ORIGIN, SKINLESS, OBSCURA, MAN MUST DIE, and ANTIGAMA will join forces for the first-ever European edition of the legendary Relapse Records Contamination Tour. The trek will bring extremity as only Relapse Records can provide to Europe in an extensive four-week run.

ORIGIN recently issued its new full-length album, "Antithesis", to worldwide acclaim! Infamous New York death metal destroyers SKINLESS will co-headline the bill and bring their patented brand of chaos back to Europe for the first time in years. The newest addition to the Relapse family, Germany's technical metal masters OBSCURA boast a lineup packed with ex-members of such legendary bands as PESTILENCE and NECROPHAGIST. OBSCURA's forthcoming Relapse debut "Cosmogenesis" (coming March 2009), might very well be THE death metal record of 2009 and will more than justify the band's already impressive pedigree. Scotland's metal wrecking crew MAN MUST DIE, the first-ever UK band signed to Relapse, will release its new full-length, "No Tolerance For Imperfection", in April 2009. Poland's progressive grindcore quartet ANTIGAMA will release its new full-length in March 2009.

The Relapse Records Contamination Tour is an institution in North America and has been a vehicle used to expose some of its newest and most exciting bands over the course of the label's 17-year history. Previous Contamination Tours have included bands such as MASTODON, THE DILLINGER ESCAPE PLAN, NEUROSIS, NILE, HIGH ON FIRE, CEPHALIC CARNAGE, COALESCE, ORIGIN, MISERY INDEX, and many, many more.
