OBITUARY's John Tardy Discusses The Carnival Of Death Tour, NEW Album & Future Touring Plans!
Legendary Florida Death Metal ministers OBITUARY are set to kick off their first North American headlining tour in over three years this weekend! Brought to you by Rock The Nation and sponsored by Fender, the Carnival Of Death Tour 2012 will commence this Saturday in Orlando, Florida and tear its way through nearly two dozen cities. Further brutality will come from reunited Death Metallers Broken Hope as well as Decrepit Birth, Jungle Rot and Encrust.
The Carnival Of Death Tour marks OBITUARY’s first full North American tour run as a four-piece with Death Metal alumnus Terry Butler (Death, Six Feet Under, Massacre, Denial Fiend) on bass. For this trek, the band — vocalist John Tardy, drummer Donald Tardy, guitarist Trevor Peres and Butler — compiled a special fan-generated set list that will delve deep into their back catalog to include tunes predominantly off their renowned first three full-lengths: 'Slowly We Rot', 'Cause Of Death' and 'The End Complete'.
We recently had the chance to chat wit OBITUARY's vocalist John Tardy about The Carnival Of Death Tour, the bands NEW album, and the bands plans for the future! Check it out, and see you all at The Carnival Of Death Tour!
As previously announced, Fender will hosting a special contest throughout the duration of the tour. The grand prize winner will receive a Blacktop Stratocaster HH guitar. Contest entries will be accepted at the OBITUARY merch table. Finally, since the tour will be passing through New York City on September 11th, the band saw it fit to remove the “Carnival Of Death” tag for that date and, through an agreement with Live Nation, donate $2 from each ticket sale to a September 11th related charity.
