THE BLACK DAHLIA MURDER/AFTER THE BURIAL/CARNIFEX/RIVERS OF NIHIL/UNDEATH

Last month we posted about the NYC date of a still to-be-announced tour with The Black Dahlia Murder, After the Burial, Carnifex, Rivers of Nihil, and Undeath. Now the "Up From the Sewer" tour (The Black Dahlia Murder's 2020 album Verminous inspired the theme) has been formally announced. "IS THIS REAL LIFE?," they write. "Yes, thankfully! We are beyond excited (and a little emotional) to finally announce our Verminous-themed 'Up From The Sewer Tour 2021'! It's been a long, torturous year full of disappointments and cosmic cockblocks, and seeing this tour come into fruition is the light at the end of the tunnel we've been eager to share with you all. We are honored to have assembled our dudes in After The Burial, CARNIFEX, Rivers of Nihil and Undeath for an evening of guaranteed fun, friendship, and ferocious heavy metal music."
