Carnifex and Despised Icon Announce 2017 Co-Headlining Tour

I wasn’t kidding when I said there was a lot of tour stuff to get out to your music loving senses and that is why I am keeping this note brief and directing you right to the full press copy about the co-headlining run by Carnifex and a reunited Despised Icon. Let’s get EXTREME!!!!

The Press Release:
CARNIFEX and DESPISED ICON announce North American co-headlining tour
Symphonic deathcore merchants CARNIFEX will start a two month long crusade across North America starting next February. Shortly there after two colossal innovators of the genre collide, when deathcore godfathers DESPISED ICON join as co-headliners starting March 17th. Finishing out the tour package are ethereal progressive metallers FALLUHJAH, alien themed tech-death masters RINGS OF SATURN, as well as LORNA SHORE and SHE MUST BURN.

“Since the release of Slow Death fans have been asking for a headline tour,” comments CARNIFEX frontman Scott Lewis. “Slow Death has been a monster album for us, charting higher and selling faster than all our previous albums. This tour matches the size and scope of that album. Together with a our brothers in DESPISED ICON we’re bringing North America the sickest tour possible. Prepare yourself for a live show like no other.”

DESPISED ICON vocalist and founding member, Alex Erian, adds:
“We’ve known the CARNIFEX homies for a decade already and are excited to share the stage with them once again. These will be our only dates in North America next year. Don’t miss out! 2017 also marks The Ills Of Modern Man’s 10 year anniversary. Expect to hear the classics and a few new bangin’ tracks from Beast. See ya then!”

“The reality that CARNIFEX has been a band for ten years is still something I can’t quite grasp,” comments vocalist Scott Lewis. “I’ve felt we’ve always been outsiders from the start, even in the metal world.
