Carcass have announced the UK leg of the Deathcrusher Tour 2015 and confirmed they’ll share the bill with Obituary, Voivod and Herod.
The eight-date run begins in Wolverhampton on October 23 and will be followed by an extensive European tour which will see Napalm Death added to the lineup.
Carcass frontman Jeff Walker says: “Off the back of touring the US with Obituary, we thought it would be cool to combine this into something special. And Voivod, who have also just toured the US, why not invite them along for the ride?
“Carcass has wanted to do a Euro tour for a while now, we’ve been looking for the perfect opportunity and this is it. Save your pennies for the heaviest tour of the fall and see it live before it gets uploaded to youtube on low quality camera phones.”
They are playing a series of festivals this summer, a schedule that guitarist Bill Steer hopes to take advantage of to begin writing material for the band’s seventh studio album.
Steer says: “Personally I’m keeping my fingers crossed a bit that things don’t get too hectic because it would be quite nice in between these festivals to get a little bit of work done regarding the next album.
“I’ve already been jamming quite a bit but you don’t like to force these things, you create when you feel ready. It’s very early days on that one but I think when you’re doing festivals you have the luxury of being at home for an average of four to five days a week. That’s brilliant but I think we want to make the most of that and actually get some work done.”
