATH, MIDNIGHT and DEVIL MASTER. The tour will kick off on September 27 in Baton Rouge, Louisiana and end on October 25 in Atlanta, Georgia.

Tickets will go on sale on Friday, June 28 at 10 a.m. local time.

OBITUARY comments: "The Florida rednecks are headed out on tour and we are dragging our 'Norwegian redneck brother' Abbath out of Bergen to join us in North America. This will be one hell of a tour. We are also very proud to invite our boys MIDNIGHT and DEVIL MASTER to make this truly a killer lineup!"

Last December, OBITUARY bassist Terry Butler told Mammoth Metal TV that the band had "some riffs kicking around" for the follow-up to 2017's "Obituary" album. He said: "You've gotta keep it going. You can't take six or seven years between albums; we're not KISS or IRON MAIDEN or whatever. People still wanna hear new music. Even though you don't sell a lot of records anymore, they still wanna hear new music. So, yeah, we've got some stuff in the works."

He continued: "When you boil it down, at this stage of the game for us, it's definitely a business. I mean, we love playing music and we love playing for people, for crowds, but it's a business. So you've gotta the engine running; you've gotta tour — that's where the money is at these days."

OBITUARY's second Relapse release — the aforementioned self-titled tenth studio album — came out in March 2017.
