Cannibal Corpse announce 29-date US tour

Cannibal Corpse have announced a US tour which will take place this winter.

They’ve lined up the run of 29 dates in support of their latest album Red Before Black, which launched in November last year via Metal Blade Records.

They’ll hit the road with Hate Eternal and Harm’s Way, with the shows kicking off at The Music Farm in Columbia on November 2 and they'll bring the curtain down with a set at The Culture Room, Fort Lauderdale, on December 6.

Speaking about their latest album, bassist Alex Webster said: “Throughout our career, we've tried to improve the precision of both our musical execution and our album production, while still maintaining full-on aggression. 

Red Before Black continues in that direction but might go even further on the aggressive side of things. It's definitely precise, but it has a rawness to it that goes beyond anything we've done recently.”

Drummer Paul Mazurkiewicz added: “We really worked super hard crafting these songs, practicing them, and getting them where we wanted to be more so than on any of our previous albums.

“And as Alex said, musically I think it's the rawest sound we've had – and at the same time I think it's our most focused, tightest, and catchiest record.”

Tickets for the shows will go on sale on Friday (July 20).
