The Press Release:
There is no easy way to put this. Devastation on the Nation Tour 2021 is canceled.
When we rescheduled the tour we thought that in a year everything would be okay again, but it still is not and we have no clear picture of what the future holds. More and more venues are closing down every month. This virus (COVID-19) has ruined everything for so many bands, musicians, and venues.
Even if the tour were to still happen in February/March of 2021, how many more venues will be closed down? What will the capacity restrictions be for each show? How will 3 out of 5 bands from a different country survive here IF the borders reopen? It’s impossible to know and at this point there is no light at the end of the tunnel. We will not reschedule again until we 100% know that it will be possible for the tour to happen and that the bands from outside of the US are able to come here.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, there are numerous states and cities on the Devastation On The Nation Tour that are putting bans on gatherings anywhere between 100-1000 people. On top of that, the President of the United States of America has put a travel ban in place for anyone coming from Europe to America for the next 30 days which starts Friday. Three out of the five bands on this tour are from Europe which are Rotting Christ, Borknagar, and Wolfheart. They were scheduled to fly here on March 18th. Unfortunately, as you can see, our hands are tied and we have no other choice than to postpone the Devastation On The Nation Tour.

Going to keep this one quick and to the point. The mighty Cryptopsy will be returning to our neck of the woods as a part of the third annual “Devastation On The Nation” tour. The actual lineup roster was revealed a few short weeks ago by the folks at MetalSucks.net who are sponsoring the run. If you didn’t see that for some reason here is who will be performing that exciting Death Metal tuneage. Cryptopsy, Decrepit Birth, Rivers of Nihil, The Zenith Passage, The Kennedy Veil, Visceral Disgorge, Seeker and Gloom. Obviously the whole thing will be headlined by Cryptopsy with direct support from Rivers of Nihil across the full tour. It’s been reported that Cryptopsy will be performing their 1996 album “None So Vile” in full at every single show so if this album is something that you cannot do without, its going to be an exciting show no matter what.

I’ve been musing aloud about the number of incredibly crushing Metal tours that were happening and just the other day the folks at Metal Injection revealed their full lineup for a tour that they have put together called “Devastation On The Nation” for 2015. It places a co-headlining Origin with Brazilian brutality purveyors Krisiun and you can check out the poster below.
From top to bottom the lineup for this touring package will be Origin, Krisiun, Aeon, Alterbeast, Soreption and Ingested. At the point of this writing no venues nor the amount of stops happening have been set up. I’ll share that stuff when I see it posted as well for good measure. I wanted to make sure that this information was conveyed to my always awesome readers in case they are dealing with younger siblings who are insane over the departure of Zayn Melik from One Direction. Take this action as a queue to educate said siblings into the Metal ways. See you next time but before you go let’s discuss what you think about this package and where you would like to see it happen in terms of venue in the comments section.
