||Death metal demigods Carcass, melodeath powerhouse The Black Dahlia Murder, technical death metal heroes Gorguts and death/thrash squad Noisem will headline the Decibel Magazine Tour this upcoming March. The tour will fester across North America for 21 putrefying dates, integrating the past, present and future of extreme music. Check out the dates of this bill below.
Carcass frontman Jeff Walker says: "This is possibly the unsexiest Decibel Tour lineup yet. We're all bringing the 'girth' back to the U.S., along with gray hair and sensible footwear. But it's the music that matters, right? Just close your eyes and think of England. If that fails, think of Tampa."
Black Dahlia Murder frontman Trevor Strand is a longtime Carcass superfan, and says: "We are absolutely thrilled to be a part of this amazing tour. I will do my best to play it cool in the presence of such great and influential musicians who I have worshipped since the seventh grade — but I can't guarantee anything. We in the Dahlia camp are elated to have been considered, and vow to do our best to impress. Nothing less for the combined might of Carcass and Gorguts!"
Luc Lemay of Canadians Gorguts comments: "Since the first day I discovered Decibel, I always saw them like an institution. So, when I got the news that we were offered to be part of their annual tour, I felt totally honored and excited as hell! It will be amazing to share the stage with Carcass, the Black Dahlia Murder and Noisem to perform our new music every night!"
As for Baltimore death/thrash upstarts Noisem, guitarist Sebastian Phillips keeps his thoughts on the tour perfectly succinct: "Dream come true. Period."
