Death metal greats Withered last released Grief Relic in 2016 and they say they've been writing, so maybe we'll be getting a followup soon. They also announced a tour and they say "[we] can’t wait to reintroduce some of Withered’s back catalogue to new and old fans," so maybe we can expect them to break out some deep cuts on the tour too. Most dates are with Canada's WAKE.

The tour includes a Brooklyn show on April 4 at Saint Vitus. Tickets for that show should be on sale soon. All dates are listed below.

Here's Withered's full statement accompanying the tour announcement:

After 6 months of one-off shows, a little writing, and regrouping, we can’t handle not being on the road any longer. So, we invited Canadian grinders, WAKE to join us late this winter for an eastern North America run. We plan to bring a new show with some songs we haven’t played in over a decade and can’t wait to reintroduce some of Withered’s back catalogue to new and old fans. It’s going to be one for the books.
