Cattle Decapitation will tear the walls down in LPR with support from Atheist, Full of Hell & Author & Punisher.
The Press Release:
Eureka, Calif. – Mr. Bungle, who surprised fans last month when they unexpectedly announced several live performances, all of which sold out within moments of their on-sale, have announced the bands who will be joining them for the highly-anticipated performances.
Hand-picked by the Mr. Bungle band members, the openers include Cattle Decapitation, Possessed, Hirax, the Melvins, Ho99o9, C*nts and Spotlights, reflecting a mix of artists that both influenced the Eureka-born outfit’s 1986 demo, The Raging Wrath of the Easter Bunny, as well as current bands that the musicians are both fans of and feel are carrying on the spirit of that era, both musically and in attitude.
“Putting these shows together it occurred to us that this was a great opportunity to expose unsuspecting audiences to some of the absolutely legendary thrash, death metal and hardcore bands that originally inspired us in the mid 80s,” explains Trey Spruance. “And if we’re going to do that, why not re-unite with some of the equally legendary bands we were close with in the 90s? And why just concentrate on the past? Of the current bands that have taken some kind of inspiration from the heavier side of Mr. Bungle in doing their own thing, why not invite the select few that have managed to inspire us back?”
Mr. Bungle’s Trevor Dunn, Mike Patton, and Trey Spruance will be joined by Scott Ian (Anthrax, S.O.D.) and Dave Lombardo (Dead Cross, ex-Slayer, Suicidal Tendencies) for what has been dubbed: Mr. Bungle Plays The Raging Wrath of the Easter Bunny. The one off tour finds the group playing the self-produced and self-released 1986 demo in its entirety, marking not only the first Mr. Bungle performances in 20 years but the first time these songs will be played live in close to three decades.

The Press Release:
CATTLE DECAPITATION will begin their Summer Slaughter takeover this Friday. Boasting its first-ever triple co-headlining bill, this year’s edition of the Summer Slaughter tour finds CATTLE DECAPITATION, Carnifex, and The Faceless all sharing the spotlight of the main event and performing full sets.

On Black Friday 2019 (November 29th), CATTLE DECAPITATION will release their long-awaited ninth studio album, Death Atlas, via Metal Blade Records. Vocalist Travis Ryan comments: “We have crafted what we feel is our strongest album to date and we are really looking forward to bringing a couple of the tracks off of it to lacerate your eardrums on this upcoming Summer Slaughter Tour! Fans soon will witness the culmination of this last year’s blood, sweat, and tears honed to a devastating, brutal, and impactful audio document that I feel will resonate with fans of the last few records for years to come. Musically and lyrically, there is a lot of grief, anger, hate, passion, and emotion poured into this one and we have found these can be excellent ingredients for extreme metal. We are once again rejuvenated and ready to spread the death and despair over this sphere that is perpetually being torn apart by us insignificants. There is no map to guide you out of this one – Death Atlas is coming!”
