Carnifex confirm Decade Of Despair European tour

Carnifex have announced a European winter tour which includes four UK dates.

The US deathcore outfit hit the road in Europe on December 3, starting with a show in Cologne, Germany.

The Decade Of Despair tour is in support of the group’s latest album Die Without Hope and marks the celebration of their 10-year anniversary.

A mini-documentary about the tour has been released and can be viewed below.

Bassist Fred Calderon says: “This is the pinnacle moment you’re gonna see. If you’re not there, you’re not gonna be a part of this chapter that we’re embarking on. This is the turning point. This isn’t Carnifex 2.0, this isn’t the second part because the band’s already had so many chapters, but it’s a key turning point for where the band’s gonna go next.”

Drummer Shawn Cameron promises a new-look stage show. He adds: “We’re upping our stage production and trying to give more visual appeal – give you a little bit more.”

Support comes from Boris The Blade, Within The Ruins and Fallujah.
