Carcass - Announce Last Show Ever


Reunited grindcore/death metal legends Carcasss will play their only UK date headlining the Damnation Festival 2008. The death metal legends will perform their first show on home soil in 14 years on Saturday, November 22nd at Leeds University. And the band yesterday hinted it could be the last show they ever play, wrapping up a successful reunion tour headlining some of the biggest metal stages across the globe.

Frontman Jeff Walker said: "Well, we enjoyed making you sweat… this is gonna be the ONLY UK show this year, and quite possibly your last chance to EVER catch us live! You Southerners are gonna have to get your shoes dirty and make your way 'oop' North to Leeds! To quote Herschell Gordon Lewis 'Prepare To Die!'"

Damnation Festival director Gavin McInally added: "The exclusive booking of Carcass is the biggest coup in British metal in 2008 and we're delighted to host their return to home soil. The fact that it could be the last time they ever take the stage together, makes the prospect of seeing them headline Damnation even more special. After a 14-year break, it's almost impossible to predict just how large the demands for tickets will be, so without the cheesy sales pitch, pawn your wedding ring or steal from close friends - just make sure you grab a brief! And stayed tuned for further announcements as the finest, doom, grind, black, rock and heavy metal completes what will be the finest day of music the UK will witness in 2008."

Tickets for Damnation will go on sale this Friday, June 27th at 9am. For more information, you can check here.

Duh, they only reformed for shows this year anyway. It's not just Leeds that's effected. They reformed for festival dates such as Hellfest, Tuska, Wacken,, Danish Metal Awards to name a few.

"Fan-filmed video footage of Carcass latest performance — Friday, June 20, 2008 at Hellfest in Clisson, France" — can be viewed here.

If the video link doesn't work, click here.

As BurbotsRevenge mentioned, they're touring Australia. I thought I actually posted that but I went out on the piss and was late, so must have left it halfway through

Here are the dates for Australia. This tour will be their first for 15 years! An absolute must for Aussie grind fans. I know I'll be going:

Oct. 09 - Perth, AUS @ Capitol
Oct. 10 - Adelaide, AUS @ HQ Complex
Oct. 11 - Brisbane, AUS @ The Arena
Oct. 12 - Sydney, AUS @ The Metro Theatre
Oct. 13 - Melbourne, AUS @ Billboard

Tickets go on sale on Thursday, June 26.
