Hit Road

OBITUARY Preparing To Hit The Road, Enter The Studio

Florida death metal veterans OBITUARY will bring their brutal wares to the stage this fall on a short series of live assaults. The tour begins with a pair of back-to-back shows at Brooklyn, New York's Saint Vitus Bar on October 9 and 10, before flattening nine more venues through October 20. Having been holed up in their own Redneck Studios the last few weeks penning the follow-up to 2009's punishing "Darkest Day" full-length (2009), OBITUARY's upcoming shows serve as a temporary writing break. Elaborates drummer Donald Tardy: "We have been busting our asses in the studio, having a blast and writing new material. Twelve songs are done and ready to be recorded but we want a monster album for our fans so we are working on a few more to make this record huge! We will continue writing until October when we will take a break from the studio and new music and go destroy the Trois-Rivieres Metalfest with HATEBREED and crush the U.S." OBITUARY tour dates: Oct. 09 - St. Vitus - Brooklyn, NY Oct. 10 - St. Vitus - Brooklyn, NY Oct. 11 - American Legion - Allentown, PA Oct. 12 - Trois-Rivieres Metalfest - Trois-Rivieres, QC [info] Oct. 13 - Presidents Club - Boston, MA Oct. 15 - Beale Street - Indianapolis, IN Oct. 16 - Pyramid Scheme - Grand Rapids, MI
