The weekend is going to start off alright when you get to share the news about another tour that is coming to a venue near you. Check out the latest scoop from the folks in Morbid Angel.
The Press Release:
Legendary death metal icons MORBID ANGEL will kick off a US headlining tour this spring. Slated to commence on April 16th and run through May 17th, the month-long journey includes a headlining set at the New England Metal & Hardcore Fest. Direct support will be provided by Misery Index from April 16th to April 25th and Origin from April 26th through the tour’s conclusion. Additional support will be provided by Dreaming Dead and Hate Storm Annihilation. See all confirmed dates below.
MORBID ANGEL will be touring in support of their critically-lauded studio album, Kingdoms Disdained, released in December via Silver Lining Music. Kingdoms Disdained reunites founding guitarist Trey Azagthoth with bassist/vocalist Steve Tucker. Captured at Mana Studios in St. Petersburg, Florida and produced by MORBID ANGEL with Erik Rutan, the record delivers eleven pieces of devastatingly dynamic death metal. Compositions such as “Garden Of Disdain,” “Architect And Iconoclast,” and “The Pillars Crumbling” supremely illustrate Azagthoth’s incredible creative alchemy with Tucker as well as his own incomparable guitar work. Orders for Kingdoms Disdained are currently available at THIS LOCATION.
In related news, Silver Lining Music will release a limited edition 12″ picture disc edition of Kingdoms Disdained in honor of Record Store Day on April 21st. The disc – featuring the original cover art created by mixed-media artist Ken Coleman – will be housed in a clear PVC sleeve with product sticker and be available in all countries worldwide which participate in Record Store Day. A full list can be found HERE.

PiercingMetal Thoughts: I’ve got a confession to make. I’ve not yet heard the latest Morbid Angel album despite the intention to do so since its arrival in December of last year. I’ll get around to it but I just lost sight of it with all the rest of the stuff that we’ve been up to at the Media Command HQ. This tour surely interests me but the bands are NOT hitting NYC for a proper gig and the closest one for our side of the fence is at the Starland Ballroom which I don’t get to often. Perhaps this will come around for a second leg with additional cities to see them in. If that happens I will aim to be on point. What about the rest of you readers? Does this tour excite you if they are dropping in for a visit? Let me know down in the comments section below.
