Comments vocalist Travis Ryan, “It’s that time again! We’ve put together quite a lineup for our first headlining tour for our new album Death Atlas! In the spirit of diversity and keeping things interesting, we’ll be hitting the road this November with Atheist, our hometown buddy Author & Punisher, with Full Of Hell and Primitive Man switching on some dates – plus, kicking off the festivities every night will be Portland’s Vitriol! Our new album will be out, and we’ll be ripping through tracks on it nightly and playing some others that we haven’t done in a while. Don’t miss this absolute monster of a tour”

PiercingMetal Thoughts: Though I admit to not always being on point when Cattle Decapitation comes through our neck of the woods, I’ve enjoyed their level of overall brutality for sure. Historically speaking, I’ve only seen Atheist and Author & Punisher once so if I manage to be a part of my regional show, I will be arriving early enough to see the intensity of everyone involved. As I close this announcement up I wonder what you readers think about this tour and will you attend or not. You can chime in down below in the comments section, so do that when you get a chance and I will see you soon with more stuff from the world of heavy music and pop culture.
