Florida death metal pioneers, Obituary, have announced round two of their “East Coast Redneck Run.” The tour will feature California metal heads Exmortus, as support.
Obituary will end summer, and kick off the fall season playing intimate venues in smaller markets that the band usually doesn’t get to perform in. Horns will raise up on Sept.1, at the Cat’s Cradle in Carrboro, NC, when the tour gets underway. Upstate Concert Hall in Clifton Park will claim the only NY date on the tour when they hit the Capital Region on Sept. 8.
The band commented on how ready they are to hit the road in the U.S., before heading off on a run through Europe opening for Slayer on their final tour which also features Lamb of God and Anthrax:
“We are super excited to announce the U.S. East Coast RedNeck Run II and are really looking forward to this. It would have been easy to set up shows in the typical cities and venues but we are not your typical band. We are looking for an adventure and something different so we have booked smaller towns and markets so the fans who don’t often have the chance to experience an OB SHOW get their chance!! We have never been to some of these cities so we are looking forward to invading them and throwing down with you guys!!”
Obituary recently re-released their 2017 self titled, and tenth studio album with two bonus tracks and alternate cover art. They also plan to release, on Aug. 31, a very limited, first ever official pressing of the band’s Ten Thousand Ways To Die EP. The classic album will feature 12 live fan favorites from the band’s 2015 world tour.
