The more I receive Monday tour announcement emails the more I feel that we are moving in the proper direction in this global pandemic. Sure you need a mask to go most places or show vaccination proof but hey its better than continuing to wait for shows to be able to happen. This soapboxing brings me to the sharing of the news from Cattle Decapitation who have announced a new tour. Read on.
The Press Release:
When CATTLE DECAPITATION released one of the most unflinching albums of 2019, Death Atlas, American fans were left in a void as tours were shut down due to the pandemic. Today, the San Diego grinders announce the Death…At Last Tour. The journey runs from January 18th, 2022 through February 20th, 2022. Support will be provided by The Last Ten Seconds Of Life, Creeping Death, and Extinction A.D. Continue reading Cattle Decapitation Announces “Death…At Last” Headlining Tour→

PiercingMetal Thoughts: As this will be a continuous list I will refrain from commenting just yet.
The previously announced reunion of Mr. Bungle (discussed HERE) and their subsequent adding of dates for these select shows (discussed HERE) were great announcements but the massive bit of curiosity was who would be opening for these shows. Now, those answers are revealed. Check it out down below.
The Press Release:
Eureka, Calif. – Mr. Bungle, who surprised fans last month when they unexpectedly announced several live performances, all of which sold out within moments of their on-sale, have announced the bands who will be joining them for the highly-anticipated performances. Hand-picked by the Mr. Bungle band members, the openers include Cattle Decapitation, Possessed, Hirax, the Melvins, Ho99o9, C*nts and Spotlights, reflecting a mix of artists that both influenced the Eureka-born outfit’s 1986 demo, The Raging Wrath of the Easter Bunny, as well as current bands that the musicians are both fans of and feel are carrying on the spirit of that era, both musically and in attitude.
