SIX FEET UNDER: "18 Nights Of Blood Tour" To Be Ignited Tonight!
With nationwide speculation that the zombie apocalypse is officially upon us, it would only seem appropriate for SIX FEET UNDER's "18 Nights Of Blood Tour" to commence this Friday! The near three-week run of live rituals will begin today (June 8th) in Atlanta, Georgia and cannibalize its way across the U.S. coming to a close on the band's home turf of Tampa, Florida. Blood shall be spilled, faces eaten and brains devoured! No one is safe. SIX FEET UNDER will be joined by newly recruited rhythm guitarist Ola Englund who takes the place of Rob Arnold (who retired from touring). Support will be provided by Dying Fetus and Revocation.
The band will be touring in support of 'Undead', their latest installment of misanthropic brutality, which toppled Billboard charts upon its first week of release. ('Undead' entered the Heatseekers Chart at #, #30 on the Top Independent Album Chart, #22 on the Top Hard Music Albums Chart, #14 on the Top Current Albums Chart and #183 on the Top 200 Chart!). Critical lauded by fans and media alike, Decibel Magazine dubbed the record "the best thing SFU have recorded since 'Maximum Violence'," while Terrorizer commended the offering noting," …this is truly an unearthly noise and glorious in its heaving absurdity." Outburn agreed calling 'Undead', "an album on which this NEW level of musicianship adds value without tarnishing SIX FEET UNDER's legacy of brutality." Added MetalSucks thoughtfully: "What makes 'Undead' work is a balance between the tooth grinding intensity of its blasts and the bone-strewn muck of its down-tempo bits."
'Undead' was unleashed to North American ears via Metal Blade on May 22 and offers an updated lineup of Barnes alongside guitarist Rob Arnold (ex- Chimaira), longtime guitarist Steve Swanson (ex-Massacre), bassist Jeff Hughell (ex-Brain Drill, ex-Vile), and drummer Kevin Talley (Dying Fetus, Misery Index, Chimaira).
