Exhumed, Creeping Death, Bewitcher & Enforced announce 2021 tour
San Jose gore masters Exhumed have announced the 'Worming Through America' tour with extremely stacked support from Texas hardcore-infused death metallers Creeping Death, speed metal-turned-Tribulation-esque Portland band Bewitcher, and Richmond crossover thrashers Enforced.
"We're beyond psyched to be back on the road AT LAST! It's been far too long since the teeming masses have choked on our foul stench," Exhumed say. "We've put together a killer, diverse lineup to crack craniums and rupture eardrums in a town (hopefully) near you, as well as some new surprises, including 'Worming,' an exclusive 'tour-only' vinyl EP. Gas up your chainsaws, put your beers and corpses on ice and get ready for us to roll into your neck of the woods and wake up some neighbors!"
The tour begins and ends on the West Coast, and it hits a ton of other US cities in between, including Brooklyn's Saint Vitus Bar on November 7. Tickets for the Vitus show go on sale Friday (6/25) at noon. All dates are listed below.
Exhumed's latest release is their 2020 split with related band Gruesome, Twisted Horror, on Relapse.. Creeping Death's debut album Wretched Illusions came out in 2019 on eOne. Earlier this year, Bewitcher released Cursed Be Thy Kingdom and Enforced released Kill Grid, both on Century Media.
UPDATE (6/25): Coinciding with tickets for this tour going on sale, Relapse released the Exhumed live album Ultimate Death Revenge. The description reads:
Recorded live, March 18, 2018 at the esteemed Oakland Metro Operahouse, Ultimate Death Revenge is a full-throttle ride through Exhumed's live show as well as the magnum o-pus concept album, Death Revenge. Cut with interviews of the band reminiscing on the album, its creation, and their wacky tour antics, Ultimate Death Revenge is sure to leave every gore metal maniac drooling for more.
