San Diego death metal vets Cattle Decapitation announced way back in 2010 that they were releasing a rarities compilation called Medium Rarities, which will feature "never before heard songs, hard to find/out of print tracks, live material, cover tunes and ultra rare pre-'Human Jerky' tracks never before heard by fans of the band." It never ended up coming out, but now it finally has a release date: November 23 via Nuclear Blast. It's 23 tracks long, and the first one released is "An Exposition of Insides," which was originally a Japanese bonus track on 2012's Monolith of Inhumanity. You can stream that and check out the full tracklist below. That's the artwork above.

Cattle Decapitation, who recently welcomed two new members -- guitarist Belisario Dimuzio (Eukaryst) and bassist Olivier Pinard (Cryptopsy) -- are also working on a followup to 2015's The Anthropocene Extinction, which is due in fall 2019. In fall 2018, they'll be on tour with Suffocation, Krisiun and Soreption. For Suffocation, this will be their final tour with original vocalist Frank Mullen.

The tour begins on Long Island at Mulcahy's on 10/21 and wraps back up in the Northeast, including a NYC show on 11/16 at Gramercy Theatre (tickets). All dates are listed below.
