Legendary Florida death metallers OBITUARY have issued the following update:"We regret to inform you for reasons beyond our control we must cancel this May tour. We wanna thank everyone for their hard work and dedication for this tour and we WILL reschedule this for September 2008... Look for updates."
OBITUARY's May tour was scheduled to include DYING FETUS, ORIGIN and THY WILL BE DONE. A rare OBITUARY track, entitled "Executioner Returns", has been posted on the group's MySpace page. The song originally appeared on the limited-edition digipack version of the Florida-based death metal band's latest CD, "Xecutioner's Return", which came out last year. "Xecutioner's Return" was mixed at Redroom Recorders and was mastered in June at Morrisound Studios in Tampa. The band once again worked with artist Andreas Marschall, who has previously created the art for "The End Complete" and the group's last record, "Frozen in Time". Roadrunner Records recently released a "best-of" collection from OBITUARY, entitled, appropriately enough, "The Best of Obituary".
