“Off With Your Heads” Decapitated Announce North American Tour!

It’s been a couple of years since Decapitated has been over here to pummel our Metal senses with their throttling presentation and that makes me happy to share the news that they are in fact returning for a number of interesting dates for the masses. The first group finds the group on the headlining stage with two bands that I have not yet heard of while the second grouping finds them supporting the always devastating At The Gates. Whew, I hope Metalkind can withstand this sort of assault. Check out the poster and the press release and then I will return for some additional thoughts.

Tour - Decapitated - Winter 2016

The Press Release:
Polish technical death metallers DECAPITATED, will return to conquer North America once again this upcoming January! Just prior to being direct support to AT THE GATES on their U.S. tour, the band will do their own headlining run with support coming from BLACK BREATH and THEORIES.

Founding guitarist Vogg comments:

“We’re very excited to announce that we will be returning to North America in January and February as a part of the AT THE GATES tour, along with our first headline dates in over 3 years. As you probably know due to unexpected problems with U.S.C.I.S. we were forced to cancel our tour with SOULFLY in October this year. We can’t wait to get back and play for our loyal fans all over North America and we hope to see you there! Nothing will stop us this time!!!”

Vocalist Rasta adds:

“The beginning of 2016 is going to be awesome. We are coming back to United States and Canada!!!. As we all perfectly know, North America is one of the best place to play hard music. This continent was simply built on a Rock and Roll music, and I feel it every time we play there. Amazing crowds, constant head banging and of course unforgettable shows. North America are you ready?! We are coming! See you there!”

PiercingMetal Thoughts: As there are not a whole lot of dates on this run you best check your availability and make sure you get to one of them if you are a diehard of these Polish Metal Masters. I’ve seen Decapitated a number of times over the years and can promise you that they always deliver the goods on stage. Your neck will surely be sore for a few days afterwards but such is the price one pays when you support music of this kind. I fear for those who hit the NYC show since The Marlin Room is one big open floor and that means it’s going to be a swirling pit of mayhem from beginning to end. What do you think of this particular run of dates? Let me know in the comments below.
