Decibel Magazine announced the dates and bands for this year’s second annual Decibal Magazine Tour on Tuesday. The tour will be headlined by legendary metal acts Cannibal Corpse, Napalm Death and Immolation.
Additionally, there will be a rotation of three bands for the opening spot for every date. They are the “demented Bay Area death-grinders Cretin, Canadian tech-prog upstarts Beyond Creation and Beltway grind/powerviolence crushers Magrudergrind,” according to the tour’s Web site.
The tour will begin on May 10 in Houston, Texas. It will be near Springfield in St. Louis on June 9 at Pops. The full list of dates can be found at the tour’s official Web site.
“We’re psyched to be headlining this year’s Decibel Magazine Tour along with Immolation and Napalm Death,” commented Alex Webster, bassist for Cannibal Corpse. “This is a lineup of bands that have been a consistent part of the death/grind scene for decades, and we’re proud to be a part of it. It will be a legendary night for extreme music.”
Added Napalm Death bassist Shane Embury
We are really excited to be getting back to the States! We are fired up to be sharing the stage with Immolation and Cannibal Corpse—great friends of ours from way back, and awesome bands! Also, finally, for us it’s brilliant that this is a Decibel tour, a magazine that’s shown us great support over the years. That makes it an honor for us to be part of this package, and something very close to our hearts. It’s going to be a fun tour for sure! Oh yeah, I almost forgot: Totally chuffed, too, that Albert (Mudrian, editor in chief of Decibel Magazine, has) agreed to do some backing vocals on ‘The Kill’ with us! Yes, come on!
